Transnational Perspectives on Contemporary Art: Identities and Representation is a cluster of the Contemporary Art Studies Group (CASt). Privileging the articulation of transnational perspectives on contemporary art and with a specific, though not exclusive, focus on Lusophone spaces, this section aims to explore zones of intersection between contemporary artistic practices, representations of identities and processes of geographical, historical, political and cultural inscription. It develops interdisciplinary approaches that are rooted in art history but, at the same time, are substantially nourished by other areas of knowledge production like geography, post-colonial studies and feminist theoretical formations.
