Item description for Diversities by Carlos Basualdo, Anna Detheridge & Yuko Hasegawa...
What is the role of the contemporary artist in a reality that interprets cultures as conflicting parties and Europe as a closed space? How does his identity develop in relation to European cultures and those that exist elsewhere in the world? Does there exist an acceptable comparative footing that permits otherwise explosive diversities to engage in dialogue with each other? These questions were the starting point for an international forum on the deepest cultural roots of European thought. Hosted in Como in 2004 by the Antonio Ratti Foundation, the forum welcomed renowned intellectuals, curators, and critics who posed crucial questions about the implications and future prospects of creativity. Presented here are the panels and discussions that arose from the forum on an historically and traditionally divided multi-identity Europe, which is now attempting to unite politically and economically. Edited by Lrnd Hegyi.
