Public Sphere: Between Contestation and Reconciliation, Yerevan, Armenia
In collaboration with Dave Beech we have been invited to give a paper, Functions, Functionality and Functionlessness at a conference entitled Public Sphere: Between Contestation and Reconciliation, three day symposium organized by National Association of Art Critics in Yerevan, Armenia. This symposium draws on critical research into concepts of the public sphere and its relation to public space and traditions of the public monument. It also explores the relation of individual and national identities as shaped by cultural environments, and the functions of cultural work in the future development of a democratic public sphere. The symposium is contextualized by the transition, in both eastern and western Europe, to a post-socialist period.
The symposium runs from 24th - 27th October 2005
