Festvortrag "Regioning Differences: Translation and Transcuration"


Festvortrag von Emily Apter - in englischer Sprache

The remapping of cartographies of knowledge and the reorientation of genealogies of comparison, all have been fully underway for quite some time in critical and curatorial practice. But it may be time to focus in an even more pointed way on translational issues as they affect the designation of regional entities and identities and in turn, define how geotopic regionalisms -. Europe/non-Europe,  intra-Asia, North/South, South-South, tricontinentalism, zones of settlement and unsettlement – are negotiated by artists in their work or by curators designing exhibitions with a “global” remit.
