Conference in Salzburg, 11–12 August 2018

Hildegund Amanshauser

Registration deadline: 3 August 2018

For the past several years, the Salzburg International Summer Academy of Fine Arts has been leading the Global Academy project – which focuses on questions of learning and teaching art in a global context.

This year’s Global Academy II presentations reveal new models of transcultural artistic exchange, delving into the above questions and the many ways they can be answered or at least readdressed. They focus on the key notions of “translation” and “negotiation”, and speculate on how art and artistic practice can maintain or gain broader relevance under current economic, geopolitical, and even technological conditions.
