This international network spans the US, UK and Italy and takes two complementary directions.
The first, its intellectual strand, explores issues arising from interdisciplinarity in the arts in 20th and 21st century Italy. It brings together academics, artists and museum curators. Notions of border-crossing, emancipation, transgression, and fragmentation will be applied to the relations between literature, music, cinema and the visual arts. This strand spans modernism, postmodernism and the internet age. We aim to address questions such as where the roots of modern and contemporary interdisciplinarity lie, what contributed to these developments, what the place of technology, artistic milieu, cafés, internet etc. is in the development of cross-fertilisation. By bringing together people who may never have worked together before, alongside publications, we hope to create new debate and open a space for new projects and new collaborations.
