The Image of the Roma in Art History

The conference aims at discussing the image of the Roma in the history of art, in order to yield an overview from the earliest identified depiction of the Roma to the twentieth century. The conference examines the modes of representations developed by European artists to depict the Roma foreigners in European cities, first by the Northern German, and later the European Renaissance and Baroque art traditions; and it discusses the development of the specific iconographical types, in order to show theprocesses of differentiation, othering, demonization and abjectification in European visual history. The panels of the conference on the 19th and 20th century put a special emphasis on Central and Eastern Europe. We hope that this event will lead to a paradigmatic change in the research and interpretation of Roma representation in art.

The conference is organised by the Goethe-Institut Budapest, the Visual Art Section of RomArchive – Digital Archive of the Roma, the Research Group of Critical Theories at the Institute of Art History of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences and the European Roma Cultural Foundation. Conference Venue: Goethe-Institut Budapest (Ráday u. 58. Budapest) The language of the event is English. Presentations in German in Session 1 will be translated into Hungarian. For the conference program please click here

“Motherland and Progress” - A Concise History of Hungarian Architecture and Design 1800-1900

“Motherland and Progress” – the motto reflected the programme embraced by Hungary in the nineteenth century in its drive to define its identity and shape its future. It is most evident in architecture, which rose from slumbering provincialism to international brilliance. The greatest achievement was beyond doubt Budapest, evolving into a dazzling, world-class metropolis by the end of the century. The volume focuses not only on architecture, but also on the means by which the buildings were decorated and furnished, encompassing objects of representation and everyday life. The broader contexts of urban planning and garden design are also taken into consideration. Besides the traditional art historical approach, the topics are discussed from a sociological and cultural-anthropological angle. This is the most detailed survey yet of nineteenth-century Hungarian architecture and design in English, written by leading Hungarian experts. For ordering please click here.
