As part of the sixth year of the Art & Tech Days 2022: CHANGE festival, the discussion Košice 2.0 x UNLEARNING – 20 years of art for social change in the V4 region will take place on November 22 at 17:00 in Kasárne/Kulturpark.

Is art a tool for inspiring social activities and creating institutional change? What role has art played in the integration of Eastern Europe over the past 20 years? How have artistic practices aimed at initiating changes in the economy, education, and climate protection changed in recent years? 

American writer and futurist Alvin Toffler said: “The illiterates of the 21st century is not those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn and learn anew” 

This year’s discussion at Art & Tech Days will offer us to learn about experiences of artistic activities for social change in Eastern Europe in the last 20 years and to understand how to utilize art as an instrument to stimulate innovative solutions, to inspire people to act and to facilitate change in the today’s communities. 

Through the discussion we want to emphasize the role of art as an instrument of social change that can prevent radicalization and stimulate innovative solutions to contemporary problems and inspire people to act.  

Dora Kenderová, director of the East Slovak Gallery, Ján Šimko, theater director and pedagogue at VŠMU, Oto Hudec, artist and activist, and Juliana Berberich Sokolová, writer and philosopher will come to discuss.
