Networking the Bloc: Rethinking International Relations in European Art
Recently, a website of the Leverhulme Trust funded research project Networking the Bloc: Rethinking International Relations in European Art has been launched. The site introduces Networking the Bloc's aims, provides a space for gathering ideas, and offers information on Networking the Bloc research events. As work progresses, podcasts of events will be added.
The first Networking the Bloc collaborative research event on networks and sociability in East European art, organised with the SocialEast Forum on the Arts and Visual Culture of Eastern Europe and the Courtauld Institute of Art Research Forum, will be held in London, UK, on 23 October 2010.
The SocialEast Forum is a platform for innovative, transnational research on the art and visual culture of Eastern Europe initiated by Dr. Reuben Fowkes in 2006. Based on active collaboration with institutes of art history across Europe and the involvement of prominent academics, curators and artists, SocialEast is an internationally-recognised generator of pioneering research.
The SocialEast Seminar on Networks and Sociability in East European Art is co-organised with Dr. Klara Kemp-Welch at The Courtauld Institute of Art, as part of her Leverhulme Trust funded project Networking the Bloc: Rethinking International Relations in European Art.
