Art and Heritage in Central Europe
Call for Papers for an international conference “Cultural heritage? Territorial and national view on the monuments of Bohemia in the 19th and early 20th centuries”, to be held on February 27–28, 2023 in the Institute of Art History, Czech Academy of Sciences (ÚDU), Prague.
The conference is particularly interested in the conceptual basis and object selection in monument inventories. The treatment of individual historical periods, certain art genres, specific styles or building types provides information about preferences and orientation in monument conservation. To what extent was the view of the social and cultural diversity of cultural assets overlaid by interests related to the present, what role did national priorities in the culture of remembrance play in object selection and art historical qualification? The gain of this question lies in the recognition of the complexity of monument connotations in the formation of conceptual and foundations of monument preservation.
The 20-minute lectures will be about the view of cultural heritage in the 19th and early 20th centuries. In addition to contributions on Bohemia, comparative examples from elsewhere are very welcome. Conference languages will be English and German.
Please submit your abstract of 250 words as well as a short biographical note by August 31, 2022 to the organizers at firstname.lastname@example.org / email@example.com
