Verein K and Belvedere 21 are happy to announce a second edition of Crit Cross. A Forum on Art Criticism!
Crit Cross is a reading and discussion group of current critical writing about art and society. It has the aim to create a platform for the sustainable promotion of art- and sociocritical dialogue as well as art-related topics in Vienna. Meetings take place every two months in Vienna.
The two texts for Crit Cross #2 are:
— Let’s be clear: «We are at war» by Mohammad Salemy
