Appel à publication : Anthology of Historical Art in the Long Nineteenth Century

2021 saw the publication of ‘Representing the Past in the Art of the Long Nineteenth-Century: Historicism, Postmodernism, Internationalism’ by Routledge. That edited collection aimed to nurture new perspectives on historical painting, bring new countries into the frame, and challenge established wisdoms about what historical art was in the period between 1789 and 1914. History Painting, historical genre painting, and documentary artistic practices engaging multiple media were all touched upon with case studies from around the globe including Australia, China and Turkey, in order to offset the Western focus of traditional historiography on this subject.

Routledge have now commissioned a new anthology aimed at providing a reader for historical art of the long nineteenth century as a follow-up to the edited collection. The ambition is to provide an ambitious . . . → En lire plus

Appel à communication : Rubens and the World (Antwerp, 5-6 May 25)

Tout le monde pour ma patrie: Rubens and the World. Rubenshuis, Kolveniersstraat 20, Antwerp, May 5–6, 2025

Peter Paul Rubens’s visual ideas spread astoundingly far from his home in Antwerp both during and after his lifetime. In the seventeenth century his paintings arrived at destinations throughout Europe, and dealers shipped painted copies and titanic quantities of engravings after his designs even farther afield, reaching Cuzco, Isfahan, Jingdezhen, and many other places. He saw himself as a man of the world, as he wrote in a letter to a friend in 1625: “I regard the whole world as my country, and I believe that I should be very welcome everywhere.” The world also came to Rubens, whether in the form of models of African descent who feature in his . . . → En lire plus

Appel à communication. Hard Bodies (Frankfurt a.M., 9-11 Jan 25)

Hard Bodies: Aesthetic, Materiality, and Mediality of Masculinity in American and European Art and Visual Culture, c. 1900 – today

Goethe-Universität Frankfurt a.M., Jan 9–11, 2025 Deadline: Jul 15, 2024

Description: The hard body is omnipresent in contemporary culture. It evokes purity, whiteness, and resistance to cracking or contamination. It is the result of disciplined self-optimization (physical training, a strict diet, dietary supplements, and/or surgery) and part of the iconography of white supremacy. Contemporary artists only refer to the hard male body to destroy it – like Candice Lin in her installation A Hard White Body (2017).

So, why should we revisit the hard male body, with its undeniable hegemonic bias? Why not dismiss it, and look at the fragmented, performative, vulnerable, and transformative male body instead?

Colloque Breaking Out, repenser les imaginaires carcéraux féminins

Colloque « Breaking Out, repenser les imaginaires carcéraux féminins »
24 et 25 juin 2024 -Université de Picardie Jules Verne, Amiens
Une actualité éditoriale, curatoriale et scientifique tend à reconsidérer l’importance d’une réflexion quant aux imaginaires contemporain des espaces carcéraux – et des corps et individualités qui les habitent, en particulier féminins. Après une période de relative invisibilisation de ces questions ayant fait suite aux travaux largement diffusés de l’observatoire des prisons et de Michel Foucault en particulier dans les années soixante-dix, un ensemble de manifestations permet d’observer une transformation des représentations et des imaginaires associés aux conditions carcérales des . . . → En lire plus

Appel à communications. (P)Ostkolonialismus (Berlin, 24-25 Oct 24)

(P)Ostkolonialismus (Berlin, 24-25 Oct 24)

Berlin, Oct 24–25, 2024 Deadline: Jul 14, 2024

In the 19th century, Poland, the so called “Wild East”, already formed part of Germany’s colonial aspirations (Kopp 2012). Both Prussia and the German Empire, as well as the Nazi state, repeatedly attempted to fulfill their colonial settlement ambitions in Eastern Europe. This materialized in Bismarck’s Germanization policy, the occupied territory “Ober Ost” during the First World War, and Nazi Germany’s “Generalplan Ost”. The German mass crimes in the region during the Second World War were based on these continuities of anti-Slavic policies and convictions. Colonial and racist patterns of thought and behavior towards Eastern Europe continue to have an impact in many respects in the present day.

Appel à communication : Mannerism and Crisis (Boston, 20-22 Mar 25)

When Mannerism emerged as a field of art historical study during the first part of the twentieth century, it was construed as a moment of crisis. To proponents of Geistesgeschichte such as Max Dvořák, Walter Friedlaender, and Erwin Panofsky or Marxists like Friedrich Antal and Arnold Hauser, Mannerism became a token of crises, either of a philosophical and existential nature or an outcome of tensions in the socio-economic base. Much criticism of these scholarly approaches has since emerged from different ideological and methodological perspectives, including that of John Shearman who during the 1960s argued for a “stylish style,” indifferent to societal change. The aim of this session is not to rehearse the historiography but to . . . → En lire plus

Appel à communication : Baroque Times: The table’s scenography (Vila Nova de Foz Côa, 14-16 Nov 24)

International Congress: « Baroque Times: The table’s scenography ».

Call for Papers: When discussing the table or the act of being at the table, our immediate thoughts go to the act of eating, the company present, and the food to be shared. However, the table transcends its practical function to become a richly layered symbol, both materially and conceptually, embodying sociability in myriad ways throughout history.

During the modern era (17th-18th centuries), the table’s significance unfolded across diverse contexts and environments, from the opulent settings of palaces to the humble abodes of common citizens. Regardless of setting, the table served as a focal point, drawing together a spectrum of personalities and activities, thus assuming a . . . → En lire plus

Appel à communication : Vanity, Morality, and Race in Seventeenth-Century Britain (New Haven, 27-28 sept. 2024)

Puritan Picture: Vanity, Morality, and Race in Seventeenth-Century Britain.

Yale Center of British Art, New Haven, CT, USA, Sep 27–28, 2024

The middle decades of the seventeenth century in Britain were characterized by radical political, religious, and social change. In this period, an unknown artist created a remarkable painting that spoke to fears and anxieties crystallizing around a perceived increase in moral laxity, gender transgression, and the insidious influence of foreigners. The painting depicts two women side by side, each wearing a conspicuous array of beauty patches. The woman on the left reprimands her companion with the words “I black with white bespott: . . . → En lire plus

Goya, les femmes, la pornographie et la terreur

Si la pornographie signifie littéralement écrire sur la prostitution, peu d’œuvres de la fin du XVIIIe siècle relèvent aussi clairement de ce genre que les Caprices, un ensemble de 80 estampes radicalement subversives, dont une grande partie commente de manière satirique l’exploitation et le dénigrement des femmes.

Appel à communication : Geological Imagination in the Art of the Long Nineteenth Century (Huntington Library, 2025)

The Geological Imagination in the Art of the Long Nineteenth Century (Huntington Library, 2025).

Organizers: Nina Amstutz (University of Oregon) Stephanie O’Rourke (University of St Andrews)

Call for Papers: In the last decade, there has been a surge of interest in geology and its attendant fields – such as stratigraphy, paleontology, and geomorphology – in the arts and humanities, catalyzed by the notion that we have entered a new geological epoch. Yet this “geological turn” in the academy did not originate with the recent public awareness of anthropogenic climate change. During the long nineteenth century–a period widely accepted as the ‘crucible of western modernity’ and the emergence . . . → En lire plus
