When conceptual art crosses borders
The spotlight is on Latin American artists who fled repressive political regimes in their countries and established themselves in Europe between 1968 and 1979. The EU-funded project COART-INT will study these transnational artists to understand the role of these expatriate artists and their influences in Europe and in the formulation of internationalism. The project will delve into issues of exile, locality versus internationality, mobility and the appearance of the concept of globality. It will base its findings on an analysis of data, oral history and artwork to define the new internationalism of contemporary art.
