Contemporary art is often expected to meet conflicting requirements. It should represent authentic local spaces whilst being compatible with the globalized art system. It should show highly individualistic traits and at the same time carry with it specific cultural values. Prof. Monica Juneja, who has worked at universities in Austria, France, Germany, India, and the U.S., is an expert on art poised between globalization and locality, diversity and homogeneity. Juneja and Scheller will discuss the "burden of representation" contemporary art is still confronted with, and ask how a "translocal" and "transcultural" art could look like.
