international summer forum trans-making:
ON EMOTIONAL MATERIALISM, 28.–30. 8. 2019

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 forum 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 multilateral network of academic and non-academic organizations researching the (public) place making activities and artistic practices as a space to create alternative narratives for social, economic and democratic renewal. More information: trans-making.eu

PROGRAM
Wednesday,
28th August 2019

10.00–18.00 trans-making welcome picnic at Ulovka
PICNIC
is a special opportunity for a relaxed trans-making friends-making. We will leave Ljubljana city centre by bus in the morning and go to Ulovka, a small hill 30 minutes drive out of town. It is a charming little space on the top of the hill, with delicious food, soft grass in the tree shadows and a great view over Ljubljansko Barje (Ljubljana Marshes). And we will bring the perfect company with us.
