Watch this fascinating keynote by Bojana Piškur at MoDes on her research and curatorial practice around cultural politics and the role art and culture within the Non-Aligned Movement.
The Non-Aligned Movement is an international coalition of states. The organisation was formed in 1961 with only 25 small to medium sized states from the Global South, with a shared endeavour against imperialism, colonialism, and racism. They cooperated – without being officially aligned – in their collective agreement not to support either the main capitalist nor the major socialist powers during the Cold War, aiming instead for a third way.
