In the frame of 'Spaces', the team of curators invited artists to develop interactive projects in Chisinau, Kyiv, Tbilisi and Yerevan, with the aim to enhance civil society processes, reconsidering public space as a place for free expression, social encounter, shared responsibilities. The 'Spaces' interventions dealt with past, present and imagined futures of spaces and cities, succeeded to change the rhythm of the city, made private acts public, irritated - all against the background of the burning question: How far can the citizen get actively involved into current political discourses?0The 'Spaces' conference in Vienna presents and discusses experiences from Tbilisi, Yerevan, Kyiv, Chisinau, and connects them to other parts of Europe and the world. Speakers from the four countries share their experiences and reflections with the audience. The discussion proceeds to looking at the social transformation processes in Europe in general and the positioning of artists in current processes of protest, activism and change.
