A conversation about the necessity and possibility of belonging
What does belonging to a community and language group mean?
What constitutes a sense of belonging and what complications can it create?
And how do necessity and impossibility arise?
Participants in the conversation about the necessity and possibility of belonging: documentarian Andrejs Strokin, philosopher and publicist Igors Gubenko, social anthropologist Inguna Potetinova, set designer Kristina Rezviha, architect of peace-building and conflict resolution processes, conversation moderator Ilze Dzenovska.
Current world events, which also resonate in our society, encourage us to return to the stories of individuals and the possible mutual dialogue between different people, communities and places, therefore, in the summer of 2022, the Institute of Latvian New Theater approached photographer and documentarian Andrejs Strokinas to participate in the residency of the “MagiC Carpets” project and to research and document an issue or topic of interest in more depth.
