Call for Papers | Perspective: actualité en histoire de l’art – ‘Destroying’

The next issue of the journal Perspective: actualité en histoire de l’art will focus on the theme “destroying”. It will open the exploration to all fields concerned by this notion that transcends geographical, historical and cultural boundaries. In the artistic field, the destruction concerns just as much the reception as the creation of the art. This call for contribution intends to create a set of proposals exploring the proposed theme in its widest range, from monuments and architectural production (“communist monuments”, etc.) to images (icons, etc.), including objects (readymades, self-destructive machines of Jean Tinguely, etc.), even the performances (Les “Colères” d’Arman”, etc.). Perspective wishes to privilege diachronic studies with multiple forms and stakes. The proposals could go from the synthetic article focusing on a particular point of the theme (25,000 signs) to the historiographical assessment of a geographical territory, a singular…

Call for Papers | Liberalism and the Built Environment – Then and Now | University of Queensland, May 2018

University of Queensland, Brisbane, 17-18 May 2018 Conference convenors: Janina Gosseye, Helena Mattsson, John Macarthur, Deborah van der Plaat This conference seeks to explore how concepts of freedom and liberal political and economic theories have intersected with architecture and the built environment from the nineteenth century to the present day.  The popular reaction against ‘neoliberalism’ understood as an economic structure has reignited academic debate as to whether architecture, bound up as it is in real estate speculation and the financing of building, has a capacity for critique. The present socio-political circumstances of architecture, however, ought to be understood in the longer and more varied history of liberalism and architecture’s imbrication with political and economic thought on freedom and the subjects of freedom. We seek contributions that might address, but need not be limited to: nineteenth-century constructions of citizenship in civic…

Call for Papers | The Art Residency in Context

While art residencies are often used as experimental sites for cultural exchange and social engagement, and sometimes also as “laboratories” for ecology or cooperation between art and sciences, their relevance has also been questioned due to the infinitely overlapping, global and seemingly inconsequential political territory they inhabit. For our next issue, we invite contributors from diverse disciplines to submit essays and reviews that discuss the global phenomenon of the art residency from a high variety of possible angles, including (not restricted to): The political meaning of cooperation in art residencies as international forms of cultural exchange. Types of residencies; themes, formats and ways of organizing residencies; their public programmes, exhibitions and events. The idea of “site” and of local political and cultural interaction in art residencies. Art residencies in context: art, geopolitics and neoliberalism. The relationship between residencies and local…

Natures and Spaces of Enlightenment – The David Nichol Smith Seminar in Eighteenth-Century Studies XVI The Conference of the Australian and New Zealand Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies Griffith University and the University of Queensland | Brisbane, Australia |13-15 December 2017 Keynote Speakers: Deidre Lynch (Harvard University), Jan Golinski (University of New Hampshire), Georgia Cowart (Case Western Reserve University), Sujit Sivasundaram (University of Cambridge) Website: https://anzsecs.com/conference/dnsxvi/ A preoccupation with the idea and use of ‘nature’ was an important characteristic of the Enlightenment.  Long considered a pivotal moment in the development of modernity, the Enlightenment is now also regarded as a turning point in the emergence of the Anthropocene, as new conceptions of the relationship between human society and the natural world influenced all manner of discourses and practices, from politics to aesthetics, theology to botany, gardening to pet-keeping, and industrial production to colonial governance. But the meanings and purposes of…
