Network on Art Production and Global Migration

Dec 06, 2013

A new network on "Art production and art theory in the context of global migration" has been founded in Munich. Among its members are Prof. Christiane Brosius and Cathrine Bublatzky from the Chair of Visual and Media Anthropology.

At the first meeting of the newly founded network in November at the University of Munich, about 25 scholars from various disciplines of art history and anthropology spoke about the role of globalization and migration for artistic production. Among other aspects was of particular interest how experiences of exile or diaspora visualise in artistic production from medieval times until today. The scholars discussed thereby also the role of different visual forms including photography, textiles or urban art in different cultural contexts. In the future, the network plans further activities such as workshops, conferences as well as publications. Cathrine Bublatzky from the Chair of Visual and Media Anthropology at the Cluster "Asia and Europe" participated in the meeting. The Chair, held by Prof. Christiane Brosius, will be actively involved in the network’s activities.

The network was initiated by Prof. Dr. Burcu Dogramaci (University of Munich), Prof. Dr. Birgit Mersmann (Jacobs University Bremen) and Prof. Dr. Alexandra Karentzos (TU Darmstadt) under the aegis of the Ulmer Verein für Kunst und Kulturwissenschaften.
