<nettime-ann> Translocal Express, Feb 16 Tallinn

Translocal Express

Date: February 16, 2007. 
Time: 1 p.m.
Venue: Academic Library of Tallinn University, Rävala
pst 10, Tallinn.

A public discussion about the institutional, political
and social aspects of current practices of cultural
collaboration in the world of contemporary art.

The main purpose of Translocal Express is to
investigate how are the current debates in relation
with the transition from national identity politics to
transnational identity discourse affecting the
cultural landscape in relatively small national
communities. Translocal Express is exploring the
changing role of art institutions, as well as artists
and independent curators in the situation where
contemporary art practices are becoming more and more
decentralized and extraterritorial, yet the political
and cultural institutions remain to be bound to a
certain territory. From this perspective, Translocal
Express offers examples for debate in- and outside of
the disputable but still operative global-local
dichotomy, by discussing alternative ways for
production, representation and perception of
contemporary art in the working methods of
contemporary institutional spaces as well as
independent cultural practices.

Speakers: Annie Fletcher, independent curator,
Amsterdam; Anders Härm, curator at Art Hall Tallinn;
Kestutis Kuizinas, director of CAC, Contemporary Art
Centre Vilnius; Marita Muukkonen, project coordinator
for FRAME, Finnish Fund for Art Exchange, Helsinki.

Translocal Express is the first of three events in the
Public Preparation series, the public preparation
phase for the upcoming Biennale of Young Artists in

time constitutes the publicly visible preparation
process of the Biennale as well as the course of
preparing and educating the public for the Biennale.
