The citizen artist asks: is the idea of artistic transgression only a conceit? protest, subversion and resistance in contemporary artistic discourse

Plessner, Daphne (2011) The citizen artist asks: is the idea of artistic transgression only a conceit? protest, subversion and resistance in contemporary artistic discourse. In: Art & Education and ArtForum Conference, 2011. (Submitted)

Type of Research: Conference, Symposium or Workshop Item
Creators: Plessner, Daphne

Working title for a conference paper submitted to: Art & Education Inaugural Papers Prize: 'No Rules Negotiating Art & Deregulation'.

Permitting approval, a 20 minute presentation is to be included at a conference hosted by Art & Education and ArtForum together with a publication in Art and Education.

Additional Information (Publicly available):

In support of young scholars conducting innovative research in contemporary art, Art&Education is pleased to announce a Call for Papers for its inaugural Papers Prize, which includes a research sum of 2000 USD and the opportunity to present a paper at a conference, organized by Artforum & e-flux co-sponsored by Society of Contemporary Art Historians, on the subject of the deregulation in art practice and history.

What is the relationship between art and deregulation? Over the past four decades, the deregulation of global markets has been accompanied by the rise of flexible labor, the proliferation of highly sophisticated financial instruments, and increasing social complexity. Art&Education wishes to examine the possible links between such economic shifts, the putative rise of post-industrial society, and contemporary artistic practices, taking into account the renewed global interest in performativity, social and technological networks, and collaboration. By considering such topics in dialogue or counterpoint with historical precedents, we hope to arrive at a more sophisticated understanding of artistic production and reception today–a field in which rules aren’t bent but are simply fluid.

One submission will be chosen as a recipient of the Art&Education Papers Prize. The winner and two-runners up will be given the opportunity to present a 20-minute portion of their research at a conference, featuring both invited and submitted papers and presentations. Details will be announced at a later date.

Texts should be research-based articles pertaining to art history or contemporary art, and may be drawn from conference papers, seminar papers, dissertation chapters, etc. All submitted texts will be considered for publication on Art&Education.
