Description Artists participating in New Europe '99 discuss their work, specifically addressing the identity of ethnically diverse artists and their audiences. This roundtable will focus on how the communities and mixing of cultures in the New Europe are reflected in the performances they create and vice versa, and also address the politics of space. To be explored are common threads in the artists' work, such as memory, telling secret stories, and art and technology.
