Art and Power School

International Workshop

The Art and Power School is part of the Project Art and Power: Decolonizing Art History, which addresses the need to identify and analyze visual regimes and to critically reflect on the construction of power as a strategy of social dominance.

The Art and Power School promotes an interregional exchange on the concepts of art and power, encouraging intensive peer-to-peer debates and fostering new perspectives that emerge from group work. Fourteen participants will present their research projects and discuss with the audience and the professors the concepts, instruments, and impact of today’s art historical research on art and power via case studies based on the main topic decolonization: selected objects/artifacts from Antiquity to Contemporary Latin America and Europe under decolonized perspective, questions of provenance and restitution, curatorial strategies and decolonization.
