Workshop Series

AIA session 2

Autochthonous Imagination Ateliers
From September to December, a series of workshops called Ateliers will take place at the UZH. This format will work as a diverse space in which indigenous societies, indigenous artists, and intellectuals from Latin America come together to listen about traditional knowledge, and their work in the territories to learn more about myths, stories, and how they deal with extractive practices, violence, and the destruction of nature.

International Conference

Art Across the Iberian World: Connecting Spanish Italy and Latin America

October 7-8

UZH, Rämistrasse 59, Auditorium RAA-G-01

For a long stretch of time, both Southern Italy—the Kingdoms of Naples and Sicily—and Latin America were entangled in the same colonial system. Still, art historians have discussed these entanglements largely independently. This conference seeks to bring together these two fields of study: on the one hand, that which explores the shared visual and material cultures between the Iberian Peninsula and Latin America, and, on the other hand, that which studies the artistic connections between Spain and Spanish Italy. The handful of studies that has attempted to bring these worlds closer have dealt with topics as varied as the travels of artists and artworks, the significance of various saints between these worlds, shared religious phenomena as well as relations in scientific culture. Building on this scholarship, the conference aims both at confronting such scattered approaches as well as exploring alternative accounts, thereby concentrating on their relevance for art and visual culture.
