During this session, Stefan Wagner will summarize Artur Żmijewski's text "Applied Social Arts". To make Żmijewski's artistic practice more transparent, there will also be a screening of "Two Monuments" (2009, 14 min 35 sec, English subtitles) and a discussion about the 7. Berlin Biennale, in which Żmijewski has been invited. The Berlin Biennale, that Żmijewski co-curated with Joanna Warsza and activist group Voina, has had a wide media presence after a project from the Czech artist Martin Zet.
