Colonial pressures and “our kind”
“Artlabyerevan” collective organised a seminar discussion in the frames of the project “The possibility of the impossible choice” on the subject “Colonial Pressures and “Our Kind”.
The speaker of the seminar was writer, publicist, candidate of philological sciences Vahram Martirosyan. The discussion was moderated by art critic Vardan Jaloyan.
The seminar discussion took place in Gyumri, in the hall provided by “Berlin art hotel” on February 12. 
Armenia is under various forms of colonial pressures. One of them is the Russian one as “inertia” of the priority rights of a former empire and the Soviet Union: Russia is trying to dictate its will to post-Soviet countries.
The other one is the globalisation, through which western – American and European standards are spread. 
What does “the Armenian kind” mean under these challenges from the point of view of historic and modern realities?
