Our goal is to organize a conference that addresses and questions current artistic and scientific positions on partisan art through the lens of gender and gender-theories. The focus lies on art and culture both of the partisan movement and about the partisan movement in Yugoslavia and Carinthia.
The question that guides this conference is: how – in addition to politically and socially rooted themes such as the struggle for liberation, the question of class, the socialist revolution, and the victory over Nazism – can we pinpoint aesthetics of the “partisan” that conveys specific revolutionary and emancipatory narratives, and how can this aesthetic be (re)interpreted through a gender-focused gaze?
The conference aims to generate scientific knowledge that encompasses cultural-theoretical, historical-scientific and art-analytical positions, that explores the formats of the partisan aesthetic.
