    Glimpses of cosmopolitanism in the hospitality of art
    PAPASTERGIADIS, NIKOS ( 2006-08)
    In a video by the artist’s collective Stalker, a man points to a lake and claims it as his spiritual home. Following the man’s gesture Stalker identified the lake as being in Macedonia. No one can deny this man his Macedonian identity. However, after the ruins of a grand but short-lived empire, where is Macedonia? Or, rather, which State can claim to be the inheritor of the Macedonian heritage? These questions unsettled the conventional categories for identifying the location of scenes in a video that was part of a trans-national project called Via Egnatia.

Modernism, as the cultural representation of modernity, promised to break from traditions that restricted creativity and embrace the spirit of progress.

    Glimpses of cosmpolitanism in the hospitality of art
    PAPASTERGIADIS, NIKOS (Sage Publications, 2006-08)
    Cosmopolitanism has been used as a concept to open the horizons for being in the world. This article re-thinks the philosophical and political dimensions of cosmopolitanism by relating them to the new collaborative practices by artists and the debates on the end of multiculturalism. The concepts of agency and community will be grounded in a critical examination of the networking strategies and the practice of hospitality that have been cultivated by artistic collectives such as Stalker. The aim of this article is to ‘rescue’ the account of artistic practice from the extreme version of quasi-mystical universalism and dogmatic political activism. It also seeks to argue that the abstract principles of cosmopolitanism are in a dialogue with the multicultural practices of everyday life.
