Neolithic Childhood: Conference

About This Series

Neolithic Childhood: Conference

From the false present of the Weimar Republic and life philosophies in times of crisis, from Carl Einstein’s “invention” of African art to the concept of yinyang and its queer potential: The conference accompanying the exhibition Neolithic Childhood. Art in a False Present, c. 1930 examines the relationship between the global crises of around 1930 and those of the present day. International art historians and academics illuminate the cultural significance of the recourse to deep time and origin narratives.

With Irene Albers, James Clifford, Silvy Chakkalakal, Joyce Cheng, Anselm Franke, Tom Holert, Charles W. Haxthausen, Susanne Leeb, Sven Lütticken, Jenny Nachtigall, Sylvester Okwunodu Ogbechie, Kerstin Stakemeier, Maria Stavrinaki, Zairong Xiang
