Discussion: Noncompliance – Belarus, Culture and Activism
The clash in Belarus between society and the government is the struggle of a 20th century, archaic regime against 21st century, high-tech society. The crude state television is engaged in a battle with modern Internet communication channels, and the KGB and militia with creative, peaceful forms of protest. Where does the current strength of civic unrest come from, and can art be of any help in the fight against the regime? Moderated by Kaja Puto, a journalist specializing in Eastern and Central Europe, this discussion will include Polish-Belarusian visual artist Jana Shostak, and experimental musician and lecturer Pavel Niakhayeu and Ana Lok, a curator, art manager and artivist, based in Minsk.
