On Thursday 13 June at 19:00 there will be a presentation of the Slovenian artist Maja Hodošček in a dialogue with the art historian Irena Borić. Along with the talk and video screening in the From the Citizens to Their City’s premises in Križanićeva 6a, there will also be the promotion of the Second Issue of the GSG Magazine for Contemporary Art and Social Issues of From the Citizens to Their City Initiative that focuses on artistic and non-artistic practices aimed at developing social cohesion and strengthening disadvantaged communities.
GSG Magazine for Contemporary Art and Social Questions of the From the Citizens to Their City Initiative, will be presented on June 12, at 19:00 in Križanićeva 6a. The magazine will be issued twice a year, in spring and autumn. The first issue, dedicated to queer and feminist topics, was created from the contributions of the organizers of the Smoqua festival — the first regional queer and feminist festival held in Rijeka*. To continue the dialogue in-between the festival preparations we invited Lori, Pariter and the Center for Women’s studies to reflect on queer and feminism from their respective fields and interests.
Join us on the 5th of April at 6pm in Križanićeva 6a on Andrei Siclodi’s presentation The Site of Inquiry: On Investigative Art Practices and Critical Knowledge Production within the Institutional Setting of a Precarious Residency organised by From the Citizens to their City.
In the fourth edition of Knowledge Exchange, From the Citizens to Their City will host curator Jelena Pašić and artist Matija Kralj. Together they will present the Cultural Elevator, the project that took place in a residential building of Zagreb’s neighborhood Segečica, whose aim was to introduce contents of art and contents about art into the context of everyday life.
The guest in public discussion Memory in Literature – A personal Approach, which will be held in Knowledge Exchange 3, is Ahmed Burić, a distinguished poet and novelist, an important author from our region. The discussion will be moderated by Željka Horvat Čeč, and apart from this talk about memories and the work of Ahmed Burić, we will present Burić’s novel that deals with the subject of memory, Tebi šega što se zovem Donald?.
Join us on September 16, 2017, at 7 PM, in café “Piramida”, at a presentation of a “modest proposal” that is organized by platform From Citizens to Their City.
