EFAP and beyond


The New European Bauhaus and the creative KIC EIT Culture & Creativity have substantial impact on the conditions for artistic and practice based research. One thing is for sure: Advanced practices in art and culture seem to get recognised as potentially relevant contributions to a knowledge production that responds to societal challenges. Over the past four years our COST Action 18136 EFAP has followed these developments closely and (self-)critically. 

Now it is time to draw first conclusions. Join us for the final event in Tabakalera in San Sebastian, on September 7 and 8, 2023! Don’t miss out on the telematic live performance by Chicks on Speed x UKRAiNATV on September 8, at 20.00! 

The public program features contributions by: Clara Montero and Florian Schneider, James Livesey and Koen Brams, Irit Rogoff and Oier Etxeberria, Miguel Ángel Herrera Gutiérrez and Andrea Phillips, Teresa Muela Tudela and Juan Carlos Abascal, Marta Materska-Samek and Kenan Zekić, Georg Russegger and Joe Lockwood, Sanne Kofod Olsen and Stefan Winter, Ines Moreira and Rom Dziadkiewicz, among many others.
