Conference 'Centre and Periphery: or how to put yourself on the map'
Thursday 15th to Saturday 17th August 2013
The conference will focus on the issue what it means 'to be European' no matter if living in centres or in
the periphery. It raises questions about visual convergence in an increasingly mobile society, about how
to be visible in Europe's art-world, about contemporaneity of diverse lifestyles and mentalities.
