FRAMING TRANSCULTURAL VISUALITY
Anthropology, Visual Culture, Postcolonial Critique

Arts Santa Mònica | February 24, 2007 | Barcelona
______________________________________________________________________

Despite the fact that this symposium takes into account the fruitful (but also confusing) discussion regarding the interdisciplinar study of visual cultures ―that has risen in part due to the conflicts between art history and the institutionalization of visual studies, its goals are more closely related to the interplays between visuality, current global processes and transcultural negotiations. The epistemological debate that arose around the idea of Universal (Art) History and the questionable existence of global art, will therefore be re-framed during these talks within postcolonial critique of global visual designs. By reconsidering visual studies from the point of view of the transcultural arena, VC/GD aims to deactivate the common belief that cultures and subjects are inside of a geopolitical network situated beyond the global conflict defined by Aníbal Quijano as the ‘coloniality of power’.
