[Nettime-nl] Becoming Dutch in Tallinn (Modified by Geert Lovink)


TRANSLOCAL EXPRESS. JUBILEE EDITION
Date: Feb 21-23, 2008
Venue: Museum of Occupations, Toompea 8, Tallinn

An international seminar in the series of Public Preparation events
addressing the growing tendencies of nationalism on Eastern borders of
Europe (from Helsinki to Istanbul) and its relation to contemporary art.

Whereas in the former socialist block national resistance to the 
socialist
system is remembered in a positive way, the current re-emergence of
nationalist sentiments in Europe more generally is an alarming tendency
which is often accompanied by growing phenomena of xenophobia and 
racism.
The critique of nationalism becomes especially urgent in the light of 
the
growing reality of migration which is now under debate extensively. 
Since
the production of culture is often expected to support the ideas and
values connected to the idea of nation, a critical response from the
cultural field is an urgency of our time.
Translocal Express. Jubilee Edition takes place in parallel with the
celebrations of the 90th anniversary of the Republic of Estonia, aiming 
to
turn attention to alternative ways how to think about society in the era
of global democracy as a counterperspective to the narrow nationalist
mindsets that are dominant in contemporary Estonia.

Speakers: Sezgin Boynik (Istanbul), Charles Esche (Eindhoven), Annie
Fletcher (Amsterdam/Eindhoven), Minna Henriksson (Helsinki/Istanbul), 
Flo
Kasearu (Tallinn), Karolis Klimka (Vilnius), Oliver Kochta-Kalleinen
(Helsinki), Eleonore de Montesquiou (Berlin/Tallinn), Joanna Rajkowska
(Warsaw), Petri Saarikko (Helsinki), Maria- Kristiina Soomre (Tallinn),
Marko Stamenkovic (Amsterdam/Belgrade), Tomas Tomilinas (Vilnius).

The seminar language is English.
