Transition, Displacement and Circulation of Objects: Visible and Unseen

This colloquium aims to inquire into the meanings ascribed to, and produced by, the material objects in course of their travel, displacement, circulation, transition in time and space. We suggest to discuss the phenomenology of transitional objects and their performative power; to understand how the meanings of these objects are anchored in their materiality and visibility, how they are communicated by the historical references they evoke, and tightened with the identity of communities that see or ignore them
