Chto Delat
The collective Chto Delat (What is to be done?) was founded in early 2003 in Petersburg by a workgroup of artists, critics, philosophers, and writers with the goal of merging political theory, art, and activism. Chto Delat sees itself as an artistic cell and also as a community organizer for a variety of cultural activities intent on politicizing “knowledge production”. The collective make a strong focus on the issue of cultural workers labour rights and politics of comradeship.

Alessandra Pomaricco
Alessandra Pomarico, PhD in Sociology is originally from Italy and based in NYC. Since 2000 she has been curating international and multidisciplinary artists’ residency programs at the intersection of arts, pedagogy, social issues, nano-politics, and the poetic of relationship in community building. Her practice is based on research and context-based art projects, with a focus on social change.

Igor Friedrich Petković
is an artist, curator and cultural activist. He is engaged in socially and politically committed intercultural art projects and transdisciplinary research fields. He heads APORON 21, an association for arts, culture, and science based in Graz.

Composed of Başak Tuna, Matteo Locci, Maximilian Lehner, Funduk is a three headed brain invested in practice-oriented research operating through a constant feedback loop between performative experiences and textual elaborations. Together they approach contemporary issues with humor, situated perceptiveness and participatory strategies investigating the world beyond coded categories of the political spectrum.

Students, staff, guests and teachers will propose their agency, their mobile and interactive archive of works and an open assembly to engage the city in their action against the war. The archive with the student’s work will be visible the whole day. Under a circus flying tent, from 05—08/09 a series of performances and panel discussions will be open to the public.
