Prague symposium: Porous Borders - Call for presentations

Feb 20, 2017

The Prague Quadrennial announces a call for presentations for the Prague symposium: Porous Borders.

Finland: student exposition, PQ 2015
International Curatorial Practices
October 12nd – 14th, Prague

 We would like to invite all national and regional curators, performance art professionals, educators and theorists to celebrate the 50th birthday of PQ and look at the current curatorial practices by sharing your thoughts, ideas and concepts at the Porous Borders symposium. We will also visit the space where the next 14th edition of Prague Quadrennial will be taking place.
We live in the world that is rapidly changing, where the topic of borders, individual and collective identity, cultural thresholds, fast paced movement across boundaries and constant reframing of realities are woven through our thoughts and our lives.
The tensions between local and global, international and national are rising in many parts of the world and the question of identity and border between familiar and other is going through complex evolution bringing both uncertainty and new creative energy.
We are interested in entries and presentations that are exploring the theme of borders, meaning of boundaries, tensions between categories and boundless imagination, thresholds and liminal places between internal and external in connection with international curatorial practices and or creative process of performance design.
Here are three main areas of interest:
Short 5-minute show and tell proposals:
