Colliding Discourses
4th – 21st august, 2011, Art Center, Samara.

Colliding Discourses addresses the course and results of discourses colliding, for instance between and within nations, between Art and the Law, the view on sex or how history is written. The rate of discourses colliding increases with the improving speed of globalization. What happens when discourses come into conflict? What discourses prevail?
