Critical Practice (Made in Yu) seminar
Conceived by Ana Vujanović

February 27 – March 3, 2023

→ ZOOM link

The initial seminar of the new cycle of the Critical Practice (Made in YU) program will evolve around: recent critical discourses in performing arts and culture, coming from the cultural space of Yugoslavia, favourite (inspiring, influential, important) texts proposed by the participants, and works of the participants of the previous cycles of the CP program.

Format-wise, we will combine discussions of assigned readings, talks with authors of texts, and working sessions.

The texts selected to be discussed or talked about with invited authors are to be read in advance.

Further seminar-like situations will be self-organized and based on the texts proposed by the participants.
