Appel à contribution : “Dialogues Between Images and Texts”, The Athens Institute for Education and Research, Athènes, 8-11 juin 2020, date limite le 4 novembre 2019

This symposium considers how images and texts come into dialogue in the visual and the performing arts. Historically, the interest in the relation of the visual to the textual derives from the philosophical debates around ekphrasis and as to whether painting or poetry is more adequate in expressing thoughts and emotions (cf. Lessing’s Laocoon). Meanwhile, Da Vinci praises both, each medium excelling in its own way. In modern times, visual and textual juxtapositions become central...

Parution : Lorenzo Pericolo et Elisabeth Oy-Marra (dir.), Perfection, the Essence of Art and Architecture in Early Modern Europe, Turnout, Brepols, 2019

Whether a painting, a sculpture, or a building, works of art in early modern Europe must achieve the highest degree of perfection.

Appel à contribution : “L’amore, le armi, le stelle. Basinio da Parma and the Humanists at Sigismondo Malatesta’s Court”, Rimini, Museo della Città, 14-16 mai 2020, date limite le 4 novembre 2019

By the middle of the fifteenth century Rimini had become a major center of Italian humanism. The cultural patronage of the famous condottiere Sigismondo Pandolfo Malatesta (1417–1468), attracted numerous artists, writers, and scholars, who came to the city and created works for which Rimini is still widely known today. In spite of recently intensified research on this topic, various questions about the philosophical, literary and artistic output of this circle remain open. In particular, the...
