    Crossing French Metropolises: Exiled Artists and Intellectuals during the 20th century

    Following “Arrival Cities: Migrating Artists and New Metropolitan Topographies”, the first conference of the ERC research project Relocating Modernism: Global Metropolises, Modern Art and Exile (METROMOD) held at the LMU Munich in November/December 2018, a workshop will be organized at the German Center for Art History (DFK Paris), on 4 July 2019. Building on common interests of the DFK Paris and METROMOD—such as movements of artists, ideas and productions—this workshop will focus on the temporary exile of artists and intellectuals in French cities throughout the twentieth century, which was marked by (e)migration waves. Located at the crossroads of disciplines such as Art History, Exile Studies, History of Sociology, Architecture and Urban Studies, this topic calls for a transdisciplinary approach.

    Images of Cambodia, myth, history and memory

    Au moment de la commémoration des quarante ans du génocide cambodgien, le 17 avril 2015, il est nécessaire de témoigner, par des manifestations culturelles et scientifiques, de la survivance et de la créativité d’un pays qui a connu l’élimination de masse et la destruction d’une communauté artistique. La reconstruction politique, économique et culturelle du Cambodge est difficile ; dans ce contexte dramatique, les artistes ont joué un rôle essentiel, en particulier par un travail de transmission des arts traditionnels à la nouvelle génération. Mais les jeunes artistes cambodgiens sont en quête de renouvellement ; en questionnant le passé, ils cherchent aujourd’hui à comprendre la complexité de notre époque et à relever les défis de la mondialisation. En plaçant la question de l’histoire et la brisure identitaire au cœur de leur réflexion ils agissent pour contrer son effacement. Au cours de ce colloque, il s’agira d’interroger successivement les mythes et les survivances des ruines d’Angkor, les processus mémoriels, ainsi que les formes visuelles qui se créent aujourd’hui au Cambodge.
