CFP: Times and Movements of the Image (Lisbon, 15-16 Nov 2018)

Among several artistic projects and critical debates developed in recent years in the fields of art history, art criticism, film and new media studies, many bring to the fore issues of hybridity, medium specificity and image materiality. Emphasis is placed on questions concerning the ways of experiencing "subliminal images" (R. Durand, 1995) in contemporary visual practices.

We invite scholars, artists and independent researchers interested in the study of the multiple times and movements of the images, probed in their limits and potentialities across different media and disciplines. We are interested in presentations and artistic projects that consider the tensions between the still image and the moving image, and/or that seek to examine the problems of durability posed by the new technologies of the image and by performance art, while keeping focus on the many issues this subject raises when confronted with the so-called traditional disciplines of painting, sculpture and drawing.

All proposals must be submitted by email to: by 15 June 2018.
