Symposium: “Mel Bochner on Translation”

Mel Bochner has distinguished himself since the mid-1960s with his works and critical texts that are both generative and disruptive to institutional critical discourse. At this symposium, art historians and philosophers convene to open new perspectives on Bochner’s work, focusing on its formal and theoretical speculations about language and meaning that involve methods of interlinguistic and intersemiotic translation.  The December 6 symposium is followed by a research seminar on Saturday, December 7, at the Kandinsky Library, with Mel Bochner. This colloquium is organized by Art by Translation and the Kandinsky Library in collaboration with the Ecole Normale Supérieure de Cachan and the Beaux-Arts de Paris.

Please note: If the Centre Pompidou is closed, then the symposium will take place at the Beaux Art of Paris. (inside the Aphithéatre d’honneur).
