Appel à communication : VII Colloque du Musée D. João VI / IV Colloque International – Collections d’Art au Brésil et au Portugal

How is art displayed within collections of different types: scientific, artistic, didactic, museological, private and public? Once we give access to it through this strategy of display, how is it understood? What kind of experience and/or knowledge does it promote? And how does that influence affect the writing of Art Histories? The physical spaces filled by these collections gather different experiences that need to be contemplated [taken into account] in the writing processes of Art Histories. Rather than evaluating works of art through the isolated images of each piece, their photographic representations and the data available in inventories, we propose that trying to access them in physical locations opens up new perspectives. Objects gain concreteness, materiality, positions, means of interaction with other pieces next to them as well as with people who relate to them under these circumstances, which enables us to take into consideration embodied acting observers. In certain locations, empty spaces acquire densities, as intervals between objects working as amalgamations of sense, contributing to give cohesion to the collections. We call for proposals that, within this mental framework, reflect about the spatiality of art collections, considering works of art as they occupy real physical spaces, instigating discussions about art and its location and the means of reception and understanding according to their means of display. . . . → En lire plus

Appel à communication : Batavia in Bavaria. Dutch and Flemish art and artists in southern Germany

Batavia in Bavaria. Dutch and Flemish art and artists in southern Germany

Call for Papers & Workshops

When talking about transnational inspirations for arts and culture in southern Germany, Italy is often named as the first reference. For many centuries, however, there have been various connections with the Netherlands and Flanders, which equally effected the arts and sciences south of the line of the Main river.

In the Middle Ages, dynastic contacts especially furthered the exchange. Between 1353 and 1429 the duchy of Straubing-Holland created a direct political link between the house of Wittelsbach and the Netherlands, which benefitted the mobility of artists and artisans between the two remote territories. With the so-called double marriage of Cambrai (1385) the Bavarian duke Albrecht I. forged . . . → En lire plus

Appel à communication : « Colour in the drawings of the early modern period » (25-27 octobre 2017, Rome, Bibliothèque Hertziana)

Colour in the drawings of the early modern period – symbiosis and antagonism

This year’s Gernsheim study days are dedicated to the subject of colour in early modern drawings. The structure and appearance of these drawings in a genuinely achromatic medium will be examined selectively and comprehensively. Given that colour that extends beyond an imitation of nature has a connotation of preciousness and even exuberance, this ‘optional’ addition to drawings becomes a fraught component of representation. One of the reasons for this is that discrepancies repeatedly come to light between art-historical texts and works of art, between theory and practice. Therefore, the question of the role that colour plays . . . → En lire plus

Appel à communication : « Early Netherlandish Art in the Long 19th Century » (Gand, 24-26 mai 2018)

Revisiting Rediscovery: Early Netherlandish Art in the Long 19th Century Francis Haskell famously argued that the “rediscovery” of early Netherlandish painting in the nineteenth century was central to the notions of history and culture that undergirded the rise of the modern nation-states of Belgium and the Netherlands. This view has been enriched by recent scholarship on the medieval and Renaissance revivalist movements that took hold in both countries from about 1840 through the early years of the twentieth century. Yet the complex relationship between artistic and literary practices of the period and the emergence of a distinctly northern European history of art remains largely unexamined, and its impliations unacknowledged. As Léon de Laborde, Camille Lemonnier, Émile Verhaeren, Hippolyte Fierens-Gevaert, and, slightly later, . . . → En lire plus

Especially for performance art it seems, the interest in its potential of institutional critique has shifted towards an interest in the circumstances of its institutionalization. The status of performance documents for example has been discussed at length (see P. Auslander;A. Jones; M. Widrich), so have implications of re-enactments and re-performances (see H. Higgins; A. Lepecki). By now it may have become clear, that in order to secure performance art’s rightful . . . → En lire plus
