Andrejs Strokins and Deniss Hanovs’ art project is devoted to cultural identities in the space of contemporary Riga and the changes experienced by the city in the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries. Hybrid identities are wide spreadin the Latvian culture-space, yet they are rarely discussed. This discussion will provide an opportunity to hear experts’ opinions on the functioning of cultural hybridities, the challenges posed by cultural indeterminacy to today’s collective identities, and cultural hybridities in contemporary Latvia. The discussion will be moderated by prof. Deniss Hanovs.
