The following podcast took place on October 30, 2011, on the occasion of the exhibition Voices from the Center at threewalls gallery in Chicago, October 28 – December 10, 2011. The exhibition is an extension of a series of interviews with those living in Eastern Europe about life during and after communism by artist and curator Janeil Engelstad, beginning in 2006. This multi-tiered project takes the form of an interactive web platform (www.voicesfromthecenter.net), as well as public events. This exhibition, the first iteration in the United States, gathers the work of Engelstad and artists Grafixpol (Poland), Oto Hudec (Slovakia/Portugal), Magda Stanová (Slovakia), Miklós Surányi (Hungary), Matej Vakula (Slovakia), and Tehnica Schweiz (Hungary). Their works respond to the original interviews, as well as impart the artists’ own reflections on the imprint of communism in their respective countries. With the exception of Gergely László and Péter Rákos of the collaborative Technica Schweiz, and Kasia Worpus-Wronska of the design team Grafixpol, this interview, conducted by Susan Snodgrass, includes Engelstad and the artists of the exhibition.
