Baltic Art Histories: Roles, References, Relations

What is singular and what is plural in Baltic art histories? Which questions are raised and how are they solved by art historians? What kind of re- and pre-ferences do art histories make? What are the roles that art histories assume in inter- and cross-disciplinary projects, networks, and every-day realities? What voices do Baltic art histories have locally, regionally, and globally? (Or are they reserved to observing and listening?) How do art histories respond to or shape research policies? What are professional and civic priorities of art historians? These and similar questions usually addressed during breaks of scholarly conferences and sometimes noted in assessment drafts, call for in-depth discussion with an aim at identifying disciplinary roles, bonds, outputs, challenges, expectations, and potentials. Taking this inside-out format, the conference focuses on Baltic art histories as practised and reflected by art historians.
