Appel à candidature : « Iconoclasme et vandalisme », bourses en résidence du Getty Research Institute (Los Angeles, 2017-2018)

gri_logoLe Getty Research Institute propose des bourses en résidence pour l’année 2017–2018 pour les chercheurs confirmés sur le thème de l’Iconoclasme et du vandalisme. Il s’agira d’explorer l’iconoclasme comme forme de destruction mais aussi comme  véhicule d’expression créatrice et de protestation. L’Iconoclasme transforme et créé entièrement de nouveaux objets ou de nouvelles significations à travers l’altération des oeuvres d’art.  Ces objets ou significations, symboliquement investis, témoignent  d’une histoire de la réception en offrant des clés sur la vie et le destin d’un objet. Tout changement radical dans la production culturelle peut, dans une certaine mesure, être considéré comme iconoclaste.

Les candidats sont invités à adopter une approche large du thème en proposant des sujets sur l’iconoclasme religieux et politique, la sauvegarde de l’héritage culturel, l’usage de la spoliation, de la damnatio memoriae, du street art, du graffiti, de la performance art, ou de l’activisme.

On trouveras ici et ci-dessous les conditions pour faire acte de candidature.
Date limite : 3 octobre 2016.
