The 7th biennial conference of the EAM intends to tackle the ways in which the avant-garde and modernism in Europe relate to crisis/es. Although we welcome panel, roundtable and paper proposals on any aspect of this relationship, we are particularly interested in new research on three topics:

  1. theoretical complexity of the notion of crisis

  2. crises-laden historical trajectory of the avant-gardes and modernism.

  3. practical side of things, across all areas of avant-garde and modernist activity: art, literature, music, architecture, film, artistic and social movements, lifestyle, television, fashion, drama, performance, activism, curatorial practice, design and technology.
