Accumulations, Sediments, Dispersals: Artworks in Transit

  • 31 March 2017 10:00–19:00 Universität für angewandte Kunst in Wien, Wien, Österreich (AIL – ANGEWANDTE INNOVATION LABORATORY)

General Text

This workshop addresses the mobility of artworks: the tensions between their movement across borders, nations, cultures and formats, as well as their mobilizing effects in aesthetic, political, social and economic realms. While post-mediality and digitalization suggest limitless fluidity across formats and geographies, effortless transmission and reception, these views are contested by postcolonial perspectives that call attention to the lingering unequal distribution of (material and immaterial) resources, and by the ongoing institutional and economical valorization of artworks as objects tied to their material substance.
