Dit engelstalig symposium gaat over Black Artists and Modernism in Europa na 1968. In de lezingen gaat men dieper in op de onderlinge relaties tussen ras, klasse, gender en seksualiteit, en meer specifiek over hoe de term 'Black' ?gebruikt is door kunstenaars in Europa. - The 3-day symposium Black Artists and Modernism in Europe after 1968 seeks to open up new understandings of Conceptualism produced by artists based in Europe after the political and social upheavals of 1968.
