“Conflicts – Antagonisms, Agonies, Affects”
The Nordic Society of Aesthetics, Annual Meeting, 2018
May 31 – June 2, 2018, Paris, France
Given the political horizon of the 21st century, an era marked by necropolitics, neoliberalism and ubiquitous computing, we invite scholars to investigate the various aesthetic practices and theories that can be used to explore the tensions, sufferings and modes of experience that are parts of the fabric of everyday reality almost twenty years into the century.
Please, find further information on the topic and on the modes of submission in the attached pdf.

Installation as an interactive experience: a phenomenological and cognitive approach in an interartistic and intercultural perspective. (CFP extended 17 Dec. 2016)

Installation art appeared in the late 1950s in plastic arts, forcing the practice into a new mode, in which the "plastic" (the modeling of the form) was no longer applied to a circumscribed material but to space. The modeling also includes the subjective experience of the viewer that the installation claims to seize "as it emerges" while the visitor walks in or around it. We here call for contributions studying physical or virtual constructions involving the meeting between a wandering subject and a prescriptive space in music, performing arts, film, literature.
