Symposium: Cross-border connectivity in Nordic–Baltic Art in the late 19th and 20th centuries

Online symposium on cross-border relations and the artistic connectivity of the Nordic–Baltic realm in the late 19th and 20th centuries, 17-18 May, 2021.

This symposium presents a new and critical Nordic–Baltic research front on cross-border relations and circulations in Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Iceland, Lithuania, Norway, Sápmi (the land of the Sami) and Sweden, including interconnections with European neighbours. The invited scholars explore ideas that moves beyond “centre–periphery” models and ideas of aesthetic diffusion of innovation and the symposium will give an overview of state-of-the-art approaches to the artistic connectivity of the Nordic–Baltic realm in the late 19th and 20th centuries.

It is arranged by Department of Art History, School of Culture and Education, Södertörn University and the Swedish Institute, Paris, in cooperation with the Research group Artl@s at the École Normale Superieure and scholars at Nordic and Baltic universities and museums, and with support from ReNEW (Reimagining Norden in an Evolving World: An Ex­cel­lence Hub in Research, Education and Pub­lic Out­reach).
