Workshop – Mapping international circulations

 

Cartographier les circulations internationales / Mapping international circulations

2-days workshops on digital cartography, departing from the case of Biennials.

8 & 9 June 2017, École Normale Supérieure, 45 rue d’Ulm, Paris.
From 10 to 20 on Thursday, 10 to 17 on Friday.

 

Artl@s project in collaboration with MoDe(s) is organizing a two-days workshop on digital and spatial methodologies for historians (not only art historians) at the École Normale Supérieure (45 rue d’Ulm, Paris ). These two days intend to show how digital technologies can influence scientific results as well as teaching in the field of humanities, and to offer participants a practical training to the use of open-source programs.

This workshop will be based on historical data that has already been collected by the Artl@s team in catalogues of international exhibitions  such as biennials (Venice, São Paulo, Paris, Alexandria in Egypt) and Documenta in Kassel. At the same time, it will get the participants into issues raised by transnational history and the study of the international circulation of objects, persons, linguistic expressions and artistic reputations.
