A significant characteristic of artistic movements is the reconfiguration,
adaptation and transformation of texts. The focus of this conference is
the appropriation and conversion of existing artistic works for use in a
contemporary vogue. This ambition to â€˜make it newâ€™ in tandem with the
politics and intentions behind the transformation has led to the emergence
of startling works of contemporary art.
