Finally, after a six month wait, it is here…
The audio from the 2007 Stone Summer Theory Institute: Is Art History Global?
This will be a series of six or seven 2-4 hour excerpts from the week-long event. In advance of the second iteration “What is an Image?” You can find more info and the application for the 2008 Institute at… http://www.stonesummertheoryinstitute.org

Keep in mind that this audio is rough “B-side stuff,” but nonetheless provides a chance to go behind the curtain on this thoughtful conversation.
In this episode we present… “The Intro Round Table Event.”

2007: The Globalization of Art, co-organized with Zhivka Valiavicharska
The book will be co-edited with Alice Kim; please see the book series for more information.
The “biennale culture” now determines much of the art market. Literature on the worldwide dissemination of art assumes nationalism and ethnic identity, but rarely analyzes it. At the same time, there is extensive theorizing about globalization in politics, postcolonial theory, economics, sociology, and anthropology.
This was the first event of the series to bring political theorists together with writers and historians concerned specifically the visual arts and its art history.
Seminars were taught by Fredric Jameson, Harry Harootunian, Thomas DaCosta Kaufmann, Shigemi Inaga, Susan Buck-Morss, James Elkins, and Zhivka Valiavicharska.
