Programme 2018
 

This panel engages in a conversation on art that embodies crisis and loss by moving beyond the hegemonic taxonomies of space, place and belonging. The first paper focuses on missing and dispossessed artworks from the late Ottoman Empire and the early Turkish Republic. Asking what kind of loss missing artworks engender, it works against the impulse of recovery aiming instead to contemplate divergent economies of remembering and forgetting. The second paper focuses on instantiations of contemporary art which address (un)belonging and displacement. It seeks to think the resistant potential of artistic performances embodying tropes of gendered, sexualized, ethnicized and racialized vulnerability.
