Readings on War, Exile and Iconoclasm
How to rethink Guernica without reaffirming a canon linked to the universal and ahistorical condition of an icon? Scholars from different fields of knowledge - feminism, political theory, criticism and history of literature, cultural studies and history of art - will examine the work in its 80th anniversary from different concepts and references. Juliet Mitchell and Mignon Nixon, Chantal Mouffe, Lucy Lippard, José-Carlos Mainer, Dario Gamboni and Maurizio Lazzarato and Eric Alliez are part of this series of lectures which seeks to understand and challenge the current influence of the mural.
