these are my suggestions for the next summer seminars:
1)Alternative institutions, curatorial and artistic initiatives, networking, self-organization - decentralization, democratization of art and of socio-political discourses? – (proposals for presentations: WHW, Zagreb; Chto Delat?, St. Petersburg; Rotor, Graz, Wyspa Art Institute, Gdansk)
If sb is interested in this topic – please add of the names of interesting organizations
2)Shifting public spaces, cities in transition. Positioning of art in public debates and production of public spaces in post-socialist countries.
(proposal for presentation: Marius Babias, Berlin/Bucharest
(your suggestons are welcomed).
Also, I confirm the interest in the topics suggested during the feedback session:
-Nationalism and Globalization in Post-Socialist Condition
-Methodologies of Art History, Critical Writing and Curating

Any contribution is welcome.
Subject to funding, there might be a possibility to organize an alumni network meeting sometime in March. I will keep you informed about the outcomes.

Finally I could log in and can post my original comment as a new posting.
Another suggestion will follow this one.
you rock. Thanks a lot. I will also tell last year's participants about the blog. Meanwhile I suggest that we exchange the links related to our professional activities that we have mentioned during the presentations and beyond.
Here are some contributions from me:
--for some texts on Armenian art: www.naac.am
--ACCEA updates its website quite often: www.accea.info
--Utopiana's site is always underconstruction: www.utopiana.am
--for the alternative Armenian pavilion in Venice Biennale: www.underconstructionhome.net
--A version of my presentation that did not take place, can be found on SCCA-Ljubljana's website: http://www.worldofart.org/current/archives/28
This is all from me for now. I will aslo make a selection of the photos you left on the desktop and post them. Also, Grigor is preparing a dvd. I will get hold of it and copy for all of you once I go back to Armenia in October.
