Launch of L’internationale Online

An online platform for research and opinions.

L’Internationale and KASK/School of Arts of University College Ghent present the new online platform for research, resources and discussion, L’Internationale Online. It is a platform where commissioned texts, research and artistic projects are published on a monthly basis.

L’Internationale Online
The platform is organised into four research fields: “Politics of Life and Death,” “Decolonising Practices,” “Real Democracy” and “Alter Institutionality.”


Three contributions have been published this month:
Rastko Močnik, “The Vagaries of the Expression ‘Civil Society’: The Yugoslav Alternative”

Open Source, “Charter for Europe, 1.2″

Aimar Arriola and Nancy Garín, “Global Fictions, Local Struggles (or the distribution of three documents from an AIDS counter-archive in progress)”

The Opinion section, with contributions of a group of invited bloggers, acts as the discussion platform within the site. The invited writers for the period from September till December 2014 are Nazım Hikmet Richard Dikbaş (Istanbul), Izidor Barši, Kaja Krainer, Tjaša Pogačar Podgornik and Andrej Škufca (Ljubljana) and Francisco Godoy Vega (Madrid).


L’Internationale is a confederation of six modern and contemporary art institutions which proposes a space for art within a non-hierarchical and decentralised internationalism, based on the values of difference and horizontal exchange among a constellation of cultural agents, locally-rooted and globally connected. It brings together six major European museums: Moderna galerija (MG+MSUM, Ljubljana); Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía (MNCARS, Madrid); Museu d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona (MACBA, Barcelona); Museum van Hedendaagse Kunst Antwerpen (M HKA, Antwerp); SALT (Istanbul and Ankara) and Van Abbemuseum (VAM, Eindhoven). The confederation takes its name from the workers’ anthem “L’Internationale,” which calls for an equitable and democratic society with reference to the historical labour movement.

L’Internationale Online is the joint initiative of KASK, its coordinator, and the museum confederation L’Internationale within the framework of the five-year programme: The Uses of Art – The Legacy of 1848 and 1989. It is designed by Project Projects.

In The Uses of Art programme L’Internationale works with partners such as Grizedale Arts (GA, Coniston, UK), Liverpool John Moores University (LJMU, Liverpool), Stiftung Universität Hildesheim (UH, Hildesheim, Germany) and University College Ghent School of Arts (KASK, Ghent), along with associate organisations from the academic and artistic fields. The programme is also co-funded by a grant awarded by the Culture Programme of the European Union.

The Uses of Art proposes new readings of European art history for the broader public. This new perspective on the past is anchored in the long history of civil society, tracing it back to the civic revolutions of 1848, through wars and social changes, to the revolutions of 1989, and then to the economic crises of today. L’Internationale Online has the specific function to present the topics addressed in the various activities of L’Internationale, and The Uses of Art programme.

It is a place where both differences and commonalities can appear and be debated.
