Conversation in Swedish about criticism and critical practioners.
Vilka är de viktiga frågorna för dagens och framtidens kritiska praktiker?

Syftet är inte att finna gemensamma positioner, utan snarare att identifiera givande beröringspunkter och friktioner som kan lägga grunden för samarbeten och utbyten mellan individer, initiativ, föreningar, rörelser och institutioner.
Bjuder in gör c.off och Fria seminariet i litterär kritik(FSL) tillsammans med Konstfrämjandet Stockholm och ABF Stockholm.
