Inquirers is a series of lectures, readings and conversations organized in order to have a look at the ongoing research of Lithuanian contemporary art. Conceived as such, it is concerned, first of all, with processual nature of insights and hovering-like state of hypothesis put forward by both academia-related and independent researchers. In this sense, Inquirers is interested in the very process of contemporary art research and, in turn, the challenges it produce: the nowness of the objects of inquiry; the problem of naming, generalizing, and guessing when it comes to artistic tendencies; and, at last, the necessity of yet again novel theoretical approach. Inquirers will draw attention, in an attempt to emphasize its processual origins, to both focus and results of the research, and the omnipresent significance of the conversation to analyze this always already changing scene of contemporary art.
The first series of the Inquirers include Dovilė Tumpytė (Vilnius Academy of Arts), Giedrius Gulbinas (Vilnius Academy of Arts) and dr. Lina Michelkevičė.
