1. How can we understand autonomy in reference to art in today's context?
2. Is it possible to talk of the avant-garde without Vanguardism; a
conceptualization of political subjectivity which has been understandably been
discredited by historical experience and the failed event of 1917? In what
ways could the avant-garde open possibilities of alternative futures or pose
structures of "life to come?"
3. Are we talking the avant-garde again because of the possibility of a new
political event post-Seattle? What new social subjects have emerged through
this event who could inspire contemporary avant-garde gestures?

A project curated by Thomas Boutoux, Natasa Petresin, François Piron.
