Citified. How Central Europe dreamt of big cities – lecture by Dr. Agnieszka Karpowicz, professor at Warsaw University, part of a programme accompanying the exhibition Years of Disarray: Art of the Avant-Garde in Central Europe 1908–1928.

“As for the air, oxygen pipes may be perhaps built in imitation of water pipes in order to bring down oxygen from the layers of atmosphere high up above the houses or from distant country forests. Or this may well turn out too simple, and a special facility will be set up within the city to manufacture oxygen for breathing and to distribute it to its consumers the way the present-day gas and electricity companies do. But never mind the unknowns of the future.” Tadeusz Peiper’s fantasy of a modern city summarises the region’s avant-garde visions that pivoted around projects for urban modernisation and development. Like other metropolitan fancies of the era, it raises problems the avant-garde pipe dreams bounced off in various cities across Central Europe.

Dr. Agnieszka Karpowicz – expert in cultural and literary studies at the Institute of Polish Culture of Warsaw University, member of its Studio of Urban Studies. Her interest focuses on the anthropology of literature and history of 20th-century culture from the communicative perspective, especially the neo-avant-garde language practices, literature and 20th-century art and their links with urban culture and space.

Go Out To the Street! – lecture by Natalia Goncharova in the Polish-Russian Dialogue at the International Cultural Centre series

The lecture will recall the work and experience of leading Russian performance artists of the second half of the 20th century in an attempt to answer a range of questions on matters inherent in this art discipline. Does performance art help change the approach to urban, museum or any other type space? What is the role of context, including the urban context, in creating contemporary performances? What effect does that have on where the borderline lies between the personal and the public?

Natalia Goncharova – art historian, curator of exhibitions of contemporary art, deputy director of the Department of Art Programmes at the National Centre for Contemporary Art in Moscow (http://www.ncca.ru/), researcher in performance art in Poland and Russia; currently fellow of the Centre for Polish-Russian Dialogue and Understanding.

The Romanian allure of the avant-garde – lecture by Erwin Kessler, professor at the University of Bucharest, part of a programme accompanying the exhibition Years of Disarray: Art of the Avant-Garde in Central Europe 1908–1928.

The lecture will look critically at Romanian art in the first decades of the 20th centuries. It will focus on processes that veered the course of moderate modernisation of artistic practices and languages typical of the La belle époque aesthetics in the first years before World War II to a radical avant-garde after the war.

Erwin Kessler – professor of art history and aesthetics at the University of Bucharest; faculty member of the Institute of Philosophy in Bucharest; founder of the MARe Museum of Recent Art in Bucharest. The key areas of his research include history, aesthetics and theory of Modernist, avant-garde and contemporary art, phenomenological aesthetics and visual anthropology.

The lecture is delivered in cooperation with the Olomouc Museum of Art and the Romanian Institute of Culture in Warsaw.
