Another Hungary, another Macedonia? Critical rural art and subaltern counterpublics

“The rural is not new. The rural is not static. The rural is not disappearing. (…) The rural is a multitude and it is dynamic, it can be attached or detached from a geography, it can be a mind set, a certain practice or a shared identity. It is a common term without being precise. (…) We are passionate about questioning the cultural hegemony of the urban and advocate making space and time to understand the rural as a place of and for cultural production.” Kathrin Böhm/Wapke Feenstra, Myvillages

After spending one month in the frame of Press to Exit Project Space’s program Visiting Curatorial Initiative in Skopje, Katalin Erdödi gives a presentation of her on-going research into critical art practices in and about the rural and her interest in investigating social change in post-socialist rural spaces through artistic and curatorial strategies.
