April 7-9, 2016
Not simply a blank, [image here] functions as a placeholder—a formatted but unpopulated space. A page under construction, a refusal to show or be shown, an empty frame. Marking what is indicated but not given, [image here] simultaneously exposes and withdraws from the logic of representation.
This conference seeks to elaborate the turn to non-representation in recent philosophy, media theory, art, and related fields. We invite contributions that trace non-representational strategies––in theory and practice––across history, media, and disciplines.
