SPACESHIP SKYPE SESSION: Sweet Sixties
February 7 2014 at 16:00 – 17:00
With special guests Lesley Ma and Yehuda E. Safran, “Report on the Construction of a Spaceship Module” Co-curator Georg Schöllhammer will host an informal launch of the book Specters and Spirits of a Parallel Avant-Garde. This was published as part of the Sweet Sixties project (2010–13), a long-term trans-regional research initiative working between art, media, and educational contexts in Europe, the Middle East, western and central Asia, Latin America, and northern Africa. Involving a particular group of experimentally oriented arts and research groups as well as individual artists, researchers, and media, Sweet Sixties investigates hidden histories or underexposed cultural junctions and exchange channels in the revolutionary period of the 1960s.
