Being a border: Performing the transnational

Noit Banai
Art Sciences and Art Education, Art History
2020S, scientific seminar (SEW), 4.0 ECTS, 2.0 semester hours, course number S03289

Description

What does it mean to “be a border” and how can this condition help us consider diverse trans-nationalisms in modernity and contemporaneity? This seminar explores practices, histories, theories, and discourses in which borders and trans-nationalisms are created, performed, negotiated, transgressed, maintained, and re-imagined. What is the relationship between the constitution of borders and the nation state and how can we think through the possibilities of various trans-nationalisms via diverse performative iterations of “being a border” ?  Approaching these questions via discussions of artworks, seminal texts, and exhibition visits, we will bring to the fore the tensions between dominant and minoritarian artistic practices, art historical paradigms, and modes of subjectivization and their negotiation at specific historical moments.

Readings will be interdisciplinary and include texts from gender studies, postcolonial and migration studies, political science, philosophy, litterature, geography, and other disciplines. Syllabus will be shared on first day of class.
