The leaders of working groups in four focus areas (Muriel Blaive: “the Culture of Surveillance”; Piotr
: “Culture in the Grey Zone”; Katalin Cseh-Varga and Rolf Werenskjold: “Alternative Cultures”; and Tamás Scheibner: “the Cultural Memory of Dissent”) will present the findings of an 18-month self-study which led to this report. Our curatorial team will also be represented by Ieva Astahovska, who will share their contribution to the report: a survey of critical exhibition practices on oppositional and alternative culture. Finally, the project’s leaders (Maciej Maryl and Piotr
