  • Guest Lecture from Sinthujan Varatharajah (Cancelled)

    What constitutes a voice that is raised to free itself from social bondage and political bias? What is true decolonisation? Sinthujan Varatharajah asks this question in his work - whether text, image or spoken word. How can violent domination be broken and how does this change our form of society? Let us discuss!

  • D-Arts - Impulse lecture - Diversity in the Austrian cultural landscape?

    As a project co-operation partner of the exhibition project Soundscapes of Intersectional Encounters: Exploring Identity Through Sound, D/Arts is an important contemporary input provider at a local level. The exchange between the academy, as a generator of knowledge, other cultural organisations and groups that are not at the assumed centre of a cultural landscape is exciting and will be discussed here.
