Mobility of Imagination is a new book by Dr. Dragan Klaic. Below we provide a book synopsis and information about the author. Courtesy of Dr. Klaic and the publisher.
International cultural cooperation has been traditionally conceived of as a matter for national governments and of national cultural and foreign policy, and not from either a broad European perspective or from the point of view of cultural operators themselves. This book offers them the basic instruments with which to pursue their border crossing interests, a systematic approach to international projects as a developmental strategy and a perspective that surpasses the restraints of the national cultural systems while recognizing their specifics and divergence. Bridging Eastern and Western Europe, the author demonstrates how international cultural cooperation creates an integrated European cultural space and contributes to an emerging European citizenship. This book is aimed at both beginning and experienced cultural operators and private and public decision makers.
Dragan Klaic, a Permanent Fellow of Felix Meritis in Amsterdam, teaches arts and cultural policies at Leiden University, and has held professorships in Belgrade, Budapest, Amsterdam and the US. He led Theater Instituut Nederland, co-founded the European Theater Quarterly Euromaske, and presided over the European cultural networks ENICPA and EFAH. Recent books include an exile memoir, Exercises in Exile, in Dutch and Croatian (2004 and 2006), and Europe as a Cultural Project (Amsterdam: ECF 2005).
