Colloque en ligne organisé par Anne-Sophie Coiffet

The hybridization of theater and visual arts has transformed these disciplines and their respective theories. Theatricality – a versatile and complex notion used in theater and visual arts theory – blurs the contours of (re)presentation and encourages a new understanding of these discipline’s limits, their aboutness and their agency. From theatrum theory to theatrum mundi, theatricality has encouraged visual arts theoreticians to consider the medium of encounter between works of art and spectators.
