Reports – Decentralized Modernities 2

The research project MoDe(s)2 – Decentralized Modernities: Art, Politics and Counterculture in the Transatlantic Axis during the Cold War (part 2) (HAR2017-82755-P) is now in its second phase. MoDe(s)2 is inscribed in the continuity of the first phase MoDe(s) (HAR2014-53834-P) and incorporate new themes and focuses of attention. Among them, MoDe(s)2 proposes to analyze the contribution of the arts in the configuration of multiple collective consciousnesses, to establish a vocabulary of concepts that analyses the semantic turns of artistic and cultural language shaped during the Cold War and still in force today, and  to evaluate the role of contemporary artistic and curatorial practices in the critical narration of the social, political, economic and cultural legacies of the Cold War.

Among the news from MoDe(s)2 we should mention the reports on congresses, seminars, workshops and exhibitions that are organized by MoDe(s)2. The reports aim to document the discussions that took place during these activities, as well as being an useful complement to the recording of the events that can be found in the multimedia section.
