Only the concentration on the motive of the contact, the multiple transcultural moments of exchange and interrelations, and the investigation of this multifaceted contact is capable of dissolving the dichotomous structures inscribed in the Global Art History.
Only in contact and often in conflictual confrontations with others embody phases of change. Artistic and politically interested encounters of at least two actors in the field of tension between cooperation and confrontation seem to hold potential for overcoming the dichotomy of Western and non-European (art) stories.
What, then, are the motives and conditions that enable certain actors to think or do something specific at a certain point in time and thus to exceed the spaces of thought and action assigned to their subject positions?
The artistic positions shown here negotiate, very differently, these aesthetic, ideological and strategic fault lines.
