Tri-lateral conference: “Images in Action” (Revolts and visual cultures in early modern Europe, III)

Our next tri-lateral conference (atelier trilatéral) at Villa Vigoni (IT) from 4th June to 7th June 2018 will cover different aspects of early modern “images in action”. The participants from Germany, Italy, France and the Netherlands will share examples of the performative usage of early modern imagery and analyse common patterns.
