Symposium Transkulturalität 2021
7. + 8. Mai 2021, Online event
The crisis of European border politics and current struggles against deportations and illegal push-backs from EU countries including Austria have led to various political, activist as well as artistic interventions. This transdisciplinary symposium creates a forum to address the potential of cinematic and musical politics and to look into their relation to activist practices and current research.
Our goal is to bring activism, the arts and academia in contact. We want to explore, how these differing approaches interconnect in contesting contemporary border regimes and their devastating effects.
Preparatory team: Evelyn Annuß, Julia Fent (coordination), Ursula Hemetek, Therese Kaufmann, Gerda Müller, Hande Sağlam
