INTERNATIONAL FORUM ON EMOTIONAL MATERIALISM (DAY 1)

In the frame of the Festival Mladi Levi we are preparing a summer forum together with the partners of trans-making network – two days, dedicated to lectures, debates, thoughts. Hannah Arendt defines culture as the relationship between society and its objects. As she explains, culture is neither society nor art, nor religion, nor entertainment, nor sports, but the nature of the relation of one to the other, of society to its objects. The trans-making Summer Workshop aims to research the attitude and relations between the society, its ideas, stories, products (including art) and material objects, and to examine the idea of emotional materialism from different angles.

trans making is a network of twenty academic, cultural and activist organizations researching the (public) place making activities and artistic practices promoting alternatives for social, economic and democratic renewal. More information: trans-making.eu.
