EXTENDED Panel for SAMLA 94: The Avant-Garde and Social Change

updated: 
Tuesday, July 5, 2022 - 10:15am
SAMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, July 25, 2022

The term avant-garde usually applies to works of art, literature and music characterized by their radical experimentation and opposition to institutionalized culture. Leading unconventional and non-conformist lives, the avant-gardists antagonized the bourgeoise by attacking their social values, mediocrity and material interests. Instead, these iconoclastic artists engaged in acts of dissidence promoted in soirées, manifestos, journals and exhibits that interfered with public life. For instance, Marinetti paraded with the Suffragettes smashing windows through the streets of London, an act that echoes his fervor to destroy museums and academies, as described in the 1909 Futurist Manifesto.

“Critical theory,” Hortense Spillers has written, “witnesses its most impressive moments of efflorescence in times of crisis”. Yet classical critical theory’s analyses of consumer society, of totalitarianism, of the public sphere, and of culture, were predicated on a wholly different set of crises to those which ‘we’ are now experiencing. Under today’s drastically different conditions of cultural and material production, what tools can critical theory offer for grappling with ‘our current moment’?

Let’s Get Digital embraces the timely opportunity to critically reexamine the impacts of digital technology and the barrage of information on our perceptions of reality. Specifically, this panel is focusing on digital art, history, curatorial strategies, critical theory, emergent platforms and forms of creative expression. In bringing together a panel of artists, scholars, and curators we hope to collectively reflect on our present post-internet age, to borrow Byung-Chul Han’s term, ‘the age of like’, and what it means to engage with the digital realm, over half-a-century since its inception.

54th NeMLA Annual Convention, March 23-26, 2023 in Niagara Falls, New York

While representations of disability can be found across creative fields throughout history, their study and sociopolitical implications in society’s popular imaginary only started gaining traction in the 1990s, namely in the United States and United Kingdom. Since then, pioneering scholarly work has paved the way for further critical attention to a reality that has been often instrumentalized to 1) advance ableist notions of “normalcy” through what Sally Chivers and Nicole Markotić (2010) term the “problem body;” and 2) to exclude from the social realm those who deviate from the established able-bodied norms.
