‘Nordic Cosmopolitans’

9am, 8 January 2014, ARoS Aarhus Kunstmuseum, Denmark

This workshop brought 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 ranged 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).

This workshop was convened by Ingeborg Bugge (Aarhus University, Denmark) and Rosie Ibbotson (University of Canterbury, NZ).
