Call for papers: Der Blau Reiter Centenary Conference, Tate Modern, November 2011

Closing Date: 28 February 2011

This conference celebrates the centenary of the first exhibition of Der Blaue Reiter. This occasion presents a perfect opportunity to review and extend existing scholarship in the field of German Expressionist studies. We invite proposals for 25-minute presentations from academics, graduate students, artists and other professionals in the field that may consider any of the following questions:

  • What were the historical concepts, practices and precedents in which Der Blaue Reiter was grounded?
  • How were Der Blaue Reiter almanac and the related exhibitions assembled? What was the nature of key individual contributions? How did those contributions cohere and/or differ?
  • What are the legacies of Der Blaue Reiter a hundred years on? Are there still ways in which it relates to contemporary forms of art and understanding and if so, how?

Please submit abstracts of up to 500 words together with a 100 word biography by 28 February 2011 to Amber McClory at Amber.McClory@tat.org.uk, with "CfP Der Blaue Reiter" in the subject line.

This conference is part of a two-day event exploring German modernism jointly organised by Tate Modern, The University of Bristol and Cardiff School of Art and Design.

Supported by The Bristol Gallery, Bristol.
