As the lead-in event of the thematic lecture and discussion series The Third Degree, curated by Lukas Feireiss and Markus Miessen, on the subject of migration and space, the Spanish Embassy Berlin and the Aedes Network Campus Berlin invites to a public lecture and accompanying discussion with Bassam el Barroni (Egypt) and Jeremy Beaudry (USA), curators of the Manifesta 8, the European Biennial for Contemporary Art, Spain.
From October 2010 to January 2011 the 8th edition of the Manifesta, located in the Spanish cities of Murcia and Cartagena, will explore the idea of Europe in the 21st century in dialogue with Northern Africa. More specifically, the aim of Manifesta 8 is to engage with Europe's present-day frontiers and its interrelation with the Maghreb region. Against this backdrop, the historical blend of Islamic, Judaic and Christian influences co-existing together in the South of Spain, acts an inspirational ground on which the next Manifesta 8 explores new topologies and journeys.
Lecture and debate is in English language. Please confirm your attendance to mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org. As audience capacity is limited, places will be allocated on a first-reply-first-serve basis.
