The international conference “A neoliberal counter-revolution? Cultural Imaginaries, Political Subjectivities and New World Order (1979 – 2019)” will take place on 16 and 17 September 2021 at MACBA. Responding to the reflections developed in the framework of the research projects Decentralised Modernitie(s) and Fossil Aesthetics, this international conference asks about the role that cultural imaginaries have played in the shaping of neoliberal subjectivity during the period from 1970 to 2019.
On January 8 at the Universitat de Barcelona, this seminar aims to reflect on the various ways, themes and forms through which contemporary artists are representing the recent past and its effects.
The reports aim to document the discussions that took place during MoDe(s) activities, as well as being an useful complement to the recording of the events that can be found in the multimedia section.
This seminar, organized as part of the exhibition “Picasso au cœur des ténèbres (1939-1945)” (Musée de Grenoble), will focus on Picasso’s production through the prism of his relations with anti-fascist networks, as well as on the dialogues between a culture of resistance and the visual production of the Spanish artist.
The workshop was conceived as a space in which to promote and plan the work of researchers in the framework of the project MoDe(s) 2. One of the main objectives of the project is to draw up a glossary of concepts that allow us to understand the cultural tensions that are going through the Cold War and that continue to reverberate in contemporary times.
Planned for 18 and 19 July at the Complutense University of Madrid, this research workshop is intended as a space for work and dialogue between the members of the MoDe(s)2 project. It is open to the public (excepted the 19th afternoon session).
The research project MoDe(s)-Decentralized Modernities: Art, Politics and Counterculture in the Transatlantic Axis during the Cold War is continuing with its second phase: MoDe(s)2 (2018-2020). MoDe(s)2 incorporates new themes and focuses of attention, new team members, and has already an exciting program of upcoming activities. Have a look at them!
The workshop of MoDe(s) 2 ” Critical imaginaries and expanded semantic fields from the Cold War to contemporaneity”, held in Robledo de Chavela (July 16-18, 2018), had as objective to lay the basis of the research project for the next three years. It was, therefore, an internal workshop where we presented the research topics that will be developed in this second phase.
