Summary

The Autohistorias symposium will be a moment of reflec­tion regarding the role of arts insti­tu­tions in a world tor­mented by nation­alist polar­iza­tions, a world shat­tered by new bor­ders and debates on iden­tity that fur­ther sep­a­rate indi­vid­uals from one another. Autohistorias will con­vene about 40 pro­fes­sionals engaged in re-writing art his­tory.

Argument

The Autohistorias symposium will be a moment of reflec­tion regarding the role of arts insti­tu­tions in a world tor­mented by nation­alist polar­iza­tions, a world shat­tered by new bor­ders and debates on iden­tity that fur­ther sep­a­rate indi­vid­uals from one another. Autohistorias will con­vene about 40 pro­fes­sionals engaged in re-writing art his­tory. We will elab­o­rate col­lec­tively a new shared narrative, building on a mul­ti­plicity of artistic forums (art spaces, schools, col­lec­tives, or events) and indi­vidual itineraries, focusing on artists who nav­i­gated through sev­eral cul­tures and intel­lec­tual spheres over the 20th and 21st cen­turies. Together, we will look into how insti­tu­tions and museums can best embody this diver­sity, while devel­oping research pro­grams and working jointly with a variety of civil society actors. We will ques­tion the pro­duc­tion, clas­si­fi­ca­tion, and dis­sem­i­na­tion of her­itage, archives, and museum col­lec­tions. Experimenting with teaching and knowl­edge trans­mis­sion, Autohistorias will shape a space amenable to inventing utopias and alter­na­tive ways of life.

This sym­po­sium is part of the 40th anniver­sary of the Centre Pompidou. It is the high­light of debates and dis­cus­sions that occurred in the con­text of the Autohistorias pro­gram that has been deployed in our two sites of activity; Bétonsalon – Center for Art and Research and Villa Vassilieff, over the course of 2017.

This event is spon­sored by the Ministère de la Culture et de la Communication and by ADAGP Society of the Authors of Graphic and Plastic Arts. The ADAGP man­ages the rights of authors working in the field of visual arts (painters, sculp­tors, pho­tog­ra­phers, draughtsmen, archi­tects, ...) and ded­i­cates part of the fees col­lected for pri­vate copying to the cre­ation and dis­sem­i­na­tion of works.
