20th Century Heritage

15th - 16th July 2022

The international symposium 20th Century Heritage will be held in the 
organization of the Grey Area association in the Korčula town museum on July 15 
and 16, 2022. The symposium points to cultural and artistic good practices from 
the history of the 20th century and the uniqueness of the island of Korčula as 
a model of sustainable island development. Through an interdisciplinary 
approach, the symposium examines the cultural and geopolitical context of the 
two most significant international gatherings on the island of Korčula, the 
Korčula Summer School (1963 - 1974) and the International Artists' Meetings in 
Vela Luka (1968 - 1972).

Critical thinkers around Praxis magazine and the Korčula summer school 
developed a singular trajectory of humanist Marxism and social analysis in the 
context of socialist, self-management and non-aligned Yugoslavia and created a 
place for the exchange of critical views between East and West in the Cold War 
context. Mislav Žitko analyzes the social antagonisms that were at the centre 
of Praxis philosophy, and Paul Stubbs talks about the Yougoslav context, 
decoloniality and the Non-Aligned Movement.

Ljiljana Kolešnik shows the development of art colonies in Yugoslavia since the 
1950s, and Darko Fritz presents one such colony held in Vela Luka, which was 
originally conceived as a colony of fine artists to work in the medium of 
mosaics, but through the next two editions an interdisciplinary synthesis of 
various artistic disciplines, urban planning, architecture and finally a 
multimedia approach that includes mass media and the participation of the local 
population. Sculptor Ante Marinović, a participant of the International 
Meetings, talks about the Luka mosaic project, as part of which new mosaics 
have been produced and installed in the public space of Vela Luka from 2017 
until today. Part of the symposium is the  discussion  Caring for 20th Century 
Heritage, in which panellists and participants of the project Who Cares? and 
the interested audience, for which free entry is provided. 

Sani Sardelić presents the circumstances of the event 100 years since the birth 
of Bernardo Bernardi, which is being held in pandemic conditions, and a part of 
which is also presented in the City Museum of Korčula. In addition to this 
exhibition, as part of the symposium, Željko Badurina's exhibition Two Sunsets 
 and the VR installation Leonardo's Submarine 
 by the German artist Hito Steyerl will be presented.
The symposium is part of the project Who Cares? which is carried out in 
cooperation with partners from five organizations dedicated to artistic 
production from various parts of Europe: Idensitat (Barcelona, Spain), SPACE 
(London, United Kingdom), Rupert (Vilnius, Lithuania), Grey Area (Korčula, 
Croatia) and Centro Huarte (Navarra, Spain). Partners working on a common 
project to explore new ways in which to engage audiences, incorporating care 
practices in the infrastructure and programs of their respective organisations. 
Who Cares? is led by Centro Huarte as one of the selected projects within the 
European Cooperation Projects 2020 call of the Creative Europe program.
