What is the Scottish Endarkenment? Curatorial method between binary and ecological approaches

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract / Description of output

This paper revisits The Scottish Endarkenment. Art and Unreason. 1945 to the Present, an exhibition hosted in Edinburgh, Scotland in 2016. The ideas that drove the show represented a critique and alternative view of the idea of Enlightenment, particularly those pertaining to Scottish culture historically and since 1945 in visual art. A number of years on, this paper posits other ways, beyond binaries of dark/light to understand the show, specifically in ways that move those binary logics towards one that deals with themes of relationality and separation. What are the possibilities of making such a retranslation of this curatorial project?
