Student Blog: TIAMSA Conference 2018 – Roundtable discussion – ‘The Art Market and the Internet’ by Lukas Fuchs

Following the inaugural TIAMSA conference in London in 2017, TIAMSA members met in Vienna, an equally rich city in art and culture, in late September 2018, for the second TIAMSA conference provocatively titled “ART FOR THE PEOPLE? QUESTIONING THE DEMOCRATIZATION OF THE ART MARKET”

The first of the three conference locations were the halls of Vienna’s annual contemporary art fair – viennacontemporary, which hosted TIAMSA’s opening public lecture “The Art Market and the Internet”. The Roundtable discussion featured five distinguished panellists: Marek Claassen (Founder and CEO, ArtFacts.Net), Kristina Kulakova (Head of Digital and PR, viennacontemporary), Sophie Neuendorf (Vice President – Strategic Partnerships, artnet Worldwide Corp.), Olav Velthuis (Professor of Sociology, University of Amsterdam/ TIAMSA President), and Johannes Nathan (Chair of TIAMSA / Co-founder of the Centre for Art Market Studies, TU Berlin).

Since the rise of the internet its impact on our society has grown to such an extent in recent years that it is hard to imagine a life without it. The music and film industries, for example, have been revolutionised by streaming services – so what is the situation in art, especially in the art market, and what changes are still ahead of us?

Submit a session proposal for CAA 2020 in Chicago

TIAMSA ‘Share and Connect’ workshop on data modelling in art market studies, CAA, New York, 15 February 2019

TIAMSA organized a number of memorable events at the past CAA conference (12-15 February 2019 in New York), notably a fascinating session on „The Studio as Market Place” chaired by Julie Codell, a very productive workshop on data modelling in art market studies chaired by Sandra van Ginhoven and Clarissa Ricci, and a wonderful reception very kindly hosted by Christie’s Education! (See our ‘Past Events’ Page for more information: https://www.artmarketstudies.org/events-calendar/past-events/ )

The CAA 2020 conference will be held in Chicago (12-15 Feb 2020, Hilton Chicago) and we are already planning our attendance there. As a CAA affiliated society, TIAMSA is entitled to one full academic session (1.5 hours) and one „business meeting“ (1 hour). Following this year’s successful formula, we intend to use the latter as a workshop for the discussion of a specific topic proposed by a TIAMSA member.

If you would like to propose a subject

– for the 1.5 hour academic session
or
– for the 1 hour workshop

please send us a title, a very brief CV and a short abstract (3-4 sentences) outlining your idea by 31 March 2019 to office@artmarketstudies.org. The TIAMSA Board will then select the most promising proposal, bearing in mind not only academic excellence but also a proposal’s potential interest to our members and visitors of the conference.

Applicants will be informed about the board’s decision in April.

Unfortunately, we will not be able to provide travel grants; however, you may apply for travel grants through the CAA.

We would be very happy to hear from members interested in chairing a session!

With best wishes,
Veronika, Johannes and Nirmalie

CFP: Recycling Luxury Conference, Friday 5th July 2019, Christie’s, London

Deadline: 1 March 2019

The concept of luxury is associated with ideas of excess (luxus) or even worse immodesty (luxure). An infamous example involving Cleopatra dissolving a priceless pearl and swallowing it encapsulates some common associations between luxury and immorality, or luxury as intrinsically linked to the idea of waste.

CFP: “In the Shadow of the Habsburg Empire?” Moravian Gallery, Brno, September 12 – 14, 2019

In the Shadow of the Habsburg Empire? Art and Culture in Interwar Central Europe
Deadline: May 1, 2019

The First World War is often held to have brought about not merely political and social disruption, but also a profound caesura in artistic and cultural life. Nowhere was this more evident than in Austria-Hungary, where Vienna and Budapest lost their pre-eminent status as cultural capitals, and the creation of new states transformed the political and artistic status of cities such as Prague, Brno, Salzburg and Košice. The disruption to artistic life was dramatically symbolised in the deaths in 1918 of some of the leading figures of pre-war modernism: Otto Wagner, Gustav Klimt, Bohumil Kubišta and Egon Schiele.

Post-war nostalgia for the Habsburg Empire amongst writers such as Joseph Roth, Stefan Zweig and Miklós Bánffy is well known and, as Marjorie Perloff has suggested, the collapse of Austria-Hungary left its imprint on what might be termed a specific ‘austro-modernism.’ But what was the impact of the events of 1918 on the visual arts? How did artists, designers and architects negotiate the changed terrain of the post-war social and political world? To what extent did the memory of the Habsburg Empire continue to shape artistic life? To what extent did artists and architects actively seek to consign it to oblivion?

As part of the ERC-funded project “Continuity / Rupture? Art and Architecture in Central Europe 1918-1939” (https://craace.com) this conference examines the ways in which the visual arts shaped and were shaped by new aesthetic, political and ideological currents, with particular reference to Austria, Hungary and Czechoslovakia.

Proposals (300 words) are invited for 30-minute papers that examine topics such as:

1. Cultural memory of the Habsburg Empire
2. Formation and reformation of the avant-gardes
3. Exile and migration
4. The destruction, creation and renewal of artistic networks
5. The art market, galleries, museums and other institutions of the art world
6. Artistic, architectural and broader cultural policies of the new states

Confirmed keynote speakers are: Pieter Judson (EUI, Florence); Eve Blau (Harvard University); Milena Bartlová (Academy of Art and Design, Prague) and Enikő Róka (Kiscelli Museum, Budapest).

The deadline for submission of proposals is Wednesday 1 May 2019. Submissions should be sent to: craace1918@outlook.com
