Art and Heritage in Central Europe

Call for Papers: “Infrastructures of Trading and Transferring Art since 1900 (Workshop in Budapest, June 26–28, 2024)

Art and Heritage in Central Europe

KEMKI – Central European Research Institute for Art History (Budapest, Hungary) welcomes proposals of papers for an international workshop. Although art market studies as an academic field has become increasingly popular in the last decade, there has been little research that critically examines the actors, places, rules, and structures of this system. This workshop aims to explore the infrastructures through which artworks have been produced and exchanged for goods, money, services, and reputation since 1900.

They particularly welcome proposals that deal with transnational perspectives, uneven exchanges, differences or systems in centres and peripheries, dynamics of innovation and “belatedness,” selection and canon formation, including aspects of gender, diversity, and discrimination. Apart from emerging and senior scholars in academia, they also invite professionals in related fields. The workshop is part of the research initiative “(Un)mapping Infrastructures: Transnational Perspectives on Modern Art”, which aims to publish selected outcomes and contributions of the workshops in an edited series.

The workshop is organized by: Gregor M. Langfeld (University of Amsterdam/Open University, Netherlands), Kristóf Nagy (KEMKI – Central European Research Institute for Art History, Hungary), Lynn Rother (Leuphana University Lüneburg, Germany).

Please submit an abstract of max. 300 words and a 1–2 page CV to: artmarketsince1900@gmail.com by 31 January 2024. Speakers will be informed by 11 February 2024.
