Paradox Fine Art European Forum
9th–11th September 2015 at The University of Arts in Poznań, Poland
Alternative Zones: Uncovering the Official and the Unofficial in Fine Art Practice, Research and Education
The 2015 Paradox European Forum conference will look at the ways in which art practice and the education of artists negotiate official historical and contemporary narratives. Drawing on alternative practices it will examine the ways in which art can counter public and accepted structures. Exploring moments when art is used to resist and subvert, this conference aims to evolve strategies for future art practice, pedagogy and androgogy.
Three strands will be convened to examine these issues from different perspectives; from within the educational institution, in the artist’s social engagement and through the agency of performance.
