Irit Rogoff: A lecture on borders and freedom as seen in contemporary art Commentary and discussion with Polish artist Joanna Rajkowska

Since the post-communist transformations of the late 1980s and the 1990s in Eastern and Central Europe and the ensuing EU enlargement of 2004, migration has become a significant trait within contemporary Europe and an increasingly important factor in social conflict affecting various parts of the continent. Contemporary migration and/or emigration has brought a new political rhetoric, resulting in social turmoil as well as new cultural, literary and artistic production. In our seminar series in 2013, these problems will be scrutinized based on the discussion on particular literary and cultural events within Polish culture.

This event was co-hosted by UCL SSEES & The Polish Institute
