Looking East: Contemporary Art From Eastern Europe
(Screenings: 2.30 to 3pm & 6 to 6.30pm / Panel Debate: 3 to 6 pm)

As two more former-Communist states join the European Union from the East, this debate addresses that question of how artists are negotiating the changes in their political identities in the context of their regional political history, and how those identities are received by the older members of the club.
