Art Historiographies in Central and Eastern Europe An Inquiry from the Perspective of Entangled Histories

Descripción del proyecto

Periodización, estilo e influencia: nuevos conocimientos sobre artes historiográficas

La historia del arte es una ventana visual al pasado, la cual nos permite comprender cómo ha evolucionado la sociedad. El proyecto ArtHistCEE, financiado con fondos europeos, se centra en Europa central y oriental y ofrecerá un relato fragmentario de las historias del arte producidas entre 1850 y 1950 desde una perspectiva de historias entrelazadas. De este modo, el proyecto ofrecerá nuevos puntos de vista sobre la historia de la región y cuestionará la ocasional tendencia acrítica, descriptiva y nacionalista de las artes historiográficas de la región.

Objetivo

Our project proposes a fragmentary account of the art histories produced in present-day Poland, Hungary, Slovakia, Romania, Bulgaria and Serbia between 1850 and 1950, from an entangled histories perspective. We will look at the relationships between the art histories produced in these countries and the art histories produced in Western Europe. But, more importantly, we will investigate how the art histories written in the countries mentioned above resonate with each other, either proposing conflicting interpretations of the past, or ignoring uncomfortable competing discourses. We will investigate the art histories written between 1850 and 1950 because we are interested in how art history contributed to nation building discourses. Therefore, we will focus on those art histories that concur to nationalising the past. Our project is articulated around three crucial concepts – periodisation, style and influence – set in the context of relevant contemporary historiographies produced in Western Europe, and analysing the entanglements with competing historiographies in each of the countries considered. We will focus on two main issues: 1. How did Central and Eastern European art historians adopt, adapt and respond to theoretical and methodological issues developed elsewhere, and 2. What are the periodisations of art produced on the territory of Central and Eastern European countries; what are the theoretical and methodological strategies for conceptualising local styles; and how was the concept of influence used in establishing hierarchical relationships. Researching the conceptualisation of a theoretical framework that would accommodate the artistic production of the past will show the difficulties in dealing with a complex reality without simplifying and essentializing it along ideological lines. The research will also show that the three concepts that we focus on are not neutral or strictly descriptive, and that their use in art history needs to be reconsidered.
