BEYOND VISUALITY:
Art, Science, and Global Studies

Arts Santa Mònica | April 25, 2009 | Barcelona
______________________________________________________________________

Under the title Beyond Visuality: Art, Science, Criticism and Global Studies, the third annual symposium will consider interdisciplinary issues such as the recent attempt to restore the Universal History (of Art) and the proliferation of concepts such as ‘World Art’ and ‘Global Art’ within the academic fieldwork. The idea of creating an overall account of the multiple histories of art and the idea of universalizing aesthetic values through the discourse of the postmodern are thus the main ingredients of these debates. Starting from the perception that we are in the midst of a general epistemological crisis that affects not only the art practice and critical thinking as such but also its cultural institutions in a post-national level, this symposium will test the actuality of art history (as a Western institution) and the new global designs of critical thought.
