Advantages of membership

The constant exchange rests upon the upload of archival material, your own papers, topic-related essays etc. into our own database; the use of the database, as well as the networking of colleagues interested in the same academic fields. Members of the online community will be kept updated on the latest achievements in the research of actionism and intermedia art in the parallel culture of the Central-East-European countries. The platform www.2ndpublic.org is the first virtual collective that communicates and investigates the event-based art formats during and beyond Communism in the Eastern and Central European area.

As mentioned above, all members will have (password-protected) access to the database of www.2ndpublic.org, the contents of which should be used fairly and serve academic purposes.
