'Art Against War and Fascism in the 20th and 21st Centuries.' In Warszaw a two day Conference is organizing forces against the revival of fascism in Poland.

The Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw invites to the "Never Again" conference, organized as part the exhibition of the same title presented at the Museum on the Vistula.

The conference will take place at the Museum on Pańska and will consist of two parts:

"Art Against War and Fascism in the 20th and 21st Centuries" – Thursday, October 24.
Invited art historians will examine relations between art and antifascism in the 1930s and 50s, following the structure of the exhibition, through specific works and artistic movements. We will also host a roundtable among directors of the seven institutions making up the L’Internationale confederation of European museums, taking up the topic of the social mission of cultural institutions and their duty to society in times of tension and political polarization in Europe..

"Internationalism After the End of Globalization" – Friday and Saturday, October 25–26.
The summit will play the dual role of a conference and a self-organized assembly. The delegates will try to develop theoretical and practical responses to the current crisis, which calls for new modes of connecting on an international scale to challenge the neoliberalism, the revival of the fascist tendencies and ecological disaster, seeking forms of artistic internationalism embedded in the ongoing democratic struggle for climate, economic, gender and racial justice.
