Wissenschaftliches Programm im Rahmen der Ausstellung
„Eigentum verpflichtet. Eine Kunstsammlung auf dem Prüfstand “

Zeppelin Museum Friedrichshafen
4. Mai 2018 → 3. Februar 2019
Seestr. 22
88045 Friedrichshafen

Kuratiert von Fanny Stoye, Provenienzforscherin, und Sabine Mücke, Wissenschaftliche Mitarbeiterin Abteilung Zeppelin

Ist das Raubkunst? Seit Jahren stellen sich Museen diese brisante Frage mit Blick auf ihre Sammlungen und tauchen oft zum ersten Mal tiefer in die eigene Geschichte ein. Auch das Zeppelin Museum arbeitet seit 2016 in detektivischer Forschungsarbeit die bewegten Geschichten der Kunstwerke seiner Sammlung auf: Woher kommen die gotischen Skulpturen, die barocken Malereien und Meisterwerke der Klassischen Moderne? Die Sonderausstellung macht Schicksale von Sammlern sichtbar, von geraubten oder verlagerten Kunstwerken und Hetzaktionen der Nationalsozialisten gegen die Moderne Kunst. Kritisch blickt sie aber auch auf Friedrichshafen und den Bodensee als Rückzugsort ehemaliger NS-Größen und ausgeklügelter Händlernetzwerke zwischen Deutschland, der Schweiz und Österreich.

This is a three-year, EU/UK only funded, full-time PhD scholarship. Collaborating partners: Gasworks, CSNI (The Centre for the Study of the Networked Image) and RCA (Royal College of Art).

The selected candidate will undertake a three-year research project, with either a practice-based or discursive-based methodology, involving situated practice at Gasworks, leading to the submission of a thesis/portfolio submission in 2021.

Project Description

This doctoral research post will consider how artists and curators in art residency programmes are engaging with and being shaped by 21st century global conditions of mobility and communication, by asking how artistic and curatorial practices are interacting with new online networked practices to create transnational networks of global association and diverse collectivities. Centrally the research is keen to explore the potential of new relationships opened up by online art and curatorial practices as well as the deployment of online communication in International partnerships.

The research will bring to light the ways in which networks create new forms of transnational cultural value through a detailed examination of the innovative working relationships between international artists, curators, art organisations working within embedded urban geographies and online. The aim of the research is to support Gasworks achieve a greater understanding of its present practices and to inform Gasworks present trajectory and future strategies.

The objectives of the research are:

  • To critically evaluate Gasworks’ Triangle international art network
  • To work with artists, theorists, curators and technologists on modelling open and cooperative networks for contemporary transnational art
  • To understand the relationship between transnational art practices and contemporary urban culture

Potential questions include:

  • How might online curating relate to Gasworks’ commissioning processes and how could online networks bring new practices to light?
  • What can be learned from Gasworks’ international network of arts organisations as a contribution to the public arts field and how might it impact upon wider public arts policy and practice?
  • What is the significance of London for the growth of contemporary transnational art practices?
  • How is Gasworks’ international art programme relevant to the everyday experience of the city?

CFP: Embodying Value (RSA, Toronto, 17-19 Mar 19)

CFP:  Panel at RSA 2019 (Toronto, 17-19 Mar 19)

Embodying Value: Representing Money in the Early Modern Period

Deadline: July 16, 2018

Joanna Woodall and Natasha Seaman, co-organizers

As media of exchange, coins were essential to trade and economic development in the early modern period. Their double-sided form and the precious materials from which they were made had deep resonance in European culture and beyond. The efficacy of coins depended on faith in their inherent value, yet they were subject to debasement and counterfeiting.  This session seeks papers that explore the signifying potential of money in works of art and how abstract concepts of value intersect with and are figured in material and monetary forms. While the art market may have some relevance to this subject, papers selected will have as their primary focus the particular character of coins and other means of exchange as physical and semiotic entities, money as it appears within images and texts, and how concepts of money and currency can inform our understanding of works of art in this period.
