We are preparing international conference in Prague
November 10–11, 2022
This international conference is part of the Resonances project and reflects the spread of a new art-history discipline called ”Exhibition Histories”, which is a field of academic research that has been in existence for several decades. Its title is partly inspired by the book Networking the Bloc: Experimental Art in Eastern Europe 1965–1981, in which Klara Kemp-Welch examines the relationships that existed between artists in Eastern Europe and focuses on certain places where these actors networked and clashed on common platforms. It also draws on the five-year research of the VVP Research Centre of the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague, which focused on the history of exhibitions in Czech art from 1957 to 1999. The research was based on institutional and personal archives, magazines from that period and many other documents of these fleeting events. The findings are presented in the comprehensive publication by Pavlína Morganová – Terezie Nekvindová – Dagmar Svatošová, Výstava jako médium. České umění 1957–1999 [The Exhibition as Medium. Czech Art 1957–1999], Academy of Fine Arts, Prague 2020.
