Multiples in PRE-Modern Art

Internationales Symposium unter Leitung von Dr. Walter Cupperi (LMU Research Fellow).

07.11.2011 – 08.11.2011

This symposium will explore the different facets and forms of the serial production of artefacts from antiquity to the eighteenth century. More specifically, it will focus on works of art that were made in virtually identical multiple versions using procedures that conferred a high degree of "uniformity". The symposium can be seen as an attempt to replace the category of "aura" with more appropriate critical tools, as well as assess the extent to which the production history influenced the early reception of pre-modern works of art.

Speakers: Miranda Marvin (Wellesley College, Wellesley), Andreas Grüner (Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität, München), Beate Fricke (University of California, Berkeley), Urte Krass (Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität, München), Christopher J. Nygren (University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia), Susanne Kubersky (Bibliotheca Hertziana - Max-Planck-Institut für Kunstgeschichte, Rom), Claudia Kryza-Gersch (Kunsthistorisches Museum, Wien), Marjorie Trusted (Victoria and Albert Museum, London)., Malcolm Baker (University of California, Riverside), Charlotte Schreiter (Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin), Frank Fehrenbach (Harvard University, Cambridge, MA), Matthias Krüger (Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität, München), Birthe Rieger (Kunsthochschule der Universität Kassel)
