Counterhegemony: Think Laboratory at CAC in Vilnius

Friday, December 5th-Sunday, December 7th, 2014                                                            

“Counterhegemony: Think Laboratory” is a three-day unofficial school of the “Counterhegemony: Art in a Social Context NIDA Fellowship Program,” with talks, performances, & discussions, a culmination of the Counterhegemony program’s exploration of politics of participatory spectatorship, art & law, and Foucault’s notion of geneaology.

 Full programe is here.

In the vein of Brazilian educator Paulo Freire, seminal thinker of the critical pedagogy movement, “Counterhegemony: Think Laboratory” is a non-hierarchical platform for ideas that rejects the traditional hierarchy between speaker and audience. Each plenary is presented as a provisional “proposition” to be responded to by the audience: We invite the public of Contemporary Art Centre, Vilnius (Vokiečių str. 2) to participate in our 3-day think tank as we brainstorm to foster a critical vocabulary and new ways of engaging with the issue of counterhegemonic discourse, art, cultural production and activism: 3 DAYS FOR 10 PROPOSITIONS. The event will happen in CAC Reading room (Vokieciu str. 2, Vilnius, Lithuania).
