Cathrine Bublatzky new speaker of the interdisciplinary working group ‘Art Production and Art Theory in the Age of Global Migration’

Apr 22, 2016

Cathrine Bublatzky, research fellow and assistant at the Chair of Visual and Media Anthropology, was elected speaker of the interdisciplinary working group ‘Art Production and Art Theory in the Age of Global Migration’ for a period of two years.

Together with her colleagues Prof. Burcu Dogramaci (LMU, Munich) and Prof. Kerstin Pinther (LMU, Munich), Cathrine Bublatzky will guide the activities of the group (e.g. workshops, conferences and related publications) with a major responsibility for public relations and communication.

The working group ‘Art Production and Art Theory in the Age of Global Migration‘, is affiliated to and supported by the Ulmer Association for Art- and Cultural Sciences and was initiated by the art historians Prof. Birgit Mersmann (Cologne University) and Prof. Burcu Dogramaci in 2013. It strives to explore what the interaction between migration and globalization as the most significant phenomena of social transformation in the 20th and 21st century mean for art research, curatorial theory and practice, as well as artistic production.

In this spirit Cathrine Bublatzky organised together with Christiane Brosius the workshop ‘Border Crossings: Migration Arts and Arts of Migration’ at the Heidelberg Center for Transcultural Studies (HCTS) with the support of the Cluster project ‘Net1 Arts and the Transcultural’ in January 2016. The workshop simultaneously presents the 5th meeting of the working group ‘Art Production and Art Theory in Context of Global Migration’.
