at the Museum of the City of Skopje in organization of Suzana Milevska,
curator and theorist from Macedonia.

24   January 
morning session 
first topic: Capital, Information and Difference
The problem of the proliferation of money and information is influencing the concept  of
sexual differentiation in the countries where the social issues of
equality and difference in the past fifty years were structured
differently than in the Western countries.

second topic: Real Art/Virtual Money
The question of art that is socially and politically engaged becomes a very delicate  issue
in the context where the art market does not exist and the financial
problems shape the art concepts directly.
