Discussion in the frame of Romafuturismo Library /



We are sorry and hope we will be able to re-open this topic soon.

Vietnamese Periodicals in the 1950s and 1960s: Coded Languages of Aesthetics

lecture & discussion /

Alongside the development of art schools and museums in early to mid 20th century Vietnam, the periodical served as a critical platform for the construction of ideas about the arts. As the most established of artistic practices, literature and literary language held prominence and the periodical was a meeting ground wherein writers and artists constructed, debated, and refined their positions about modern and contemporary art and literature. This talk examines Nhân Văn (Humanism), Giai Phẩm (Works), and Sáng Tạo (Creativity), three periodicals that were published in 1950s-1960s Hanoi and Saigon.

The Kyiv International – ’68 NOW

The Kyiv International edition of May 2018 will explore the political and cultural heritage of the revolt and struggle of 1968, considering the antinomies of this moment for the West and East of Europe fifty years onward. The legacy of May 1968 remains a symbol of liberation and rebellion against entrenched power structures, and a cultural and artistic benchmark for Western Europe. The commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the Prague Spring and Soviet military invasion of Czechoslovakia – most immediate in Eastern Europe – continue to define political and cultural divides across the continent. By overlapping the contrasting dimensions of this event, which is the starting point of contemporaneity, The Kyiv International – ’68 NOW contributes to the development of a united European subjectivity grounded in democratic internationalism, based on the principles of solidarity and inclusivity.
