The symposium Fragments of Empire brings together critical research and interventions in the history of spaces / and the history of mobilisation that has taken/ and just now takes place.  Its theoretical and artistic lectures are situated in the social and political fields of textile and media histories and focus on the relation of labour, capital, migration, and archives. The participants deal with very concrete historical or contemporary case studies, where the local is set up as starting point for the analysis of translocal power structures. They act and reflect upon alternative, critical, intervention narratives that articulate themselves as transformative, theoretical and respectively artistic interventions.

The speakers for Collaborative Futures are from the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna (Austria) from Ljubljana (Slovenia), and from Ukraine, they are students, young researchers, professors, artists and scholars.
