GERMANY AND FRANCE:
ART MARKET AND ART COLLECTING 1900–1945
International Conference at TU Berlin, Germany
Friday – Saturday,
Venue: Technische Universität Berlin, Senate Room H 1035/1036, Straße des 17. Juni 135, 10623 Berlin
Refugee crises, trade wars, migration debates: within the context of global geopolitical, economic and cultural-political upheavals, Europe is presently undergoing a process of transformation. At the same time, European territorial occupations and past colonial rules are coming increasingly into the focus of national and transnational scholarship and the politics underlying it.
The international conference “Germany and France: Art Market and Art Collecting 1900–1945” at TU Berlin responds to these dynamics. The thematic emphasis is research into the art market and art collecting in national and transnational networks in Germany and France as well as how these networks relate to art and cultural policy from 1900 to 1945.
The conference is part of the Berlin Science Week 2018 as well as the first part of the German-French Research Programme 2018–2019 “Art Market and Art Collecting from 1900 to the Present in Germany and France”, organised by the Forum Kunst und Markt / Centre for Art Market Studies at TU Berlin and the Centre Georg Simmel at École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales in collaboration with the Deutsches Forum für Kunstgeschichte Paris.
