River School: Danube Currents*
Popper Room
Central European University, Budapest
6-8.30pm, 4 October 2013

With presentations by Ilona Nemeth, Michal Hvorecky and Cili Lohász,
Introduced by Alan Watt and Maja and Reuben Fowkes

Danube Currents is an interdisciplinary overture to the river that 
examines its transformative power for writers, artists and activists 
both today and at critical, system-changing moments of the recent past. 
In contrast to conventional approaches that stress the geo-political 
significance and cultural heritage of the fluvial region, the focus of 
this gathering is on personal and collective interactions with the river 
and its environmental history, current initiatives to reconnect with the 
Danube through contemporary lifestyles and explorations of the currents 
of artistic experimentation that flow across borders. This seminar is a 
preface to a year-long series of floating workshops, migrating 
exhibitions and research symposia of the River School organised by the 
Translocal Institute and taking place in Bratislava, Budapest and Bucharest.

Danube Currents is organised in cooperation with the Centre for Arts and 
Culture and the Department of Environmental Science and Policy at CEU.
