Research Seminar Series: “Shifting Images and Ideas of Europe’s East: An Art Historical Approach from the Margins”

2. Research Seminar: “An Encounter of the Opposites: Images of Russia in European Renaissance Writing and the Russian Responses”
Speaking of Europe often presupposes the existence of a stable unity of people with a common history, culture and identity. Yet it is not only the current political crisis that reveals major imbalances within the continent, where the gap between ‘West’ and ‘East’ looms particularly large. This series of research seminars offers the opportunity to read Europe's East from a historical perspective, in its relationship to other European regions, some of them (self-)declared as the center, as well as to the neighboring continent of Asia.

Dies tritt etwa mit Blick auf die Öffnung des Gegenstandsbereichs auf außereuropäische Objekte deutlich zutage. Im Zuge dieses Prozesses gilt es, sich folgendem Fragenhorizont zu stellen: Inwiefern ist das an mitteleuropäischen Artefakten erprobte Methoden- und Theorienrepertoire einer global ausgeweiteten Kunstgeschichte noch dienlich? Wie kann die Kunstgeschichtsschreibung vermeiden, vermeintlich längst überwundene koloniale Rhetoriken und Strategien zu reaktivieren? Auf welche Weise lässt sich ästhetische Alterität erfassen, ohne „Andersartigkeit“ zugleich kategorisch festzuschreiben? [more]
Wastework is an international, interdisciplinary conference on the materiality, spatiality, and processing of waste in the early modern workshop. It proposes to examine acts of disposal, displacement, removal, and abeyance – in short, the getting rid of unwanted things – and the consequences these carry for the study of early modern material culture.
