International Circulation of Art and Artists

Tuesday, 17 July 2018: 15:30-17:20
RC37 Sociology of Arts (host committee)

Language: English

The recent historiography of ideas lays bare the difficulty in explaining it development through methodological nationalism. The current session revisits this approach and suggests going over the national sociologies of art and stories with the regional and intercontinental flows and transfers which nurtures them. This mobility presents different modalities. On the part of actors, travels, epistolary exchanges, exiles, political reasons, among others. On the part of the debates, styles, and currents of thought, we may observe journals, institutions and networks outside of the art world which, in many cases, function as a vehicle for these transfers. We predict/support the presentation of empirical studies that examine the transnational dimension in the creation, valuation, circulation and recognition of arts.
