Call for papers: “What is to be Done? Methodological Challenges to Art Historical Research in Central and Eastern Europe” (Iași, Romania; October 12-13, 2023)

Art and Heritage in Central Europe

The conference “What is to be Done? Methodological Challenges to Art Historical Research in Central and Eastern Europe” organized by the Institute for Multidisciplinary Research in the Arts of the National University of the Arts, Iasi, in collaboration with AVU Prague, KEMKI Budapest and the University of Łódź, proposes an open forum for art historians, curators and art theorists interested in Central and Eastern Europe, as well as in wider topics such as art histories of the Global South. They welcome proposals which reevaluate art historical methodologies employed in the region so far and address urgent research topics, methodologies, and challenges to the discipline as a result of the transformations that occurred within past decades.

They welcome contributions for the following panel topics, covering the period from 1945 to the present:

– Revisiting socialist art: state-supported institutions, exhibitions, and global networks.

– Interconnectedness and mobility: artists’ networks, circulation, transference, and exchange.

– Social art history in a socialist context: Marxism, anti-politics and artistic labor.

– Critical art history today: race, gender and decoloniality in Eastern Europe.

– Curating and other forms of collective art historical engagement.

If you are interested to participate in the conference please send a 300 words proposal (including a title and an abstract of your presentation) in relation to one of the panel topics proposed above, accompanied by a brief CV of no more than 200 words to: icma@unage.ro. To leave ample time for discussions, they encourage presentation proposals of no more than 20 minutes. The deadline for submitting presentation proposals is June 26, 2023. Coffee breaks, lunch and dinner are free for all participants.

Keynote speakers: Jérôme Bazin, University of Paris-Est Créteil  and Edit András, The Institute of Art History of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences/Central European University, Budapest.
