Raimundas Malašauskas is a Lithuanian curator based in Brussels, who has co-written an opera libretto, produced a television show, and served as an agent for dOCUMENTA (13). In his keynote lecture ‘What spills, Malašauskas will discuss feelings, moments and correspondences emerging from the year 2016, as reflected in his projects of the upcoming year.

Malašauskas asks, ‘Will the projects generate new and more satisfying modes of connecting, relating and feeling? Will I continue to know as much through art as previously?’

In February 2017, Raimundas Malašauskas will curate the two-day event, On Campus, as part of Monash University Museum of Art’s international guest curator series. Malašauskas’s visit is supported by Monash University Museum of Art and Monash Art Design and Architecture.

The papers span a broad spectrum of research and practice, but share an attention to some of the most vital  and  compelling  aspects  of contemporary life and culture.
