Baltic Triennial 14 focused on the geopolitical territory of Central and Eastern Europe, premised on the conviction that in a paradoxical time of fragmented integration, addressing the local is, simultaneously, to question the global. This reader contains a number of texts touching upon the definitions, histories, potentials, and futures of the region which is understood as having a composite, porous constitution and transnational connections.
The region’s gravitational pull is further highlighted by the introduction or anticipation of numerous tensions, such as disinformation, human-made industrial disasters, nativist nationalism, and the oppression of non normative identities.
Staged before the eruption of Russia'a invasion of Ukraine in February 2022, the Triennial took its title from Vannevar Bush via Eglė Rindzevičiūtė’s essay on cultural wars “Transforming Cultural Policy in Eastern Europe: The Endless Frontier” (2021).
In addition to the texts, this reader includes photo documentation and information from exhibitions and events that were presented across the city of Vilnius: at the Contemporary Art Centre, Atletika, Autarkia, Editorial, Lithuanian Artistis’ Association, Rupert (hosted by Tech Arts) and Swallow.
Texts by Aleksei Borisionok and Olia Sosnovskaya, Michał Grzegorzek, Valentinas Klimašauskas, Kęstutis Kuizinas, João Laia, Michal Novotný, Zane Onckule, andBorbála Soós. Graphic design by Nerijus Rimkus
