The round table and public interview are the part of the project Let's 
Talk Critic Art (2009-2010), which examinees the critical aspects of 
contemporary arts (round tables, public interviews), documents them, and 
archives them (online documentation, publication).

The project is conducted by the cultural portal SEEcult.org (Serbia) 
with the partners SCCA-Ljubljana / Artservis (Slovenia), Kulturpunkt 
(Croatia), and Forum Skopje (Macedonia).

The partners are the members of the informal network of cultural portals

collaboration in the former Yugoslavia countries.

The project Let's Talk Critic Art is financially supported by European
