Entitled Freedom in the Bush of Ghosts, the conference gathers artists and historians who examine the ideological echoes of the Cold War in the present day. The speakers will discuss the politics of meaning-production between propaganda and subversion and the historical compromises of the postwar era.

With Alessandro Balteo-Yazbeck, Kodwo Eshun, Andrea Giunta, Angela Harutyunyan, Nataša Ilić, Alexander Keefe, Jaleh Mansoor, Museum of American Art in Berlin and many others
