Call for Papers ArchiveWhat we now call conceptual art began as a radical interrogation of the basic premises of art, but its worth asking if familiarity has diluted the power of conceptualism. Is conceptual art played out, or does it still retain some sort of power? That question has perhaps become more significant with the publication of Against Expression, Craig Dworkin and Kenneth Goldsmiths anthology of conceptual writing.
Papers might examine work that is explicitly or peripherally conceptual, e.g. Duchamp, Dada, Oulipo, Yves Klein, Joseph Beuys, Yoko Ono, Damien Hirst, Language Poetry, Flarf, Kenneth Goldsmith, etc.
