Memory, Narrative, History: The Politics of Representation
17-18 November, 2007
Faculty of Art and Architecture
University of Brighton
United Kingdom

The challenge confronting artistic representation after the detour of postmodernism is both
profound and invigorating. What is the role of art in a world of war, terror, and ubiquitous
narcissism? If part of the modernist project was the foregrounding of self-reference and self-
criticism in art, how can this be usefully preserved while re-engaging with the political? Organised
in conjunction with the exhibition, 'William Kentridge: Fragile Identities', this symposium brings
together practitioners, critics, historians, and curators to debate the relationship between artistic
practice and politics in the contemporary world.
