Italy in a Global Context

The focus on Italy in a global context aims to recast our understanding of Italian early modern art and its fortune by focusing on artistic developments occurring outside of the Italian peninsula and its urban centers.

In doing so, it challenges the paradigm of the centrality of artistic capitals and the subsequent reception of their breakthroughs in a subordinate periphery, proposing instead a pluralistic picture with a view to a global understanding. A particular point of focus of the section is Latin America and its idiosyncratic reinventions of the Baroque. It builds on previous research on the interactions between Rome and the Viceroyalty of Peru in the seventeenth century, as well as the Latin American actualization and renewal of German-language art theory and historiography in the twentieth century.
