Moderator: Dana Domșodi

After decades of sophisticated historical research and professional myth busting, academic and popular images of the Enlightenment seem today to be further apart than ever. However, the political question of the legacies of the Enlightenment, whether salutary or deleterious, is once again in season. This talk will argue, firstly, that these legacies are contextual, contradictory, open-ended and ready to be appropriated in creative ways; and secondly, that more than theories, values or attitudes, critical or political – the quest for peace, rationalism, secularism, tolerance, rights of man etc. -, it was above all a few epistemic dislocations brought about by the Enlightenment that proved to be revolutionary for the modern understanding of history, culture and society.

ON READING AS A SOCIAL RELATION

online reading group /


June, 2021

Participants: Noa Treister, Anca Benera & Arnold Estefan, Baran Carangli, Dana Andrei, Beatrice Anghelache, Cătălin Gheorghe, Maxim Polyakov, Mădălina Muscă, Bogdan Popa, Ovidiu Pop, Valentin Cernat, Smaranda Ursuleanu, Andrei Timofte, Ruxandra Simion, Delia Bulgaru, Florin Bobu, Livia Pancu.

The debate between Jean Luc Nancy and Maurice Blanchot started in the 80’s around the question of the constitution of a community in the exchange surrounding Nancy’s The Inoperative Community and Blanchot’s The Unavowable Community, and recently a belated answer in Nancy’s The Disavowed Community surround the question of reading and the subject. Following these texts we will be asking who is the subject that reads and how is reading always already together. This has extreme relevance to artists and scholars that find themselves frequently outside the conventional professional gathering places like galleries, museums or universities and are craving dialog and a sense of community.

Through an in depth theoretical and artistic examination of the practice of reading together we will examine how art and culture are becoming an important factor in education and especially peer to peer and intergenerational informal education. As a result, the group exhibitions, the reading groups, the publications will raise awareness and build the capacity of artists and cultural operators to assume this role of educators.

Cul-de-Sac Economics: Europe on the Brink of Climate Meltdown

Science tells us that we are playing a pyramid scheme with the habitability of our Earth. It also tells is that we are getting close to the panic and unravelling stages of that pyramid scheme, with a stabilization of warming at below 2 degrees Celsius being our optimistic scenario. This reckless game is embedded in institutional complementarities that make it politically and economically costly to arrest the causal generators of environmental collapse. It seems that as a species we can’t help but have the greatest death wish of all.

The Art of Activism and the Activism of Art

FEINART Lecture Series with Gregory Sholette, Artist, Activist, Writer /


19.03.2021 – starting at 5:00pm CET

In the frame of the FEINART lecture series the author Gregory Sholette approaches his subject from the unusual dual perspective of commentator (as scholar and writer) and insider (as activist artist). He describes a new wave of activist art taking place not only within community-based protest groups, as it has for decades, but also amongst professionally trained, MFA-bearing art practitioners, many of whom, by choice or by circumstance, refuse to respect the conventional borders separating painting from protest, or art from utility.
