Marshall D. Shulman Seminar Room (1219 IAB, 420 W 118th St.)
Please join us for a workshop on curating, publishing and programming contemporary culture from East Central Europe abroad.
This workshop calls for an interlude for reflection in the work of showcasing abroad cultural production from Poland and the surrounding areas of East Central Europe. Two panels of participants involved in carrying abroad art, literature and film will convene to discuss the choices and constraints that shape their activities. We will pause to take in a wide view of the protocols that both facilitate and govern the export of contemporary culture to international audiences and markets. What are conceptual taxes levied on the export of culture?
Co-sponsored by the Harriman Institute, the Adam Mickiewicz Institute and the East Central European Center at Columbia University.
