Title: New Perspectives on (the Presentation of) Japanese Art I
Format: in person
Date: 7 December 2023
Time: 10:00 to 17:00
Organized by: The Heinz Kaempfer Fund and the International Institute for Asian Studies, Leiden, Netherlands
The Heinz Kaempfer Fund and the International Institute for Asian Studies are proud to present the first seminar of a biennial series of seminars on Japanese art. With the New Perspectives series we aim to demonstrate that the study of Japanese art is very much alive and part of a global discussion. We especially invite students and (young) scholars to participate in this event!
Like the manifold aspects of art itself, the study of art has always reflected the mood, issues and questions of its times. During the past few decades immense shifts and changes have taken place, not only within artistic explorations and processes, but also in the attitudes and outlooks of scholars, curators, critics, policymakers and those involved in the art market. Hitherto suppressed voices are heard, uncomfortable truths are revealed, long-cherished standpoints are abandoned, different gazes are followed into new directions. These developments also reverberate within the study of Japanese art and have repercussions for the way in which Japanese art is presented and displayed.
Registration required for the event.
