Call for Papers | Beyond the Object: Immaterial Pasts, Immaterial Futures

Tuesday, November 28, 2023 - 1:41pm
Diffractions (Universidade Católica Portuguesa)
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, December 15, 2023

The next issue of Diffractions explores immateriality in artistic and cultural practices as a form of both expression and resistance. For centuries, the histories of artistic practices (as well as historiographies and historicities) have been anchored to materiality and the production of objects. As Michel Claura argues, “[t]he history of art is the history of the technique of art” (1969, 83). Indeed, curatorship as we know it today initially developed around objects and their need of care.
