21 - 24 June 2011, Moderna galerija, Ljubljana, Slovenia

Organised by: engage and Moderna galerija

The programme focuses on two main issues: on the one hand, on the present local situations in the territory of former Yugoslavia, where state museums of contemporary art are either closed (the Museum of Contemporary Art in Belgrade), have only recently opened (the Museum of Contemporary Art Zagreb), or are just about to open for the first time in history (Moderna galerija - Museum of Contemporary Art Metelkova); and on the other, on the still unresolved question how a newly built art museum can establish a relationship with its - as a rule disinterested - neighbourhood. On the basis of case studies of the Museum of Contemporary Art Belgrade / Centre for Visual Culture and Information and the Student Cultural Centre from Belgrade in the 1970s we will try to find out if the socialist slogan "art to the people" can be of some relevance to the educational practices in the 21th century.

The key speakers of the summer school will be Nada Beroš, senior curator at the Museum of Contemporary Art Zagreb, Jasna Tijardović, ex-curator at the Centre for Visual Culture at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Belgrade, now a free-lance art critic, and Adela Železnik, senior curator at the Moderna galerija.
