Residencies Insights: Bojana Piškur in conversation with Škart collective

Subject

Description

This discussion aims to address ideas, ideals, and principles of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) that are relevant today and can be applied to the field of art and culture. The Belgrade-based collective Škart will present their artistic project related to the topic with a specific focus on the context of Singapore, while Bojana Piškur will talk about her long-term curatorial research on NAM’s politics in terms of exhibition-making, networking, and cultural exchange. Looking beyond the complex history of the Movement, the speakers intend to situate NAM’s progressive cultural policies, museum models, and emancipatory utopias in the present mapping out new possible prototypes for today’s art institutions, networks, and cultural politics.

Representing a major disruption in the Cold War geopolitical order, the Non-Aligned Movement was a coalition of small and middle-sized states, mostly former colonies and developing countries from the so-called Third World. Founded in 1961 at the Belgrade summit with 25 participating countries, it grew to encompass almost 100 members in 1979. Singapore became a full-time member in 1970. The Non-Aligned Movement functioned as a third way between the two major power blocs in the Cold War era; it aimed to change existing global structures and create a more just, equal, and peaceful world order. The member states subscribed to principles such as mutual respect for each other’s territorial integrity and sovereignty, mutual non-aggression and non-interference in domestic affairs, equality and peaceful co-existence.
