[Nettime-nl] Gimme Shelter

Dear all,

GIMME SHELTER. Global Discourses in Aesthetics

Conference organised by the International Association for Aesthetics,
Dutch Aesthetics Federation and Nederlands Genootschap voor Esthetica.

University of Amsterdam, October 8, 9 and 10, 2009

Globalisation resounds throughout the land. But is there a possibility
for a creative redescription of that concept? How do art practices and
aesthetic experiences change in response to it? Is there a meaning of
‘the global’ that cannot be reduced to unification? There is a
tendency to seek shelter in the supposed stability of traditionally
defined identities and beliefs. But isn’t there a necessity and a
possibility for shelter in a legitimate way?

Keynote speakers are Ruth Sonderegger (“On what the global art market
neglects and why it is everywhere”), Heinz Kimmerle (“How different
is the art of different cultures?”), Kitty Zijlmans (“Contemporary
art as a school of world art studies: when academia meets art”) and
Patricia Pisters (“Violence and laughter: The paradoxes of nomadic
aesthetics in contemporary screen culture”). There is a Round Table
about the recently published book: “Intercultural Aesthetics”.
