Art and Heritage in Central Europe

Call for Papers: “The Backstage View: A Mundane History of Collecting (1600-1918)” (Poznan, October 26th-27th, 2023)

Art and Heritage in Central Europe

The conference organised by the Faculty of Art Studies, Adam Mickiewicz University, Poznań, Poland, aims to explore the various aspects regarding the mundane site of the history of collecting. It intends to question the multitude of logistic, administrative, organisational, and managerial practices that contribute to the act of collecting and how they affect selling and buying artwork. It is interested in identifying and studying the elements that mark out the diverse and versatile apparatuses of collecting in specific cultural, social, and economic realities, both private and public. Changes in issues, paradigms, and availability are at the heart of the study.

Proposals (up to 250 words), along with a short biography (up to 200 words), have to be sent to camilla.murgia@unil.ch and mmencfel@amu.edu.pl by April 16th, 2023.

Convenors: Michał Mencfel, Adam Mickiewicz University Poznań, Camilla Murgia, Univeristé de Lausanne.
