Summer semester 2017
10-17 September 2017
The excursion 'Peripheral Centre. Art in 14th and 15th Century Padua' examined the most important Paduan works of art - fresco cycles, bronze works and panel painting - to explore the art historical topos of 'centre' and 'periphery', the core of which is the idea of a genius artist personality - called from a 'centre' - and the teleological idea of epochs and their development. For this purpose, the works were to be analysed and discussed with regard to their commissioning and addressees, the social, political and intellectual context of their creation, function and reception, as well as the artist's influence and intentions.

What is the significance of photography in the age of digital media? Which positions of artistic photography are currently being exhibited? How political is artistic photography today? Such and similar questions occupied the excursion group that undertook a study trip to the 56th Venice Biennale "All the World's Future" as part of a seminar on artistic photography.
