The four-yearly congress of CIHA (Comité International d'Histoire de l'Art), the international organization of art historians, was held this year in Nurember, Germany, bewteen 15th and 20th July. Several members of our Institute participated in some form in this important event. Lectures were delivered by László Beke under the title 'CIHA Object or Subject', and by Erzsébet Tatai under the title 'Re- and Dematerialization of the Object (of Art) – Through the Analysis of Hungarian Examples from the 21st Century'. In the poster section two of our colleagues were present. Borbála Gulyás presented a poster 'Transformation of a Manuscript by George Bocskay: Imitating Roman Epigraphy as Writing Model Book', and Lilla Farbaky-Deklava another entitled 'Maquette of the Church of Our Lady in Buda Castle: An Unrealized Plan Variant'. József Sisa was elected 'membre titulaire' by the General Assembly of CIHA, thus in the future he will represent Hungary in the organization.
