Symposium in Art History: Cross-border connectivity in Nordic–Baltic Art
in the late 19th and 20th centuries
This symposium explores a new and critical Nordic–Baltic research front
on cross-border relations and the artistic connectivity of the
Nordic–Baltic realm and relations to European neighbours, in the late
19th and 20th centuries. It focuses 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.
