SEMINAR SERIES : Translation seminar series

MAJOR SPEAKER : Poposki, Zoran

SUMMARY : There is a growing tendency in contemporary art to explore the bonds and interconnections between text and image. The plethora of possible relations between the textual and the visual, across a variety of contemporary art practices, creates a vast geography of image as language and language as image, from typography to language-based art practices. Contemporary study of how language is translated into image, and the meaning which is constructed, displaced or altered in that process of translation, blurs the dividing line between the visual and the verbal, arguing instead of a dialectical relationship between representation, vision and language. More broadly, the cultural landscape that today’s artists navigate is one saturated with signs, a centerless space-time of global negotiation and interchange between agents from different cultures, an emerging network of new pathways of translation between multiple formats of expression and communication.  [Go to the full record in the library's catalogue]
