“Exceptional People: How Migration Shaped our World and Will Define our Future.” A Talk by Ian Goldin

On Apr 23, Professor Ian Goldin held a Seminar to discuss about “How Migration Shaped our World and Will Define our Future”. Goldin is Professor of Globalisation and Development and director of the Oxford Martin School, University of Oxford; together with Geoffrey Cameron and Meera Balarajan, he is the author of the book Exceptional People: How Migration Shaped our World and Will define our Future (published by Princeton University Press in September 2011).

In the contemporary more interconnected world, characterized by increased migration flows, Goldin looks at the profound advantages that such dynamics have for countries and migrants the world over, and proposes new approaches […]

Treading a Fine Line? Art History Meets Curatorship at University of Hong Kong

These days, Ruth Noack, Leader of the MeLa Research Field 04 “Curatorial and Artistic Research”, is visiting China; on this occasion, she will give a lecture at the Department Fine Arts of the University of Hong Kong.

Is it possible to think of language and image, discourse and art works as equally valent? It stands to reason that curators and art historians would have a different answer to this question, as they have different disciplinary socialisations, different tools and methods, different experiences with art. Ruth Noack’s lecture will not clarify these differences, but instead experiment in conflating both approaches. The exploration of the topic will focus on the work by Indian artist Nasreen Mohamedi (1937-1990).
