Art(ist)s in Resistance (Universités du Mans et d'Angers 7-8 November 2019)

Conference

This conference aims to investigate various paths of resistance in the arts, promoting comparative approaches that may help us identify similar strategies and preoccupations in different countries. Among the questions the conference will address are: What makes a work of art political? What is the proper role of scholarship in relation to activist art? Do certain modes of audience receptivity/readership offer meaningful models of political resistance? Are individual acts of artistic or creative resistance relevant to large-scale social and political movements? How are movements like Black Lives Matter and #MeToo reflected in contemporary works of art? Are political works from earlier historical time periods relevant to contemporary political struggles?

 

Proposals are accepted until May 5, 2019.
