Rijeka 2020 - Port of Diversity

Starting from George Yudice’s analysis of culture as an expedient for extra-artistic ends I will look at the development of the European Capital of Culture project in order to better understand its current iteration taking place in Rijeka, a city where I live and have been, by the sheer scale of the art scene (that is small) and the ECOC Rijeka 2020 (that expanded over time and space), inevitably connected to the process of its implementation and realisation.

 

Iva Kovač's AEROPONIC ACT Rijeka 2020 - Port of Diversity will be live-streamed from Radio Kootwijk on August 25th at 2.10am

Afterwards Amit S. Rai, Ana Teixeira Pintoand Adam Szymczyk will respond to the question What Diversity?
