8 October, 6.30 p.m., Ikon Gallery, Birmingham, UK (admission free)
A round-table discussion with artists participating in the Overcoming Dictatorships exhibition will be held at the internationally renowned Ikon Gallery, Birmingham, UK on 8 October, 6.30 p.m. (admission free). Chaired by the Ikon curator Nigel Prince, it will focus on up-and-coming contemporary art groups in post-Communist countries and draw parallels with the situation immediately after 1989, when the former underground art replaced the official.
Participating artists in the round-table discussion:
German photographer Harald Hauswald (www.harald-hauswald.de),
Venice-based painter Silvestro Lodi (www.studiotredici.it),
Romanian artist Vlad Nanca (www.vladnanca.blogspot.com), and
the Hungarian artist Sándor Pinczehelyi.
