Critical concepts and semantic turns from neoliberalism to the Cold War
17 – 18 December 2020
Webinar – Université Grenoble Alpes
This research workshop gives continuity to the workshops Critical Imaginaries and Expanded Semantic Fields from the Cold War to Contemporary #1 and #2 and is proposed as a space of working and dialogue between the members of the MoDe(s)2 project.
Throughout the workshop, we will discuss concepts that will allow us to understand the cultural tensions that are present in the Cold War and that continue to reverberate in the contemporary world. We will analyze not only concepts (solidarity, work, entropy, subjectivity, archiving or biennialization) that are significant for understanding contemporaneity and the processes linked to the Cold War, but also the artistic practices related to them. Likewise, through a transnational analysis, the semantic changes and turning points of these concepts will be discussed, which will allow to highlight historical and political conjunctures at a global level.
