> prevailing theoretical approaches and regional specific genealogies.
> Significantly, he questioned the deconstructivist paradigm, which
> pervades the debate and ignores the cultural as well as historical
> specificity of an originally French strand of aesthetic discourse that
> has increasingly been taken as universal.
> The panel aims to bridge earlier inquiries into cultural and historical
> differences and entanglements with more recent transcultural and
> transnational perspectives (e.a. Juneja 2018 and 2017, Tomii 2016,
> D’Souza 2014, Kravagna 2013) when discussing artistic collaboration in
> an age of decolonization and globalization. As part of the TrACE Academy
> “Worlding the Global” which seeks to relate long separated discourses of
> settler-colonial, Indigenous, migrant, diasporic, and other
> transnational and transcultural histories and ways of knowing in art,
> the panel aim is to understand how these perspectives enact and
> (co-)constitute the global when “we work together.” The panelists are
> asked to move towards understanding decolonization as a multi-sited and
> collaborative engagement with histories, epistemologies, power,
> migration, capital, and culture. Given the International Indigenous Art
> Exhibition "Àbadakone / Continuous Fire / Feu Continuel" at the National
> Gallery of Canada as a starting point, the four speakers should engage
> at least with one of the following questions:
> - How to write and present art history in ways that critically
> acknowledge and distinguish collaborative authorship (auctorialités) and
> local as well as global cultural entanglements?
> - How do collaborative artists/works address issues of situatedness in
> spatial as well as temporal regards? In other words: how do
> collaborative strategies contribute to “worlding the global” beyond
> dominant binary narratives?
> - Does artistic collaboration serve particular functions in the process
> of decolonization? What roles do collaborative practices play in the
> expression of Indigenous voices?
> - What are the conditions and limits of artistic collaboration?
> - How are ethics, epistemologies and histories of collaboration
