Nordic cosmopolitans

This workshop brings together academics and curators to discuss the most recent scholarship on art and internationalism in Scandinavia at the 'long fin de siecle' (ca. 1870-1920).

Topics range from the Pre-Raphaelite influence on Danish painting, to neo-classicism in Finnish architecture, Scandinavian artists in Paris, Scandinavian colonial visual culture, and an inside perspective on the recent exhibition Nordic Art: The Modern Breakthrough (Munich and Groninger, 2012-13). The workshop is convened by Ingeborg Bugge (Aarhus University, Denmark) and Rosie Ibbotson (University of Canterbury, NZ), in collaboration with ICE.

Venue: ARoS Aarhus Kunstmuseum, Denmark.
