“Constant Change: The Temporal Dimensions of Materialities in the Arts”, the 3rd Annual Conference of the Cluster of Excellence, July 5–7, 2023, focuses on how arts travel through time with their materialities constantly changing. While the spatial dynamics of travelling materialities have already been conceptualized in a variety of ways, the conference will shift attention primarily to material mobilities in time. What role does the mutability of the material play in the practice of the arts? How do material transformations effect the perception of artistic works, but also the production and experience of time? How are the relations between materials and times negotiated in theories and discourses of the arts? Based on these discussions, “Constant Change” will also provide contributions to the Cluster’s ongoing research on temporal communities. The conference takes place in cooperation with the Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin.
