In order to engage with the international scientific community and promote the use of (digital) quantitative and spatial tools to renew art history,  Artl@s organizes workshops, roundtables, and international conferences.

Cross-border connectivity in Nordic–Baltic Art in the late 19th and 20th centuries

17-18 May 2021, Paris, Swedish Institute.

This symposium explores a new and critical Nordic–Baltic research front on cross-border relations and the artistic connectivity of the Nordic–Baltic realm and relations to European neighbours, in the late 19th and 20th centuries.

Cet atelier doctoral, organisé dans le cadre du programme doctoral de MoDe(s) en collaboration avec Artl@s et la Chaire des Humanités Numériques de l’Université de Genève (UNIGE), propose de partager et de débattre ensemble autour d’une série de ressources méthodologiques et théoriques liées à l’étude des pratiques culturelles et intellectuelles de la Guerre Froide à la contemporanéité, et à leurs croisements avec différents contextes sociopolitiques dans une perspective transnationale et géohistorique. Les propositions débattues dans le cadre de ce séminaire se situent dans le domaine de l’histoire de l’art ; cependant, elles sont ouvertes à d’autres disciplines telles que les études culturelles et visuelles, l’esthétique, l’histoire contemporaine, les sciences politiques, et tout particulièrement dans ce cas, la géographie et les approches cartographiques.

The new Spatial (Digital) art history therefore participates in the redefinition of the discipline of art history by embracing the theories and methods of the Spatial, Global, and Digital Turns that have challenged humanities over the past decades. But in what directions is this Spatial (Digital) approach taking the discipline? What are its connections with past and current developments in geography, social sciences, and critical theory? What kind of new findings and new interpretations does it achieve?

Creating a place for peripheries has been one of the main issues of a global approach to art as it has developed over the past twenty years. In the legacy of postcolonial studies in particular, a global approach encourages revisiting a story whose margins have been too long forgotten or disregarded and devalued. Studies on non-Western regions have thus, since the 1990s, grown remarkably, especially in Central European and South American art. This renewal also leads to renewed disputes over museum collections.

Demie-journée d’études organisée en partenariat avec l’université de Paris-Ouest-Nanterre La Défense.

Is art history global enough to take up the challenge of cultural mixing, transnationalism, internationalism, and globalization, without neglecting cultural nationalisms and artistic territorialization processes, which are the fabric of our discipline? How do we understand the relationships between circulations, globalizations, and the production of ethnicity or nationality in the arts? What strategies can we develop, besides narration and description, to write a new history of the arts that escapes both historiographical nationalism and blind globalism, while paying due to the national and transnational dimensions of artistic creation?

 

The official launching of ARTL@S, with a presentation of the team, program, tools, and methodological choices. We will discuss two central questions to our work: is a long-term, transnational history of culture possible? And what is the quantitative and cartographical approach to the “Spatial Turn” in the human sciences?
