Call For Participants: Memory and Borders: Examining Nationalism and Identity Through Material Culture

 

Borders, their effect and their history, have become a recurring theme of global politics today; Brexit and the border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland, diplomatic negotiations between North and South Korea and the history of the Berlin wall are examples of stories that have occupied discourse on the concept of borders. While nations may be a modern geopolitical category, their physical demarcations have had significant influence on the formation of memory and identity. Thus, to what extent are our shared or individual memories shaped or limited by borders? How do geopolitical boundaries influence a sense of national identity? What is the legacy of a national ‘border’?

This is a call for participants to engage in a workshop discussing memory and borders. Its purpose is to encourage cross-disciplinary discourse on the theme of memory and borders. Students, academics, designers, artists, philosophers, writers, journalists, filmmakers, thinkers and creators will come together to foster a conversation concerning the idea of the ‘border’ as a material or ideological barrier or impasse and the impact that these borders have on individual and collective memory. We will discuss ideas around the theme of “Memory and Borders” through material cultures, in a discursive format that includes work and research (-in progress) presentations, and round-table discussions. Abstracts of work, and work in progress can be based on, but not limited to, the following themes:

  • National identity and memory
  • Conflict and memory
  • Violence and trauma in memory
  • Material culture and memory
  • Materiality of borders
  • Nationalism, fracture, independence, identity and divisions through objects
  • Gerrymandering and democracy

    Please send a (maximum) 150-word abstract to memoryandborders@gmail.com by 17:00 on December 15, 2018.

    This event will be held on February 11, 2019 at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, UK. Participants that will be selected to present will be compensated for travel (from within London).

    This event will be made possible with the generous help of the Design History Society Outreach & Events Grant.

Contemporary Art in the Heritage Experience Conference 2019

 

In recent decades, contemporary art commissioning has become a key aspect of heritage site programming with national organisations and individual sites investing in artists as a way of developing new opportunities for public engagement with heritage. For many artists, temporary commissions for heritage properties is an increasingly important strand of their practice. Yet despite significant developments, and organisational support from the arts and heritage sectors, there is little understanding of the contemporary arts in heritage field.

Contemporary Art in the Heritage Experience is a two day conference (29-30 July 2019), delivered as a critical part of ‘Mapping Contemporary Art in the Heritage Experience’ (MCAHE). It provides a platform to discuss the broader character of contemporary art in heritage and the impact of such projects on their producers and audiences, sharing knowledge of this practice across the sector for those engaged in or wishing to develop this area of practice. The conference is focused on the key themes of Creation and Encounters, and we invite papers, presentations and ‘visual or audio formats’ (such as posters and short films) from artists, curators, heritage professionals, academics, researchers and research students. All presentation formats to be a MAXIMUM of 20 minutes in length. We particularly invite submissions which explore the following themes and topics:

Creation theme – The challenges, motivations and experiences of creating contemporary art works for a heritage context. Reflections on the impact of such projects on artistic and curatorial practice.

Encounters theme – Encountering contemporary art in heritage: impact on visitors, host organisation, staff and volunteers.
