    Female artists in the classical age - illustration, painting, sculpture and engraving

    Comment ces artistes sont-elles désignées, et de quelle manière préfèrent-elles se nommer ? Le siècle hésite à se saisir d’expressions pour les qualifier. Quelles sont les conditions de travail et de vie de ces artistes ? De quelles façons apprennent-elles leur art, où peuvent-elles l’exercer et l’exposer, avec qui à leurs côtés ? Quelle est la réception de leur art dans les Salons et les journaux de l’époque, en France et en Europe ? En quelle réputation – nationale et internationale, bonne ou mauvaise – sont-elles ?

    Heraldry in Medieval and Early Modern State-Rooms

    Towards a Typology of Heraldic Programmes in Spaces of Self-Representation

    Heraldry was an ubiquitous element of state-rooms. Whether in palaces of kings and princes, castles of noblemen, residences of patricians, city halls or in cathedral chapters, heraldic display was a crucial element in  the visual programme of these spaces. Despite its omnipresence, however, heraldic display in state-rooms remains largely understudied so far. This workshop aims to explore these heraldic programmes in state-rooms in medieval and early modern Europe and to suggest an initial typology of this phenomenon.

    Building techniques in writings on architecture between Italy, France and the Low Countries

    Les techniques constructives dans les écrits d’architecture entre Italie, France et anciens Pays-Bas

    This conference focuses on the connection between architectural theory and construction techniques. The first part deals with the analysis of technical descriptions, their relationship with building practice, their rhetorical value, and their international circulation and adaptation. It comprises case studies from Italy, France, and the Low Countries. The second part approaches the same problem in a comparative perspective and takes the form of round-table discussions structured around three themes: the relationship between technical writings and construction practices, the literary aspects of technical digressions, and the translation and adaptation of Italian treatises.

    Art, hybridation and circulation in the time of the American empires (13th-17th centuries)

    El siglo XVI representó una época de grandes cambios y transformaciones que marcaron la vida política y económica del Viejo Mundo. Los europeos impulsaron una empresa mundial del saber que contribuyó a la creación de nuevas culturas y nuevos saberes, adaptadas a las circunstancias particulares de la interacción, que fueron reelaboradas por las poblaciones nativas bajo la influencia de las tradiciones locales. Uno de los ámbitos en los que puede apreciarse esta “mezcla” es en el campo artístico, donde la influencia de los motivos indígenas es incuestionable. En estas jornadas, se cuestionarán las formas híbridas que se producieron en el campo del arte con el contacto entre los imperios americanos e peninsulares así como la circulación de objetos, personas y saberes entre ambos lados del Atlántico. Tampoco se olvidarán las influencias del arte americano sobre Europa.

    Images of the courtier in Northern European art, 1500-1700

    This panel will address the image of the courtier in the art and architecture of northern European court societies – Germanic countries, Flanders, United Provinces, France and England. While the subject has been widely studied in Italian art history, notably around the key figure of Baldassare Castiglione, it has been less investigated in the study of Northern European art of the Early modern period. The figure of the courtier inspired rich and often contrasting interpretations in Northern European court societies. While perpetuating traditional court culture in France and Flanders, the courtier in England and the Germanic countries embraced emerging social paradigms of the Protestant reform. In societies lacking an official court such as the United-Provinces, the figure of the courtier was largely redefined. Discussions will focus on symbolic forms of the courtier in the visual arts as well as in other disciplines to which the notion of decorum is central such as architecture and the decorative arts.

    On the dynamics of production (Distraction/Interference – Resistance/Accident)

    In ordinary terms, the word production refers to an act of creation and its result, or to a process at the end of which there is a materialisation of some kind, or to the act of making something present. By productively interfering with this common idea of productionwe would like to work towards establishing different ways of thinking about this concept.

    Distraction and Interference as well as Resistance and Accident are exemplary categories of the unexpected moments that may or may not take place in the course of production. They remind us that production cannot be reduced to the momentum of "achieving a product". Rather, these categories help to reveal the physical presence of those who produce, the materiality of the objects involved and the unforeseen effects of the "product". Furthermore, they allow us to question the alleged linearity of the processes that form part of production. Thereby, Distraction, Interference, Resistance and Accident make us aware to what extent production involves a "lived" and "living" tension between the producer and what is being produced, between the subject and the world.
