Don’t hesitate to read, share and answer to the Call for Papers for the project “Through, From, To Latin America: Networks, circulations and artistic transits from the 1960s to the present”, conceived as an international conference and a set of workshops in the field of curating, artistic practice and art history.
The University of Barcelona, Saint Louis University (Madrid) and the Universidad Autonoma de Madrid invite doctoral students in art history or related disciplines to participate in a doctoral seminar/workshop Cold Atlantic. Cultural War, Dissident Artistic Practices, Networks and Contact Zones at the Time of the Iron Curtain.
The international conference Cold Atlantic seeks to highlight the transatlantic exchanges between North America, Europe, Africa and Latin America bringing into the fore other hubs of artistic exchange and influence, aiming not just to de-center the Paris-New York axis, but also to foster a discussion that gives a voice to cultural expressions that were generated outside the official power structures.
