In the first part of her lecture, Katarina Šević; presents a selection of her art works, - projects which explore questions of collective heritage, storytelling, and expanded notions of the past and present. The second part of the lecture is based on her publication “We are not ducks on a pond, but ships at sea” (Independent Art Initiatives, Budapest 1989-2009) and deals with the role of the independent art space, publishing, and the influence of different political settings.
