A work of art comes into being from within the milieu where a variety of expressive mediums encounter one another-here we stay away from the term "media" that might refer to some sociological entity. In other words, all cultural practices are nothing other than the meetings and collisions of forces emanating from within mediums. With this in mind, a reading act that would bring to the fore the traces of such dynamically interacting forces will aptly be called an anamorphic one.
Our panel seeks such ana-morphe analyses, by which we mean the kind of analyses that would re-process and re-act the coming-into-being of a work of art back to where its "form" and "content" was still in the state of forming out of, as well as being formed by, forces in mediums. Each panelist will problematize what we feel has been "achieved" in a work of art, through looking carefully into the interfaces where voices, letters, visuals, bodies and more are intercrossing, affecting and transforming each other.
