Spring Seminar 2023 · Montage
The Spring Seminar 2023 will discuss montage as a decisive strategy for the arts and for philosophy, from modernity to the present. The use of montage has become a way of breaking with the traditional claim of theoretical completeness or beautiful aesthetic harmony, making it clear that it is more about assembling fragments than totalizing an absolute truth. It opens a different way for conceiving knowledge and political practice.

Read the full text here:

In this context, different proposals and different areas of research and artistic practices are welcome to think about montage in art, criticism, philosophy, curatorship, and culture production in general:
• montage of ideas against totalization of truth;
•  curatorial practice as montage and performativity;
• political implications of montage;
• fragments in art and philosophy;
• different approaches in dialectical thinking;
• unconscious associations in poetry and psychoanalysis;
• collages in painting and arts;
• different montage practices in cinema;
• film essays and other forms of appropriation films in contemporary cinema;
• images and photomontages;
• sound juxtapositions in music;
• montage between different art forms;
• essay as a form in writing or images;
• archive and memory in the historical knowledge of the past.

Submissions should contain the following information:
• Title
• Authors' names, affiliations and contacts
• Abstract, 250-300 words
• 3-5 keywords
• 3-5 references
• Authors' short bio (maximum 100 words)
