Om Netværket

Nordisk Netværk for Avantgardestudier er et nordisk forskningsnetværk støttet af Nordforsk 2004-2007. Nordisk Netværk for Avantgarde Studier vil styrke og koordinere mindre og spredte nationale forskningsmiljøer, bidrage til at fremme udveksling af viden om forskelle og ligheder mellem de nordiske lande og gøre nordisk avantgardeforskning internationalt synlig. Nordisk Netværk for Avantgardestudier afholder en årlig konference. Netværket danner også ramme for udarbejdelsen af De nordiske avantgarders kulturhistorie i 4 bind og et elektronisk arkiv for dokumenter fra de nordiske avantgarder. Det nordiske forskningsnetværk er en videreudvikling af det danske forskningsnetværk ”Avantgardernes genkomst og aktualitet” støttet af Det humanistiske Forskningsråd 2001-2004. Under forberedelse er et Europæisk Netværk for Avantgarde og Modernisme Studier, EAM, hvis første konference afholdes i Ghent, Belgien, maj 2008.

About the Network

The Nordic Network of Avant-Garde Studies is supported by Nordforsk 2004-2007. The Nordic Network of Avant-Garde Studies aims to support and coordinate small and dispersed national centres of research, help promote the exchange of knowledge about differences and similarities among the avant-garde currents and research in the Nordic countries, and make Nordic avant-garde research visible in a European and international context. The Nordic Network of Avant-Garde Studies has a yearly conference. Within the Network an editorial group is preparing a four-volume Cultural History of the Nordic Avant-Gardes and an electronic archive of documents from the Nordic avant-gardes. The Nordic network is an extension of the Danish research network ”The Return and Actuality of the Avant-Gardes” supported by the Danish Research Council 2001-2004. A European Network of Avant-Garde and Modernism Studies, EAM, is under preparation and will have its first conference in Ghent in May 2008.

Karen Vedel: EN ANDEN DANS - Moderne scenedans i Danmark 1900-1975

Scenedansens historie i Danmark er hidtil blevet skrevet som ballettens – i betydningen Den Kongelige Ballets – historie. Men også scenedansen uden for Det Kongelige Teater udgør et sprudlende felt i dansk kulturliv.

’En anden dans’ fokuserer på årene 1900-1975. På tværs af den traditionelle hierarkiske skelnen mellem finkultur og populærkultur inddrager hun i denne bog dansebegivenheder, der udspillede sig ikke alene på teater-, revy- og gæstespilsscener, men også på danseskolerne, i dagspressen og i de øvrige medier.

Hun fortæller om revyernes dancing girls, barfodsdans, plastik og russisk ballet, fri dans med indflydelse fra centraleuropa, turnéoptrædender med såkaldt ’negerdans’ og det amerikanske fænomen kendt som modern dance. Fælles for modtagelsen er den kombination af fascination og frastødning, hvormed anmelderne reagerede på det nye anderledes og moderne.

Call for papers: Public Disorder: Post-World War II European Art and Its Publics

Public Disorder: Post-World War II European Art and Its Publics

AAH 2009 : Intersections

Manchester Metropolitan University

April 2-4, 2009

 

Following the end of WWII, artists across Europe, both east and west,

sought to re-imagine the identity of the public. The internationalist

utopia of the historical avant-garde had not come to pass, the populism

of the national socialist model had been discredited by Fascism and

Nazism, and it was yet unclear what shape the burgeoning commercial

public would take in either soviet block or western nations.

 

 

This panel seeks to foster a multidisciplinary conversation on the

problem of the post-WWII 'public disorder.' This necessitates crossing

disciplinary boundaries in order to 1) assess the relevance of current

theories of the public and counter-public spheres in relation to the

art production of this period; 2) develop new models of mediation to

elucidate the relationship between artistic practice and the

socio-political sphere and to elaborate on the models of publicity that

emerged within the specific conditions of individual countries; 3)

identify intersections between post-WWII paradigms of the public and

their contemporary reception and critique. It might also entail

considerations of art works that deliberately disdain public

aspirations to explore the realm of privacy as a potential locus of

political engagement.

 

For example, what practices and sites did artists employ to engender a

new, often multiple, public body? How did this endeavour intersect with

specific historical events – i.e., the various wars of independence,

establishment of the European Community, construction of the Berlin

Wall, events of 1968? We seek papers that engage with specific case

studies, employ new theoretical approaches, and develop original

methodological models.
