2010 Conference: Religion in the Hispanic Baroque: The First Atlantic Culture and its Legacy

January 16, 2010 Leave a comment

The Foresight Centre, Liverpool, 12-14 May 2010

This interdisciplinary conference will investigate the role of religion in the Hispanic Baroque. We propose to explore the Baroque not merely as a specific and historical set of literary, artistic and architectural styles. Rather we seek to study it as a complex cultural system that emerged from early modern transatlantic interaction and exchange of knowledge and imagination, and that continues to shape the political, social and cultural reality of the Atlantic world and beyond to this day.

Drawing on the concept of ‘cultural anthropophagy’, which goes back to the 1928 Manifesto Antropófago by the Brazilian poet and polemicist Oswald De Andrade, an exhibit and a series of talks reflect on the critical digestion of the other as a fundamental issue in the phenomenology of cultural encounters.

Silent Revolution. Solo show of Demian Schopf

Demian Schopf’s The Silent Revolution is a photographic series of enactments of baroque paintings of angels and archangels from the Latin-American colonial period, an interesting hybrid coming out from the encounter/clash between European and Indigenous visual cultures.
