Welcome to the website for the Art and Politics Specialist Group of the UK Political Studies Association and British International Studies Association.
The objectives of the group are:
- To foster interdisciplinary and critical research that connects art, culture, politics and international relations. We conceive of both ‘art’ and ‘politics’ in the broadest terms, and are keen to facilitate intellectual work that examines all aspects of the cultural landscape.
- To facilitate contact between scholars, researchers, practitioners, artists, curators, journalists, and others engaged in exploring the broad connections between art and politics within an intellectual and critical framework
- To organize workshops, conferences, conference panels and such other events as may facilitate the achievement of objectives 1 and 2.
Membership shall be open to all members of the UK Political Studies Association, the British International Studies Association, and any other interested party who is engaged in exploring the broad connections between art and politics and who will enable the group to meet its stated objectives.
