XVth Baroque Summer Course

The XVth Baroque Summer Course 2014 at the Stiftung Bibliothek Werner Oechslin in Einsiedeln, Switzerland, will take place from June 16-20 and be dedicated to the exploration of the Baroque and Neobaroque in the Spanish and Portuguese world, 16th-21st century. It is organized in collaboration with the University of Zurich and the Federal University of São Paulo and supported by the Getty Foundation Los Angeles and the Swiss Academy of Humanities and Social Sciences.

The workshop aims at mapping current research on the Baroque in the Portuguese and Spanish world and its modern and postmodern reception. The Baroque, as a seemingly universal stylistic phenomenon, connecting the early modern, the modern, and the contemporary periods, shall be analyzed as a case and model of globalization of art and art history. A transcultural approach to the Baroque covers the cross-cultural impact of its style, the intercultural and local differentiation of its forms and meanings, its function as a medium of cultural “hybridization” and “amalgamation”, and way of national identity building. The workshop questions to the alleged historical transcendence and universality of the Baroque style, as established by late 19th century art history, and aims at analyzing the ensuing ideological and aesthetic constructions of history by the means of Baroque style in Iberian world at large. Both, case studies and theoretical contributions shall be addressed and discussed.

Possible topics of discussion include:

How are the local modernities constructed historiographically and artistically by referring to national and international forms of the Baroque?

Which terms and methods are needed for describing the metamorphoses and migrations of the Baroque from a transcultural and transhistorical perspective?

What are the chances and limits of a transcultural comparativism?

What are the institutional, political, and economic parameters of a transcultural art phenomenon?

What kind of relations can be drawn between case studies and more general historical narratives and theoretical models?

Which narratives do we need for describing non-linear cultural processes?

How do we deal with modernist notions of authorship and originality in a global context?

How universal are the Baroque academic categories and hierarchies of genre, medium, and material?

Which are artistic and theoretical agents in a global Baroque discourse?

Which are the visualisations of artistic geography emerging in different periods and areas?

How did Modernism and Postmodernism change and use the notion of the Baroque?

How can recent discussions about emotions, materiality, and space be implemented in the field transcultural art history?
