1) Results of the 1st meeting of the international EAM committee, Ljubljana, Slovenia, June 24-25, 2005

The international EAM committee met for the first time in Ljubljana on June 24/25, 2005, in order to review and discuss the propositions submitted for the East Art Map. Members of the EAM committee were Jesa Denegri, Lia Perjovschi, Anda Rottenberg, Georg Schoellhammer, and Christoph Tannert.

The following artists/projects will be included in the East Art Map:

2) East Art Museum, exhibition at the Karl Ernst Osthaus-Museum der Stadt Hagen, Germany (September 10 – November 13, 2005)

The idea of the exhibition (curated by IRWIN – Miran Mohar, Andrej Savski, Borut Vogelnik – and Michael Fehr) is to present a proposal for the establishment of a Museum of East European Art which is to collect the seminal works of art from Eastern Europe from the period after the second world war and could – on the long run – be developed into an institution of relevance and reputation comparable to the position the Museum of Modern Art has achieved for Western Art. In setting up this task, the EAST ART MUSEUM-project is, however, by no means a naïve attempt to reach out to an insurmountable goal but rather a complex work of Concept Art reflecting the conditions of creating and establishing an art-historical canon as well as its institutional shell.

3) Mind the Map! – History Is Not Given. Symposium, Schaubühne Lindenfels, Leipzig, October 13-16, 2005

The international and interdisciplinary symposium “Mind the Map! – History Is Not Given” gathers young researchers as well as professors and artists. In taking up the impulse of the “East Art Map” project of the Slovenian artists’ collective IRWIN, the organisers want to set up a platform for reflections on constellations of contemporary art between Eastern and Western realities in Europe.

“Mind the Map! – History Is Not Given” is part of the “East Art Map University Network”, an international collaboration of eight partners from Leipzig, Vienna, Belgrade, Bonn, St. Petersburg, Graz and Poznan. This exchange is supposed to be the starting point of a lasting practice in the co-operative triangle of arts, humanities and social initiatives.

Organisers: Prof. Dr. Marina Grzinic (Vienna/Ljubljana), Prof. Dr. Günther Heeg, Dr. Veronika Darian (Institute of Theatre Studies, University of Leipzig)
Collaborators: Prof. Dr. Beatrice von Bismarck (Leipzig), Prof. Dr. Grzegorz Dziamski (Poznan), Prof. Dr. Ekaterina Degot (St. Petersburg), Dr. Michael Fehr (Bonn), Prof. Dr. Werner Fenz (Graz), Prof. Dr. Misko Suvakovic (Belgrade)

“Mind the Map! – History Is Not Given” is a project of the Institute of Theater Studies of the University of Leipzig in co-operation with “East Art Map”, Slovenia, and relations.
