This one-day conference is dedicated to the theory of avant-garde and contemporary art practices. The following question blocks will be discussed during the conference:

1. The role of the concept of avant-garde, the duality of art's resistance to mass production and its participation in social life
2. The role of art in the new age of institutional criticism and art's relationship with the audience.
3. Theory's influence and the issue of bringing back or initiating a new stage of theorizing on avant-garde tendencies.
