Nordic Cosmopolitans: art and internationalism in Scandinavia and Finland at the ‘long fin-de-siècle’

This workshop brings together academics and curators to discuss the most recent scholarship on art and internationalism in Scandinavia and Finland at the ‘long fin-de-siècle’ (c.1870-1920).

Topics range from the Pre-Raphaelite influence on Danish painting, to neo-classicism in Finnish architecture, Scandinavian artists in Paris, Scandinavian colonial visual culture, and an inside perspective on the recent exhibition Nordic Art: The Modern Breakthrough (Munich and Groningen, 2012-13). The workshop is convened by Ingeborg Bugge (Aarhus University, Denmark) and Rosie Ibbotson (University of Canterbury, Aotearoa New Zealand), in collaboration with the Internationalism and Cultural Exchange research network (ICE).

Speakers include: Charlotte Ashby, Åsa Bharathi Larsson, Ingeborg Bugge, Jan Cox, Hannah Heilmann, David Jackson, and Vibeke Röstorp.
