CIHA 2012 in Nuremberg

33rd Congress of the International Committee of the History of Art
July 15th-20th 2012

The Challenge of the Object
Die Herausforderung des Objekts

>From July 15 to 20, 2012 the Germanisches Nationalmuseum is hosting the

33rd Congress of the International Committee of 
the History of Art in Nuremberg and invites art 
historians from all over the world to attend and 
discuss "The Challenge of the Object". The object 
and how it is perceived in art history is a 
question that is currently very highly charged, 
the result of increasing globalization and 
digitalization. Art and cultural historians from 
all over the world, from a vast cross-section of 
disciplines and fields of professional interest 
are called upon to discuss together the role and 
the theory of the object in art history. The 
topics are divided into 21 sections with up to 20 
talks each. The sections should enable a 
comparison to be made between the different 
viewpoints and methods. For that reason they are 
categorized according to how their questions on 
the object in art history are formulated. This 
should allow talks on different genres, epochs 
and countries to be brought together.

The congress will be rounded off with an 
extensive supporting program with excursions, for 
example to Documenta in Kassel, and a 
wide-ranging program for young academics. At the 
same time the Germanisches Nationalmuseum will be 
presenting the important special exhibition on 
"The Early Dürer".

The Call for Papers ends on April 30, 2011. From 
November 2011, registration for participation 
without a presentation is also possible.

Detailed descriptions of the individual sections 
as well as information on the congress and the 
Call for Papers can be found under
