CONF: 4th Conference on Empirical Methods in Art History and Visual Studies, Vienna, July 4-5, 2019

Over the last decade we have been observing a new trend in the humanities towards the systematic use of empirical methods. The first three Art + Science Conferences on Empirical Methods in Art History and Visual Studies in 2015, 2016 and 2017 proved that Art History and the Visual Studies are no exception to this international trend.Methods for example traditionally stemming from Psychology and Neurology or the Social and Computational Sciences are gradually implemented in art research not only to question premises of classical approaches but to tap new perspectives on our field. The incorporation of these methods also allows transcending encrusted disciplinary boundaries and fosters interdisciplinary dialogue as well as interdisciplinary connectivity.

Despite the uncontested benefit of interdisciplinary research when accessing new methodological ground, the crucial necessity to at least partly re-embed one owns work in the ancestral field remains: a goal that can only be reached, if the art sciences find common ground not only with regard to theoretical but also with respect to methodological issues within their own field. The aim of the Art + Science Conference series is to give new approaches in the art sciences a platform and to support exchange among scholars concerned with empirical approaches to art research.

The symposium will be held in the auditorium of the RAA building, University of Zurich, Raemistrasse 59, 8001 Zurich (RAA-G-01, Aula, second floor).

The symposium aims to represent various case studies of Korean art in the West to create an overview of the state of research and methodologies in the field. It seeks to explore the trajectories of movement of Korean art in the past centuries and its reception outside of Korea. Our focus lies on the collecting practices, museum displays and cultural mediation, appropriations and uses of Korean art in the West, and on the comparative perspectives on similar processes in Korea. As the first symposium of its kind in bringing together Korean art scholars to Switzerland, it attempts to give a deeper insight into the collections of Korean art in Switzerland and other countries as well as to open a new field of public and academic interest in the study of Korea.

CONF: DEA_Design d’Espace/Allestimento/Exhibition Design (Paris, 13-15 Jun 19)

University Paris 8, ENSA Paris-Malaquais, June 13 – 15, 2019

International Symposium: “DEA_Design d’Espace/Allestimento/Exhibition Design”

Considered as an intellectual process that brings together various forms of exhibiting within a process of spectatorial interrelation, Exhibition Design is today a process of visual representation, the product of an architectural gesture, a creative process in its own right, and a spectator immersion tool. At a time when the Exhibition Design is thus called to respond to the complexity of multiple social realities, the questioning of the heuristic potential of such a discipline is urgent.
