INTERNATIONAL SEMINARARTWORKS & LANDMARKS Contemporary Arts Practice & Contexts
June – July 2014
The Seminar Artworks & landmarks intends to approach the cross-disciplinary/inter-media practices of contemporary artworks, with the intention to breakdown its boundaries by studying and interrogating its cultural contexts rather than its disciplinary practices.
Artworks & Landmarks are the two main subjects that inform and frame the activities, discourse and development process of the Seminar.
The overall objective of the seminar is to invite a small group of participants to question and expand the notion of contemporary art practices related to the concept of displacement in different cultural contexts of the Mediterranean area. The program is based on applied artistic fieldwork research throughout a mobility period in the rural area of Tahanout (Marrakesh, Morocco), Barcelona (Spain) and Marseille (France).
The Seminar also provides a critical framework for contemporary practice that is concerned more with ideas of process, mobility, flow, displacement and transmission, than with form, object, materials, and techniques. Therefore its program seeks to provide an understanding that can reflect, position, or map the shifting role of artwork in contemporary culture.
