Presentation of the Post-Soviet Studies project, School of Engaged Art at PoSoCoMeS conference (The working group on Post-Socialist and Comparative Memory Studies – Memory Studies Association Working Group
29 September. 16:30 – 18:00.
The project is dedicated to developing and redistributing the local knowledge acquired through research on different aspects of current post-communist conditions in Russia and other ex-socialist countries.
There is a certain urgency of doing this programme now. We need to rethink and practise such things as comradeship, the specifics of decolonial development, applied post-Soviet hauntology, antifascist politics and relations between body and territory.
The work of the laboratory consists of a series of collective and individual research, publication and exhibition projects which involve local and international communities.
