Call for Papers - Art Libraries Section joint with Social Science Libraries Section

At the 2017 IFLA World Library and Information Congress in Wrocław, Poland, the IFLA Art Libraries and Social Science Libraries Sections are sponsoring a session that will give an international perspective on documenting modern and contemporary visual art that lies at the intersection of artistic practice and social activism.

We are seeking speakers who will discuss important repositories of social activist art, innovative documentation methods, and related collecting concerns ranging from censorship and copyright to cross-border cultural patrimony. The term activist art is conceived of broadly and is meant to encompass art in any medium, traditional or non. Papers that speak to the topic from a non-European or North American viewpoint are especially encouraged.

Submit a paper to the Art Libraries Section joint with Social Science Libraries Section open session.

The deadline for sending a proposal with an abstract is March 1st, 2017.

See the full Call for Papers on the IFLA WLIC 2017 website.
