The production of printed image consists of a multiplication of a particular design, whereas the consumption and reception of single impressions often involve various modifications. Multiple, but virtually identical woodcuts or engravings reproduce and thus disseminate the original composition, while at the same time they have lives of their own. They have been placed in various contexts, coloured, trimmed, framed, pasted into books and onto other objects. The place of prints in both visual and material culture of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries is a continuously growing field in recent scholarship. However, these studies usually focus on the most prominent centres of production situated in Italy, the Low Countries, France and the Empire. The principal aim of the conference Multiplied and Modified. Continue reading “CFP: Multiplied and Modified. Reception of the Printed Image in the Fifteenth and Sixteenth Centuries”

CONF: Narrating Culture(s) in Museums and Exhibitions (Lueneburg, 18-19 Jan 18)

“Narrating culture(s)” has multiple meanings: On the one hand museums participate in a distinct form of cultural formation by de- and recontextualizing objects from different eras, fields and geographies. On the other hand they produce narratives about culture(s) within their specific ambit.

We consider the historically defined frameworks under which these museums purport to operate as anything but neutral. The museological production of the (aesthetic) object has already been widely investigated, the museum’s function as a civic or educational institution questioned and it’s legitimacy of collecting the practices of the “others” or inventing heritage and tradition contested.
