CONF: The Formation and Development of New Markets (London, 30-31 May 19)

Royal Academy London and School of the Arts, Kingston University, May 30- 31, 2019. Registration deadline: May 28, 2019.

Tools for the Future: The Formation and Development of New Markets

As the art market in Europe has developed, there have been many instances where new areas of collecting have emerged onto the market, very often reaching record-breaking prices. This workshop focuses on examples of this type of new market, whether in the primary or secondary sector, the aim being to analyse and understand the mechanisms by which a particular ‘product’ enters the market, gains authority and thus becomes collectable. In studying the evolution of these markets, the complex relationships between the different agents interacting with each other to create, support and sustain the taste or fashion for these works provide evidence of how art markets function, whether today or in the past. Papers examine the processes by which new markets are validated and question whether this is a necessary part of acceptance and stability, or whether in the contemporary art market, this is no longer necessary; another question that links past and present markets is the question of investment and whether it a factor in creating new markets. Underpinning many of these questions lies the issue of information and how important is accessibility to that information in the market.

CONF: What’s Missing? Collecting and Exhibiting Europe, 26-28 June, Berlin

On the occasion of its 20th birthday the MEK – Museum Europäischer Kulturen – Staatliche Museen zu Berlin hosts the conference “What’s Missing? Collecting and Exhibiting Europe”. The conference focuses on blank spots: Which objects, narratives, methods and actors have not been paid any (or enough) attention to and are missing in our museum reflections on contemporary daily lives and societies in Europe? Numerous European collections and museums with objects of everyday life are going through processes of transformation – from historical folklore, national and sometimes ethnically oriented to contemporary, European and transculturally designed institutions. In this process, the historical collections are both a blessing and a curse: They form the basis of existence for these museum types – but the collections themselves and/or their ‘traditional’ narrative framings do not sufficiently represent current social developments or complex pasts. How can these museums adequately account for new sociopolitical contexts, especially against the background of present theoretical debates, which conceptualize things, actors, spaces and routes as closely entangled? In addition, the political “European project” is being increasingly called into question and conflicting ideas about European identity/identities and cultural heritage are being strongly communicated in many arenas. What social role do museums – and especially the (former) folklore museums – want to play in these debates of Europe in transition? How can a reinterpretation and contemporization of collections and exhibitions through (post-)migratory, queer, decolonial, fugitive, dis/abled or other marginalized lenses be established in mainstream museum work?
