Biennale with Monica Juneja

Jun 03, 2013

Cluster member Prof. Monica Juneja spoke at the Venice Biennale, on “The Loss and Gain of Place. Contemporary Art in a Translocal Perspective”. The 55th International Art Exhibition takes place in Venice, Italy, from June 1 to November 24, 2013.

As an expert on global art history, Prof. Monica Juneja discussed questions that shape the field of contemporary art, focusing on locality and transculturality. With Jörg Scheller, curator of the Salon Suisse, she did query the "burden of representation" ascribed to contemporary art and take a fresh look at the changing role of the biennial as a discursive space. The panel discussion is part of the Venice Biennale 2013, an international art exhibition curated by Massimiliano Gioni.

Prof. Dr. Monica Juneja is Professor of Global Art History at the Cluster "Asia and Europe" since January 2009. She has been Professor at the University of Delhi, India and has held visiting professorial positions at the Universities of Vienna and Hannover. After graduating from the University of Delhi, she did her doctorate at the École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales, Paris. Her areas of research span the fields of European and Indian studies. They include practices of visual representation, the disciplinary trajectories of art history in South Asia and religious identities and cultural practices in early modern South Asia.

The Venice Biennale is a major contemporary art exhibition that takes place once every two years. It was founded in 1895 to establish a new market for contemporary art and has an attendance today of over 370.000 visitors. A total of 155 artists from various countries will participate in this year’s exhibition titled “The Encyclopedic Palace”. The exhibition lasts from June, 1 to November 24, 2013 at the Giardini and at the Arsenale in Venice, Italy. The panel discussion with Prof. Monica Juneja and Jörg Scheller takes place on June 1, 2013 at 11am at the “Palazzo Trevisan degli Ulivi”.
