The Journal of Global Studies and Contemporary Art is an indexed journal and an open access publication focusing on visuality, contemporary artistic practice, and intercultural conflict through a global perspective. It is associated to the Art, Globalization, Interculturality (AGI) research group at the Department of Art History, University of Barcelona.

Recently critical theories and contemporary artistic practices use the concept of “visual translation” in the process of transmission and reception of contemporary art. The interest in translation, from a transcultural and global perspective, has brought about new approaches to historical artefacts in art history research, leading to an ever-increasing dissolution of boundaries between the various disciplines of art history. Many theories bring Art History, Political Philosophy, Visual Studies, and Translation Studies together to shape a new methodology. Nevertheless, the concept of translation has been articulated as a hermeneutical means to understand the complexity of contemporary works of art in which text and image coexist. It is also true that recent intuitions – especially coming from world art theorists – aimed to establish connections between arts and translation. Yet within critic theory there has never been a concrete research work with the purpose to identify the status quaestionis of a long-time neglected but crucial topic: visual translation.
