»New Weird Postost – Alliances, Differences and the Decolonisation of the ›East‹« (En)
Russia’s war in Ukraine has challenged the already complex and diverse Postost community – there’s potential for broad solidarity, but also for conflict. This talk will bring together figures from the cultural scene with post-socialist backgrounds to discuss alliances, differences and competitions in the communities. What is Postost anyway? Is there actually a fixed community and self-conception? How do collective processes affect artistic creation? How are identity, collective and work related for Postost artists? Why is decolonisation of the Postost region so important? What happens to a community that is constantly confronted with new waves of migration? Mariia Vorotilina (curator and activist) and journalist Anastasia Tikhomirova will discuss these issues. The talk is conceived and hosted by Julia Boxler (X3 Podcast – the first German Postost podcast).
