Translocality in the arts
What is the future of international cultural collaboration in a reality in which postcolonial legacies continue to persist and the environment is rapidly degrading? What is the future of transborder artists exchanges in a world where inequalities and geographic disparities have only been growing and national frontiers have been strengthened?
In this session held online on 22 October 2022 in the context of IETM Lyon Plenary Meeting, Dutch philosopher, writer and poet Maarten Doorman talked about the concept of translocality in the arts, which challenges the notions of national and international and emancipates the concept of the local in a global perspective. His intervention was followed by reactions from art professionals from Australia, Poland and Lebanon, and then the floor was open for a discussion with the audience.
