press to exit project space together with The Museum of Contemporary Art invites you to the lecture by Anton Lederer, co-founder of <rotor> Center for Contemporary Art in Graz, Austria.

In his lecture Anton Lederer will focus on the question of institutional strategies. What kind of art do we want to present and produce? And, whom do we want do address with our cultural activities?
Many art institutions and initiatives face the same situation: There is a well informed but relatively small audience of experts and art lovers. How can we attract other people for contemporary art who often think that it is too complicated and only for insiders? Anton Lederer will follow the idea that an art production which is related to people's personal life circumstances and touches questions of the nowadays society is able to raise strong interest of many.

Stacion - Center for Contemporary Art Prishtina is pleased to introduce the presentation of Yane Calovski and Angelika Stepken, part of the Public Program of Summer School as School 2017.

Yane Calovski's presentation 'Former City: Burning of a Modernist Past', has a starting point in the following statement:
Every time we experience loss of something associated with our collective history, be that a document, a building or a person, we feel that we’ve also lost our footing both in the present and the future. It is a disconcerting, disorienting and ultimately, debilitating experience. When that which is lost is an important modernist archive of a former state institution (privatized since the mid 90’s) we are not sure where to direct the anger, disappointment but also our reawaken sense of responsibility to do something and regain the ground and the possibility of critical discussion.
