In this lecture performance, Ana Miljanić, (co-founder and director of the CZKD) traces the social, cultural, and political changes of the last three decades that have influenced the work of the Center for Cultural Decontamination (CZKD) in Belgrade. The Center is a non-profit cultural institution founded in 1994 in response to the need to articulate and sustain anti-war activities. Today, the Center clearly recognizes different circumstances at all levels of political life, from civil society to global political events. In collaboration with curator Ana Sladojević, Ana Miljanić reflects on what it means for an independent public institution to be political today, based on the Center’s archives.
Followed by a Q&A with Oliver Frljić
