Porzellansammlung, June 13 – 14, 2018 Registration deadline: May 20, 2018
Registration is now open for “Porcelain Circling the Globe. International Trading Structures and the East Asia Collection of Augustus the Strong (1670–1733)”, hosted by the Porzellansammlung Dresden on 13-14 June 2018. Speakers include scholars from China, Japan, the Netherlands, France, and Germany.
Over two days, the conference will discuss the porcelain trade conducted by individual dealers working outside of the dominant trading companies in the 17th and 18th centuries. It will focus on private networks in and beyond Asia, and the emergence of collecting East Asian art in Europe. The conference will discuss the extent and importance of these private networks, and will debate the phenomenon of trading and collecting East Asian objects from both the traders’ as well as the collectors’ perspectives, with the purpose of investigating interactions between agents from different cultures and backgrounds.
