The evening is dedicated to the issue of Ostrava scene/s and will be discussed in several blocs using a metaphor of ruin, which is also the theme of our year-long cycle. Individual parts of the discussion will be based on the contributions by our guests. Together, we will try to look at image(s) of the Ostrava art, cultural and social-activist scene.
The metaphor of ruin could help us find in the organism of the scene(s) surviving forms of the past that offer the possibility to glance the identity of the area and establish relationships to the past and the future that aren’t necessarily linear and succeed to bridge the gaps in the continuity of the scene or field. We can jump over, run away and come together across fields and in their tracks. We can construct, remember, imagine and search for new modes of collaboration, sharing, care, responsibility and creation enriched with other senses and languages.
The program is part of the online publishing house Octopus Press.
