Art in Britain has always been concerned with mourning and morbidity, and with death as a social, cultural and ritualistic process. This event will consider the extent to which death and its visual cultures have impacted the production and reception of art in Britain and beyond.
In light of recent work on the sculptural quality of the funerary monument, we ask how art in Britain might be seen in relation to longer histories of death and mourning.
In collaboration with the University of York’s Death Studies Network, the British Art Research School will host an informal workshop which aims to facilitate cross-disciplinary collaboration and new thought on the topic of death and British Art. We invite short position papers or provocations (no longer than 15 minutes) that consider the visual and material manifestations of death in British culture, by researchers of all levels whose interests are connected with British Art.
Subjects may include (but are not limited to) the following:
Participants are invited to send titles of their presentations to email@example.com
The deadline for submissions is January 20th, 2015.
Location: The Treehouse, Berrick Saul Building
