#Wissenschaftlicher Vortrag/Symposium #Film #Performance #mdwStream

Freitag, 7.5. von 15:00 bis 19:30

Veranstaltung findet online statt

The crisis of European border politics and current struggles against deportations and illegal push-backs from EU countries including Austria have led to various political, activist as well as artistic interventions. This transdisciplinary symposium creates a forum to address the potential of cinematic and musical politics and to look into their relation to activist practices and current research.

Our goal is to bring activism, the arts and academia in contact with each other. We want to explore how these differing approaches interconnect in contesting contemporary border regimes and their devastating effects.

Event held in English.

The event will be livestreamed at mdwMediathek.
