ŠUM STUDY SEMINAR AT MGLC

The ŠUM Study Seminar at MGLC is a series of meetings or talks focusing on the contemporary art practices and their strategies of the mainly (but not exclusively) younger generation of artists from the local area. It is prepared by the research collective of ŠUM magazine in collaboration with the International Centre of Graphic Arts.

The theme of the seminar focuses on the systemic aspect of contemporary art and its relating issues, which are in the local arena resolved by exiting into the personal.

The close, more or less professional communities, composed of public sector institutions, non-governmental organizations and initiatives interested in the public, delineated into narrow cultural districts and with stunted funding opportunities, are increasingly becoming the space where new hybrid relations are being formed. These cut across, or at least blur the boundary between work and leisure, between the professional and the personal, replacing the once formalist cultural values with the values of belonging, familiarity and likeability.

The seminar aims to promote the reflection on seemingly unproblematic and positive aspects of this type of exit from the alienation of professionalism. In line with this, it tackles the analysis of artworks and theoretical projects that provide different approaches to the phenomenon of the personal outlined in such a way. Besides the specific issues of the works discussed, the seminar will, through the individual meetings, also address the questions of what kinds of system, processes of subjectivation, work potential and personal commitment such a cultural organization can give rise to, and, most importantly, what are the possible responses to these.
