Colloque : « Contact: Transcultural Techniques and Metaphors of Imprinting », Berlin, Insitut für Kunst- und Bildgeschichte, 30-31 Mai 2023

On 30 and 31 May, 2023, the Insitut für Kunst- und Bildgeschichte hosted an international conference devoted to the theme of imprint. The conference explored the technical and metaphorical implications of imprints, casts, seals and other types of reproductions made by physical contact between two bodies.

The conference, organised by Stefano de Bosio, Kathleen Christian, and Ralph Dekoninck, was made possible by a generous grant from the Thyssen Stiftung and was part of the activities of the international research network Logiques du négatif.
