starting November 2018
of the working group Art Production and Art Theory in the Age of Global Migration
“Entangled Histories of Art and Migration” sets out to conduct research on the interrelationship of migration and globalization as an important phenomenon of social transformation in the 20th and 21st centuries and on its role for art historical research and artistic production. Over the next three years, it will enhance the research on migration with art-historical perspectives and methodologies.
With this concept and the choice of the two equal locations Athens and Kassel, the international curatorial team led by Adam Szymczyk deepened the critical approaches of earlier documenta editions as well as it expanded the narrowed view of the art production and art theory in the wake of global migration by a non-Eurocentric perspective.
