CFP: Collaborations in Modern and Postmodern Visual Art, 27-28 May 2010 (Monash University Prato Centre, Prato, Italy)

Janine Burke/Monash University

Collaboration has fostered ground-breaking innovations in the visual arts during the 20th and 21st centuries. This symposium focuses on the dynamics of reciprocal exchanges and collaborative experiments by modern and postmodern artists. How might we situate creative partnership within its social and historical contexts, discursive and ideological frames, and the 'instabilities' of gender? What new methodologies can we bring to the study of artistic collaboration? In addressing these questions, this symposium seeks to shed light on both creative co-operation and politicized critiques of traditional models of authorship.

German Graduate Studies Conference

An die Freude:
Approaching "happiness" in German contexts

February 26-28, 2010

We have all heard of "the pursuit of
happiness", "all's well that ends well", and "Shiny Happy
People". Happiness is treated as an allegedly on-demand commodity,
but in our age of financial and environmental crises, it seems
increasingly out of reach. What do we mean when we speak about
happiness? Does it exist? Or is it merely a word, a metaphor for an
ineffable desire?
