Programme/Project objectives

Digitizing Ideas; Archives of Conceptual Art Practice The project seeks to address the gap in education on and raise general awareness of conceptual art practices in Central and South-eastern Europe of 60s and 70s, where despite lacking communication with the Western world, ideas and creativity found their paths to artistic expression. Understanding of conceptual art practices and intentions, traditionally considered to be hermetic and inaccessible to the general public, will be increased through developing custom educational tools and materials – an open-access internet portal combined with interactive online spaces that will enable cross-national sharing of information and knowledge on conceptual art. Workshops and lectures held by artists and museum professional from participating countries will also be organized, in order to encourage interests, self-education and knowledge exchange practices within wider parts of various communities.
