Art and anthropology after relations

Roger Sansi, Marilyn Strathern

Abstract


The following text is the result of a conversation between the authors in the context of the Cambridge Interdisciplinary Performance Network. The point of departure for this conversation was the recent publication of Roger Sansi’s Art, anthropology and the gift (Bloomsbury, 2015), a monograph about the relation between art and anthropology. From that basis, the conversation engages with a number of concepts—from the uses of the notion of the gift in art and anthropology, to the avatars of the “relational” also in both fields, to wider questions of detachment and interdisciplinarity.
