Contemporary Anthropologies of Art

Nikolai Ssorin-Chaikov, an associate professor of the Department of History HSE in St Petersburg took part in the conference “Contemporary Anthropologies of Art” which was held at the Durham University (England) on September 9, 2015.   

This workshop was the inaugural research event of the Anthropologies of Art network and digital platform. The workshop sought to map out contemporary anthropological perspectives to art. It built on established approaches in this field such as those of Alfred Gell and Pierre Bourdieu, and on theoretical innovations such as ethnographic conceptualism (Ssorin-Chaikov 2013) or relational aesthetics (Sansi 2014). Paper presenters from Oslo, St Petersburg, Berlin, Barcelona and the UK debated new pathways of anthropological inquiry in this field. A key proposition behind this workshop was the idea that contemporary art theory and practice are increasingly in dialogue with theories of sociality – how we relate to other people to create meaning – and therefore connected to core anthropological interests.
