REWRITING ART HISTORY?
Difference, Globalization, and Knowledge Production

Arts Santa Mònica | March 5, 2011 | Barcelona
______________________________________________________________________

The debate proposed for the fifth edition of VC/GD focuses on the way in which current globalization has questioned, reinvented or disrupted the discourse of cultural difference. Thus, the ambiguities and false universalism of so-called ‘feminisms’ and ‘post-feminism’ will be the starting point of this symposium. As we will try to bring over the table, the South-South dialogue and the diversification of traditional forms of knowledge production have produced a radical epistemic turn. Diverse disciplines (including geography, anthropology, sociology, art history, among others) and certain fields of study (such as visual, identity, production/reproduction of culture) have been drastically questioned by this epistemic shift. How does feminist art history deals with intersectionality? How can we articulate at a global scale claims made by divergent movements such as chicano feminism, ‘black feminism’, Caribbean feminism, feminism of the multitudes, etcetera, without appealing for universality nor perpetuating the Eurocentric liberal feminism? Finally, as Angela Dimitrakaki has pointed out, Is it possible to reactivate the project of a feminist and materialist method addressed to the art world in particular and to the global production of knowledge in general?
