(a)About the Forum and the Theme

The 4th Peking University International Doctoral Student Forum of Art Studies will be held at Peking University from 2nd to 4th September, 2022. This year’s theme is Artistic Reconstruction of Values We’d like to invite young scholars from all over the world to share their latest academic achievements and exchange thoughts and ideas in the four sub-forums of Art Theory, Art History, Film Studies and Cultural Industries.

The ourtbreak of coronovirus may be distrupting our work and life, but can’t stop us from thinking. In 2022, the rebound of the pandemic indicates that the global crisis of public health may worsen at any time. Meanwhile, the geopolitical conflict such as the Russo-Ukrainian War keeps escalating, and the world economy has encountered its most difficult moment since the new millennium. While we step into the "post-pandemic era", the collapse of the globalized world picks up pace. As we strive to find and rebuild lifestyles, the trend of the "metaverse" and debates on NFT Art prompt us to reflect carefully on the gloryfied technological future...  The values we once believed in and followed simplely cannot sustain us anymore. In such context, can art help us find a new anchor and starting point?

This year, the theme of the forum is "Artistic Reconstruction of Values". We encourage young scholars to confront such a critical time, to actively engage reality, and to reinterpret the value of art. Art, as a kind of spontaneous, non-linear, illogical and creative problem-solving competence solely owned by humanity, equals Science and Philosophy. Science explores and reveals the laws of the material world through empirical research. Philosophy deepens our comprehension of the world with concepts and logic. Art will certainly respond to the status-quo and the future problems with its distinctive history and power. Art will show its irreplaceable value in such a watershed crisis, and sustain our faith in rebuilding our lives and facing the future. We call on the young scholars to take on this responsibility, contributing to the most vivid thinking on the polarities of individual vs. world, tradition vs. innovation, crisis vs. opportunity, and present vs. future.
