The panel discussion with artist and curator Auksė Petrulienė, researcher and curator Agnė Bagdžiūnaitė, and union organiser and writer Jurgis Valiukevičius explores questions around narrating working class histories in the post-Soviet context. The conversation departs from the example of Lithuania: Petrulienė, Bagdžiūnaitė and Valiukevičius have interviewed former factory workers about their experiences during the late Soviet era, the perestroika and the transition period. The research has been made public in the form of exhibitions and writings.

The discussion is a follow-up event in the webinar series ‘Learning from Alexandra Kollontai’ which started in spring 2021. The conversations about the life and work of Alexandra Kollontai led us to ask about the relative absence of a working class subject in contemporary art, dominant historical narratives and activist discourses, and to highlight perspectives that address issues around social class.

The online event will consist of three presentations followed by discussion.
