“The Master of …”: creating names for art history and the art market

The value of a painting is influenced above all by the artist who created it and his reputation. Painters nowadays are easy to identify and are used to signing their artworks. But what about those whose names have not survived the test of time? Based on hedonic regressions and price indexes, this paper focuses on a particular subset of anonymous artists labelled with so-called provisional names (“The Master of …”), and contributes to the understanding of art valuation and art brands on the auction market. »

CFP: Art Market and Art Collecting (Berlin/Paris, Nov 18/Mar 19)

ART MARKET AND ART COLLECTING FROM 1900 TO THE PRESENT IN GERMANY AND FRANCE

German-French Research Programme
Berlin, Germany, 8–10 November 2018
Paris, France, 11–13 March 2019

Deadline: Sep 14, 2018

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 colonial rule of the past are coming increasingly into the focus of national and transnational scholarship and the politics underlying it.

The 2018–2019 German-French Research Programme organised by the Forum Kunst und Markt/Centre for Art Market Studies of the Technische Universität Berlin and the Centre Georg Simmel of the Paris-based École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales in cooperation with the Deutsches Forum für Kunstgeschichte Paris responds to these dynamics.

CFP: Connoisseurship in Contemporary Art Research (Helsinki, 29-30 Nov 18)

Helsinki, Finland
November 29 – 30, 2018

Deadline: May 28, 2018

In recent years the field of art research has become wider and polymorphous. There are at least two reasons for this. The first concerns the development and strengthening of artistic research in art academies since the late 1990’s. Today artistic research has become an umbrella term that covers all kinds of art research, especially research that concerns contemporary art.

The other reason is a consequence of structural changes in the universities and their curricula. Through these changes traditional disciplines have been merged into one another, transformed or constituted together with nearby disciplines. At the same time, practically-oriented and specific study programs that serve working life, for example curatorial studies, have become more general and increased in numbers within universities. Amongst these developments there have also appeared changes in methodologies and theoretical apparatus. Continue reading “CFP: Connoisseurship in Contemporary Art Research (Helsinki, 29-30 Nov 18)”

CFP: High & Low (Paris, 27 Oct 2018)

Symposium “High and Low”

Call for papers

Paris, INHA, October 27, 2018
Deadline: Jun 11, 2018

Marges n°29

In recent times, the traditional distinction between “high” and “low” art forms appears to be quite old fashioned. One has the impression, however, that some implicit hierarchies remain, regarding the division between “authentic” art and the rest —even when artistic merits’ scales are contested in different contexts. It has to do, among other things, with the common understanding of the notion of “art” itself, seen in laudatory terms (Schaeffer; 1996), a quality that enhances ordinary artefacts and rescues them from their usual and trivial aspect. Indeed, some “professionals”—aestheticians or art critics— have often the task of classifying art products, following the idea that they should or should not be called art. The question of merit, regarding the arts, has to do with the promulgation of aesthetic or artistic judgments, as well as moral ones. At the same time, specialists don’t seem to decide or deliberate solely over philosophical discussions; their activity has also consequences, directly or indirectly, on the repartition of “precious resources” of all kinds (Becker; 1982): concert halls, museum spaces, funding, grants, positions, etc. Continue reading “CFP: High & Low (Paris, 27 Oct 2018)”

CFP: Art for the People? Questioning the Democratization of the Art Market – Second TIAMSA Conference (Vienna, 27-29 Sept, 18)

The art world and the market have traditionally been the domain of the elites and have thrived on exclusivity. However, the art world has arguably become much more democratic in recent years thanks to the digital revolution, the inclusion of emerging economies in the world art market system, and the vastly improved access to art and information. The price histories of works of art can nowadays easily be reconstructed using online databases; the threshold for art buying is significantly lowered by online sales platforms; and new buyers in emerging economies are making the art market much less Western-oriented. Moreover, an ever broader range of artworks in different price categories has put (fine) art within reach of the middle classes across the globe. At the same time, art institutions such as museums are under tremendous pressure to be less exclusive. Some of these democratizing tendencies are of course not new. For instance, publishing houses in Europe started disseminating prints on a massive scale already in the sixteenth century, thereby enabling larger segments of the population to acquire images.
