Presentation by Elpida Karaba at the First International Conference 'Critical Cartography of Art and Visuality in the Global Age'
On 26th and 27th April 2013 Outset Greece will support the presentation of 'Art of resistance: Archiving the crisis, claiming the future', a paper by curator and art theorist Elpida Karaba at the First International Conference Critical Cartography of Art and Visuality in the Global Age.
The conference is co-organised by The Art, Globalization, Interculturality Research Group (AGI) and the University of Barcelona, Department of Art History. The conference will be hosted by the University of Barcelona and the Museum of Contemporary Art (MACBA). The conference aims to engage with the complexities of the new status of art and visuality in contemporary art practice in the context of 'globalization'. Focusing on the paradigms of identity, alterity, memory, locality and interculturality, as well as on new ways of understanding the political, ecological, technological, economical and scientific dimensions of the current age, the conference seeks to locate the topos from which each of these paradigms forges links between theoretical concepts and innovative work methodologies.
