Art, politics and counterculture in the transatlantic axis from the Cold War to contemporaneity
Decentralized Modernities is an international research platform that brings together researchers from different centres in Europe, South and North America. In its current configuration, it develops two main lines of work. The first focuses on a comparative analysis of centres of the Atlantic axis, emphasising the forms of mediation, negotiation and resistance to the ideological, aesthetic and cultural schism of the Cold War. The second studies the impact that (social, cultural and political) forms from this historical period still have today, both on the configuration of the realities of our present time and on current artistic practices.
The idea is to highlight the links between the artistic/cultural world and social and labour, as well as national liberation and counter-cultural movements that conveyed dissident responses to the Cold War’s geopolitical order, contributing to decentralize the normative, western and colonial modernity.
This research workshop 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.
From Geopolitics to Geoaesthetics. The Challenges of the Spatial Turn, or Debates for a Transnational Art History
The objective of this workshop is to examine and compare the methodological and theoretical approaches that propose to think space and place through the lens of art history and aesthetics. And those, which propose to think art history and aesthetics through the lens of space and place.
This seminar proposes a space to discuss and problematize the current Puerto Rican cultural panorama considering the conditions of its institutions and cultural projects.
