8-10, April 2011 Belgrade – Sarajevo – Konjic

We cordially invite you to Cold War 2 – The Society, the second in the series of panel discussions COLD WAR – Past, Present, Future that will be held in Belgrade, Sarajevo and Konjic from April 8 to April 10, 2011. It will focus on the ramifications of two types of antagonisms: firstly, between two visions of a society (a socialist one and a liberal-capitalist one); secondly, between the productions of cultural constructs of “East” and “West”.

Both antagonisms have their contemporary implications: the gradual disappearance of the notion of society and peace that are replaced by a notion of community(ies) and security i.e. the reproduction and reiteration of the East/West cultural distinctions established during the Cold War period, such as transition, democratization, and privatization.
The seminar accompanies the forthcoming exhibition Time Machine - No Network in the D-0 ARK Underground – 27. 05 - 07. 08. 2011 in Konjic (Bosnia- Hercegovina), Centre for Cultural Decontamination (Belgrade) is organizing a three-part series of panel discussions intended to form the contextual landscape of the exhibition.

The discussions will reflect on a number of historical and theoretical issues prompted by the Cold War period, not only in its historical delineation, but also as a paradigm of the present and future tenses in the grammar of politics, culture, imagination and history.
Like the Cold War itself, actions undertaken as part of the "Cold War" project target whole populations, regardless of age, gender or any self-defined or externally-imposed affiliation. This is not a project designed exclusively for an academic audience, but also for the general public.

Round Table – To What Extent Has The Cultural Cold War Ended…?

Center for Cultural Decontamination, Bircaninova 21, Belgrade

As a political and a technological conflict, Cold War was also a struggle for cultural supremacy, in spite of the modernist vision, shared by both sides, of one harmonized and standardized cultural horizon. Cold War as defined by the disciplines of history, political science or area studies, might be over but culturally it has left behind a disparity between the East and the West, which has transcended its political origins. How was this antagonism constructed, designed and represented? How was it transformed into a cultural canon and how does it aesthetically and politically effect contemporary cultural and artistic production?
Participants:
Ljiljana Blagojevic – Architecture theorist and architecture historian (Faculty of Architecture, Belgrade)
David Crowley – Design historian (Royal College of Art, London)
Branislav Dimitrijevic – Art historian (College of Fine and Applied Arts, Belgrade)
Ines Weizman – Architecture theorist (Metropolitan University, London)
Radina Vucetic – Historian (Faculty of Philosophy, Belgrade)
Moderator: Svebor Midžic, Belgrade

Must Society be defended?

Boshniak Institute Adil Zulfikarpašic Fondation, Mula Mustafe Bešeskije 21, Sarajevo
              
Unlike contemporary wars, the Cold War has had the concept of peace, as its political condition, which allowed political antagonism. The ideological division – Socialism vs. Liberal Capitalism from the Eastern viewpoint and Democracy vs. Totalitarianism from the western viewpoint  - held for many years during the Cold War, was the main field of antagonism in the formation and formulation of the concept of society, on both sides of the Iron Curtain. Today, after the end of Cold War, together with the notion of peace notions of politics and society have also disappeared. They have been replaced by the notions of community and security. How could we understand, this disappearance and its replacement and reconstruct the once self-evident, concept of society, which implied solidarity and self-organization of society and resistance to Cold War State?

Zdravko Grebo – Law theorist (Faculty of Philosophy, Sarajevo)
