Internationale Tagung: Art history for artists: interactions between scholarly discourse and artistic practice in the 19th century, vom 7. bis 9. Juli 2016 in Berlin

Die International ausgerichtete Tagung will das Spannungsfeld zwischen künstlerischer und Praxis und Kunstwissenschaft im 19. Jahrhundert ausleuchten und spannt dabei den Bogen von provinziellen Kunstschulen über die Bedeutung der Museen für Kunstgeschichte und Kunstpraxis bis hin zur universitären Kunstgeschichte des Jahrhunderts.

The formation of art history as a discipline during the 19th century has been variously associated with the politics of national identity, a growing bourgeois public in search of cultural capital and the expanding art market. However, the role of art training, and art practitioners themselves in the shaping of art history remains unexamined. Courses in art history had been systematically introduced into the curricula of art and architecture academies since the late 18th century, and spaces of art education, were among the first institutional homes of the discipline, well before the establishment of autonomous university chairs.

How did the institutional framework of art education and exposure to the problems of artistic practice affect the historical study of art? How did scholars’ engagement with contemporary art evolve alongside the growing academic recognition of art history within the university? How did artists themselves react to the emergence of a community of professional specialists claiming control over art discourse? To what extent did practitioners propose parallel or counter discourses in their works, writings or teachings? This conference aims to explore the interactions and productive tensions between art practice and art scholarship in the 19th century.
