Argument

Bringing together Swedish, Italian, Polish, Czech and French researchers, this international conference will explore located trajectories of European cultural institutions, such as theatres, operas, and museums. From the analysis of case studies to the descriptions of historical and cultural policies, the debates will be organized around four core themes.

The first theme (Institutions as processes - anthropological and historical descriptive frameworks) will open a double discussion on the nature and the history of what the common language identifies as "institutions of culture". We will first start from an anthropological description of these institutions to delineate their modular perimeter. Implemented in various temporal and procedural dynamics, these institutions are subsumed by performative symbolic frameworks that embody and singularize their entity - the “spirit” of these institutions. We will deepen these descriptions with insights from history (mainly Italian’s nineteenth century) in order to describe the transformative patterns of these institutions as well as the various social and cultural settings they have implemented.

The second theme of the conference (Case studies - France and Sweden) will stop on some case studies (Marseille, France – Umeå, Sweden) that will give the opportunity to highlight the progresses of our CURRICULA program (January 2015 – June 2016, Midterm of the program).

The afternoon will open with a third moment of reflection (Comparative perspectives with varying spectrum, small vs. large scale) devoted to relationships and comparisons between institutions

belonging to diversified territorial and cultural contexts. These institutions will be replaced in urban settings in which they were, and are implemented. Two opposite dimensions will be at the heart of our exchanges: the social, cultural and physical territories of institutions and the topography of cultural venues drawn by their audiences in different clusters of associated or paired institutions.

The last part of the conference will focus on legal frameworks and arts policies that guide the contemporary destinies of theatres, operas and museums in Europe (Policies of European institutions of culture). We will describe the bottom-up movements through which these policies are taking shape in the very narrow and often ambivalent dialogue they have with national and European authorities (especially within the framework of European Capitals of Culture).
