Music and Art in Pandemic, a conference targeting the art of music, and the arts that connected with music, wants to record the artistic, social, managerial and educational experience of this pandemic year, as well of the similar situations in the history of epidemics. We invite you to participate, answering current questions about the condition of the visual artist, choreographer, director, critic, musician, composer, performer, teacher – How is the spirit of these times reflected in contemporary art? Online versus “real” art, live performance versus recording, online courses versus classroom teaching? Quo vadis music? Quo vadis art? Are the options, the choices, the attitudes limited? Forbidden art or arrested art? Acceptance or protest?
The conference is organised by the University of Arts, Târgu Mureș. We accept for presentation scientific studies but also reports, case studies, reviews, analyses, journals or essays in the following languages: English (preferably), Romanian, French and Hungarian. Selected papers will be published in a special issue of Symbolon, a journal indexed by CEEOL, Index Copernicus, Crossref and evaluated in category B by the Romanian National Council for Scientific Research (CNCS).
