Expanded Conceptualism conference – Day 1, Part 1: evening session

Tate Modern presents a major symposium dedicated to a radical rethinking and expanding of the normative paradigms of Conceptual art, one of the most influential tendencies of the last 40 years. Examining Conceptual art from a variety of geographical, historical and theoretical viewpoints, noted scholars and artists contribute to sessions around issues such as migration and mutation, weapon and survival and the mind/body problem. The event begins with a plenary lecture by Boris Groys.
