    Conference, symposium - History

    From professions to corporatism in Brabant cities (Middle Ages - 20th century)

    Van ambachten tot corporatisme in de Brabantse steden (middeleeuwen – 20ste eeuw)

    Le colloque s’intéresse aux conceptions que les corporations de métiers ont propagé jadis, en dehors du champ strictement matériel de leur activité de production. On songe au souci du ‘bien commun’, à la moralité, à la protection des veuves et des orphelins des membres, à la place des confrères pauvres, aux activités dévotionnelles et religieuses, à la transmission de connaissances et à la formation, aux manifestations communau-taires dans l’espace public et à une sociabilité liée au groupe professionnel.

    Study days - History

    Opening the workshop

    A century of artist workshops in Belgium (1830-1930)

    Cette première journée d’études intitulée « Ouvrir l’atelier » est organisée conjointement par des chercheuses de l’Universiteit Gent et de l’Université libre de Bruxelles, qui ont fait des ateliers un de leurs objets de recherche et d’enseignement en histoire de l’art, en architecture, en littérature et en géographie. La journée abordera dans leur complexité les liens tissés entre les artistes, leurs pratiques et leurs espaces de travail, et l’inscription de ceux-ci dans leur environnement, à travers le prisme des ateliers en Belgique. En adoptant un regard historicisé – un siècle durant lequel le statut des artistes n’a cessé d’évoluer – nous souhaitons poser la question de la construction matérielle et symbolique, et de l’occupation de lieux pensés comme ateliers ou redéfinis comme tels, et de leur mode d’intégration dans la ville.

    Francis I and the Artists of the North (1515-1547)

    As an extention of the events of 2015 celebrating the 500th anniversary of the accession of Francis I (1 January 1515) and the victory at Marignan (13-14 September 1515), the symposium will focus on the ties between the "grand roy Françoys" and the North. Whereas the exchanges between Francis I and Italy have attracted much attention, the King’s relations with the old Southern Netherlands, as rich and complex, have not been carefully studied. The symposium "Francis I and Artists of the North (1515-1547)" aims to fill this gap by considering the interest of the King of France in artists and musicians from the old Southern Netherlands and their works.

    Conference, symposium - Religion

    When a religion comes to an end… Political and social factors in the demise of religions

    Ce colloque analysera les facteurs politiques et sociaux qui provoquent ou accompagnent la disparition d’une religion. L’aire géographique est mondiale et la chronologie la plus étendue possible. Il s’agira tant d’accorder la parole à des spécialistes étrangers de niveau international que de donner l’occasion à des chercheurs locaux de présenter leurs recherches. Le colloque sera axé sur l'étude des mécanismes observables lorsqu'une religion se termine. Que cette fin soit violente ou spontanée, une série de questions semblables se posent qui pourront faire l'objet des communications.

    Dealer, collector, critic, publisher…: The « animateur d’art » and his multiples roles

    Pluridisciplinary research of these disregarded cultural mediators of the 19th and 20th centuries

    The first goal of our symposium is to enlighten the role of the animateur d’art in the development of the arts. We hope that this scientific gathering would help us specify this first formula of the cultural actor: “The animateur d’art is an amateur who actively participates in the defense of the arts and in the stimulation of the artistic creation in a certain period. He puts his numerous networks to work in order to spread ideologies and aesthetics through the cultural environment and the society. He is a key figure positioning himself as a mediator between the different art worlds – the plastic arts as well as between the different agents of the cultural environment. His work consists in building bridges between the artists and his own cultural environment in order to ease the reception of the works and to promote a peculiar aesthetics”.
