Indeed the ethnographic turn in contemporary art is still to be questioned. By exploring a spectrum of essential aspects related to this situation, this event gathers artists, filmmakers, art historians, curators and anthropologists — in order to intertwine art and anthropology, cultural critic and visual theory. Two days of conferences and debates, welcoming international speakers, are combined with three evenings of screenings and performances at Centre Pompidou. Speakers interventions and debates will be articulated on four transverse panels :: Autoreflexivity and experimentation ; Contracts and power relations ; Fiction and narratives ; Museum, archives, exhibition. Performance by Simon Fujiwara London.

Ethnography is the scientific description of the customs of peoples and cultures. Transidioethnography is a neologism conceived in England to describe a transdisciplinary practice that fuses autoethnographic field work, ethnographic practice and multimedia arts.

The prefix "trans" suggests liminality , a quality of 'in between-ness', valuing cultures 'in between' predominant cultures. Artists and anthropologists share a set of common practices that raise similar ethical issues, which the authors explore in depth for the first time. The book presents a strong argument for encouraging artists and anthropologists to learn directly from each other's practices 'in the field'.

It goes beyond the so-called 'ethnographic turn' of much contemporary art and the 'crisis of representation' in anthropology, in productively exploring the implications of the new anthropology of the senses, and ethical issues, for future art-anthropology collaborations He notes that as the author is bound to her patron, so, often is the artist bound to her sponsor, who may re-code the work as public engagement or even 'self-critique', inoculating it from critique from outside the institution.

Despite these valid points, Foster admits that the collaboration between artists and communities have often resulted in illuminating results, such as recovering suppressed histories.

The concept of Autoethnography , a self-taught, or folk ethnography of one's own culture is discussed in Danahay's book Auto-Ethnography [2] can be seen as a more reflexive, subjective recording of first-hand experience, surmounting the traditional observer-observed relationship in traditional Ethnography.

Foster, Hal. Brandon Hopkins bhopkins uchicago. In The Return of the Real , Hal Foster investigates the goals and practices neo-avant-garde art movements and their relation to modernist movements such as dada, surrealism, and constructivism. He posits that the site of political transformation is always perceived as being elsewhere, in the repressed other—for the modern artist in the proletariat, for the post-modern artist in the post-colonial, the subaltern, the subcultural—and that perception of this elsewhere is distorted by a realist assumption that the other has an authenticity lacking in the self and a primitivist assumption wherein there is a mapping over of the other, such that the here-and-now self is superior to the there-and-then other. The artist must resist the tendency to project political truth onto this constructed other. Yet though the practice of self-othering is important to the critical practice of art, Forster warns it can lead to self-absorption, ethnographic self-fashioning, and narcissistic self-refurbishing.



Sous la dir. Textes de J. Anti-colonial and anti-imperialist struggles, along with the critical works initiated in the field of social science and humanities in the s cultural and postcolonial studies and their circulation widely contributed to this phenomenon. It gradually became the modus operandi of numerous artists, as shown by the different art forms stemming from a taste for archives, reflections on problems of the subject, a distrust for ethnocentrism and its consequences, and a strong interest in the identity complex in these times of subaltern studies. Documenta 14, curated by Adam Szymczyk in Athens and Kassel during the summer of confirms their permanence through the reuse of museographical devices including showcases, the massive use of documents, documentary films, etc. Simultaneously, for the past few years, anthropology exhibitions curated by anthropologists pay considerable attention to contemporary art.
