Creative Constellations

This issue is the result of a two-year work initiated during the conference “Creative Constellations: Feminine/Queer Heritages and Networks”. It proposes a collective reflection on the concept of "constellations", which the authors have tried to approach and define from various corpuses and methodologies - art history, literature, creation, socio-history, and communication studies. This approach leads to questioning some major myths of creation: those of heritage and posterity, of the pantheon or the canon, of the centre and the margin, of the objectivity of value judgements deciding which are the great works of a heritage, of the power of art and literature over society. It is a question of imagining ways to get out of the "obligatory filiations", to justify their interest. The concept of "constellations" is thus thought of as a critical tool, a "practice", conducive to the deployment of new research methods around the works of women or queer artists. We propose a notion of constellation that is in itself creative: a "constellating critique", cobbled together, supported by different cases and contexts of analysis.
