Reflecting on changing conditions in 2020

From end of May 2020, Lokomotive (North Macedonia) shared each day of the week a self-recorded video interview with cultural workers, artists, critics, civil society activists from around the world. This resulted in a series of 32 video interviews that are now available on Lokomotiva's youtube channel.

As Lokomotiva puts it: "facing these unpredictable times and our already fragile position in society, we found ourselves in need of urgent reflection with our colleagues, partners and friends."

Lokomotiva decided to extend and dedicate part of its 2020 programme “Contemporary Culture and Cultural Policies” to reflection on the changing conditions brought about by the actual pandemic situation, which affected programmes, working conditions, international collaborations, artistic production, production of knowledge, etc.

Read more about the series here, and take a bit of time for each video.
