Art in transfer in the era of pop

Release av ny bok om konsten på 1960-talet

20.1 2017


Welcome to the release of a new book with international research on the art of the 1960’s. It will be a panel, a lecture by Agata Jakubowska as well as a film screening of Oliver Herdie’s, Stockholm a l’heure du pop, 1964.

How should we understand post-war art? How were issues of cultural transfer and curatorial strategies dealt with in the extended 1960s – the era of pop? These questions and others are addressed by international scholars working within a research area coined horizontal art history (Piotr Piotrowski), in a new anthology from Södertörn University which is released at Moderna Museet.  In the volume, this intense period in art is addressed in new perspectives.

The book: Art in transfer in the Era of Pop, Curatorial Practices and Transnational Strategies (ed. A. Öhrner), Stockholm; Södertörn University in the Series Södertörn Studies in Art History and Aesthetic, 2017.
