BOOM! Growth, Form and Sustainable Bodies 1946–67, 4-5 April 2014

Publication date:

This conference is organised to coincide with the Richard Hamilton retrospective currently at the Tate Modern, which includes the first ever reconstruction of his exhibit Growth and Form (ICA, 1951). Growth and Form negotiated a problematic that in the two decades after the end of WWII preoccupied different strands of artistic and architectural research across Europe. Namely, the effects of booming expansion – economic, demographic, urban, technological, material, visual –  on the embodied subject within the context of a spreading capitalist pan-humanism championed abroad by the US. Some of the key historical coordinates that this conferences sets out to engage with in relation to cultural production include: the so-call consumer-led miracle in Europe, the international context of Edward Steichen’s The Family of Man (1955), the baby boom, Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the first tests of the H-bomb, postwar developments in cybernetics and artificial intelligence, futurology and technological dystopia.
