**Practices of Displacement: Mapping  Migration in Cinema, Contemporary Arts and Cultural Heritage. *
**XVII MAGIS International Film Studies Spring School - March 23d - 26th 2019*
*Gorizia (Italy).*

In occasion of the XVII edition of the MAGIS Spring School, the Cinema  and Contemporary Arts section will address the ever topical issue of  migration and its manifold relationships to art (and film) making, curatorship and exhibition. As suggested by Bourriaud (2007), in a global scenario  contemporary art can be seen as “a practice of displacement”, for the  way it transcodes and translates signifying elements from one context to  another. If interpreted in relation to migration as a social phenomenon, “human displacement” can constitute a challenge to artistic practices as  well as archival and curatorial ones (Ring Petersen, 2017; Johansson, Bevelander 2017): whenever dealing with the representations and heritage  of deterritorialized communities, artworks and art institutions become
sites to negotiate cultural differences (Durrant, Lord, 2017).

We are interested in investigating how the concept of migration gets remodulated in those theories, practices, projects, artworks and  artefacts situated in between the realms of cinema and contemporary arts. With this aim, we will encourage proposals addressing (but not limited to) the following research questions:

How do contemporary artists deal with migration and displacement?

How might the notion of mobility be channelled through different visual approaches?

What role have media technologies played in reshaping the concept of human and iconic “displacement” and how have flows of images and sounds informed the practices of artistic documentation?

What role have digital media and networks played in reshaping the concepts of “mobility”, and how have these data flows informed practices of artistic documentation?

How are migrant identities exhibited and represented in the context of museums, art galleries and art institutions? Which displaying /displacing strategies are being adopted so as to reject an
ethnocentric perspective?

We invite the submission of individual paper proposals, workshop proposals and panel proposals specifically addressing the Cinema And Contemporary Arts section. Proposals should contain a short CV (10 lines max) and be no longer than  one page. The deadline for their submission is December 3^rd  2018.

A registration fee (€ 150) will be applied. For more information, please contact us at /(goriziafilmforum /at/ <http://(goriziafilmforum /at/>
