L'associazione culturale Kuda.org mette in rete alcuni importanti documenti prodotti nel corso del Festival in Opposition-Art and Politics of Improvisation, tenuto dal 26 al 29 ottobre dello scorso anno presso il CK13 di Novi Sad (Serbia). Ci sono tra gli altri gli interventi di Stevan Kovacs Tickmayer a proposito di Ernö Királya, Howard Slater sulla Scratch Orchestra, e Chris Cutler con una conferenza sul tema dello studio di registrazione come strumento di composizione - analizzando in particolare il lavoro di Art Bears per Winter Songs - e con una rivisitazione del suo testo File Under Popular (1984) in occasione della sua recente traduzione in serbo-croato (Pod oznakom popularno) a cura della stessa Kuda.org.

Kuda.org is an independent cultural organization which since 2001 brings together artists, theoreticians, media activists, researchers and the wider public in the research of contemporary art theory and practice, cultural policies, activism and politics. kuda.org tends to make an intervention in the sphere of research and artistic and social experimentation within the field of art and cultural production, from the position of institutional critique and critique of cultural policies. Facing processes of cultural industries and culturalization of politics and art, the collective attempts to map and encourage acts of critique and resistance to comodification of results of art production including attempts of transformation and critique of relations of production which are in the field of art production and outer-art social processes being reproduced through shifts of ideological and „political“ matrixes, which are in the last instance consequence of recuperation of people. kuda.org creates platform for an open dialogue, experimental education, collaboration and research, and open access to different knowledge resources. Within kuda.org, there have been organized several hundreds public events: lectures and presentations of visiting artists and theorists, workshops, exhibitions, conferences and international publishing project.
