[UPDATE - NEW DATE] Forgotten Bodies: Identities, Practices and Representations - PG Conference 9th APRIL 2010

Forgotten Bodies: Identities, Practices and Representations
Friday 9th April 2010

Forgotten Bodies will provide a forum in which postgraduate researchers can explore often overlooked discourses, representations and practices relating to embodiment, sexuality and gender. Previous research into this field has often urged overly simplistic hegemonic models of practices, desires and identities, which this conference hopes to reassess. Our main objective is to explore the challenges of not only researching, including but also re-positioning so-called 'forgotten bodies' in academic programmes.

When museum turns into theatre: the culture of display between conservatism and production_Abstract: September, 1st, 2010.

It was as early as 1920, while collecting his famous essays in a book – Vision and Design – that was to exert a huge impact on the Western artistic culture to come, that Roger Fry postulated his famous theory of the importance of form over content in the modern work of art. While form addressed a system of perception that was basically sensorial, content was directed to a "restricted", logical and cognitive system. It was in this context that Fry mentioned with nonchalance a new kind of display aimed at altering the museum system as a whole.

Death and its rites in contemporary art & culture

A critical reflection on the contemporary forms of artistic, literary and cultural expressions reveals an ever-growing difficulty in coming to terms with death: death understood as the end of the body, as absence, as total loss, as a break that cannot be mended within any spiritual framework. From a sociological point of view, this seems to have produced an array of highly diversified attempts to 'fill in' this ideal blank outside the reach of traditional symbolic forms.
