History Does (Not) Repeat Itself

Veda Popovici, FMST Lecturer 

Veda Popovici's work explores the limits of political imagination.  In this talk, she presents her latest political art project: a mapping of collective dreams and desires of revolutionary events in the context of post-1989 Romania.  Laying out seven radical future pasts, these are stories that could have been but never happened...feminist unions, Eastern European migrants antifacsist organizing, anti-capitalist campaigns, solidarity movements between students and coal miners. 

Based in Bucharest, Veda Popovici holds a PhD in Art History and Theory from the National University of Art.
