Seminar reformART. Art and Image in the Modern Age: Research Challenges
The aim of the reformART Seminar is to discuss the importance of visual and material culture in the construction, transfer and reception, on a global scale, of concepts, discourses and ideas stimulated by the religious reforms of the Modern Age. It aims to contribute to understanding, in different eras, geographies and contexts, the way in which art and the image conformed to the new spirituality and the dynamics of evangelization in modernity.
Encouraging interdisciplinary approaches, in areas such as History, Art History, Music or Literature, it favors the application of exegesis and visual hermeneutics as starting points for the analysis of spaces and equipment, plastic forms and models of representation, in their multiple forms and declinations.
With two sessions each academic year, the reformART Seminar is aimed at presenting and critically debating the results of up-to-date and innovative research.
