In the summer of 2014 the exhibition was hosted by the National Gallery of Art in Vilnius.
Artists, participating in the exhibition, are: Eglė Karpavičiūtė (LT), Petra Elena Köhle / Nicolas Vermot Petit-Outhenin (CH), Laurent Kropf (CH), Paulis Liepa (LV), Dainius Liškevičius (LT), Lutz&Guggisberg (CH), Marge Monko (EE), Katrīna Neiburga (LV), Sandrine Pelletier (CH), Liina Siib (EE).

“Counterhegemony: Think Laboratory” is a three-day unofficial school of the “Counterhegemony: Art in a Social Context NIDA Fellowship Program,” with talks, performances, & discussions, a culmination of the Counterhegemony program’s exploration of politics of participatory spectatorship, art & law, and Foucault’s notion of geneaology.
In the vein of Brazilian educator Paulo Freire, seminal thinker of the critical pedagogy movement, “Counterhegemony: Think Laboratory” is a non-hierarchical platform for ideas that rejects the traditional hierarchy between speaker and audience. Each plenary is presented as a provisional “proposition” to be responded to by the audience: We invite the public of Contemporary Art Centre, Vilnius (Vokiečių str. 2) to participate in our 3-day think tank as we brainstorm to foster a critical vocabulary and new ways of engaging with the issue of counterhegemonic discourse, art, cultural production and activism: 3 DAYS FOR 10 PROPOSITIONS. The event will happen in CAC Reading room (Vokieciu str. 2, Vilnius, Lithuania).

If science is a fairytale that is hard to disbelieve (Bruno Latour), then scientific research is nothing but scripting fiction. What’s more, the latter is the domain of art. Be it truthful deceit, legitimate hocus-pocus, or real fiction, such a story requires a great deal of creativity and knowledge in carrying out such a persuasion. The persuasion will be carried out at the residencies, inaugural courses and opening forum of the Nida Doctoral School by artists, curators, professors (featuring Anthony Dunne, Timothy Ingold and Fiona Raby, among others) and doctoral students.
