CALL FOR PARTICIPATION International Summer Camp for Contemporary Art Professionals Symptoms of nationalism and critique of nationalism in the practice of contemporary art July 10--17, 2008, Pärnu, Estonia Public Preparation, an international platform for knowledge-production and network-based communication, calls for applications to participate in the 2nd thinking camp for contemporary art professionals which will be held in July 10--17, 2008, in Pärnu, Estonia. Focusing on the symptoms of (anti-)nationalism and the critique of nationalism in contemporary art practice, we invite art professionals, especially curators, theoreticians and art historians, but also artists, who have been dealing with the issue and related topics in their previous practice to participate, to share their knowledge, experience and ideas in the thinking camp which might also take a form of summer school without lectures but a week-long discussion instead. The one-week-long summer camp will focus on following issues: - growing nationalist tendencies in former Eastern European countries as well as "Old Europe", - post-soviet and post-colonial condition, - art in the service of national identity building, - nationalism and its relation to patriotism, - nationalism and its relation to internationalism, - exploiting official and unofficial attributes of nation state in contemporary art, - representation of migration, guest workers and illegal status, - performing citizenship. The summer camp consists of public events and closed workshops: we expect all participants to come up with a small presentation for public event, and continue the discussion in the circle of participants in a more informal atmosphere. Public Preparation team will provide accommodation and modest per diem for all participants, as well as cover the travel cost (partly or entirely) according to the cost of international transportation. Public Preparation team is also open to help with fund-raising. Every case will be treated separately.
