  • 25 June to 26 June 2017 Formgebung im Nationalsozialismus - Die Auseinandersetzung mit der bildenden Kunst zur Zeit des Nationalsozialimus hat sich
    vor allem auf die Themen "Entartete Kunst", Kunstraub, Enteignung und Restitution, Große Deutsche Kunstausstellung sowie auf das Medium der Großplastik und auf Künstler- und Werkbiographien konzentriert. Die Forschung zur angewandten Kunst hat außer in Fallstudien nur selten Beachtung gefunden (Amt 'Schönheit der Arbeit', Deutsche Warenkunde etc.), Kunsthandwerk ist weitgehend unter der Aufmerksamkeitsschwelle geblieben. Analysen, die beide künstlerischen Gestaltungsaufgaben verknüpfen, sind in der Forschung die Ausnahme, obgleich oftmals behauptet wurde, daß die staatlicherseits propagierte Kunst allenfalls in die Kategorie Handwerk falle.

  • 26 June to 29 June 2017 2017 Annual General Meeting of ICOM Costume Copmmittee will be held in London, England, from 26 – 29 June, 2017 at the London College of Fashion, 20 John Prince’s Street, London, W1G 0BJ.
    Registration for the meeting should be done through brownpapertickets as we did for the Milan Triennial. The
    registration fee is 100 GBP/115 Euros/120 USD and should be paid by 1 June 2017. The access url is http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/2721993 You can also go to the brownpapertickets site this way: <icomcostumecommittee.brownpapertickets.com>
    Registration through brownpapertickets will be available from 2 December 2016. As with the other meetings, subventions are available to members. Please see the application information on page 7 of the September 2016 Newsletter or on the Costume Committee Website http://network.icom.museum/costume/
    CALL FOR PAPERS
    The theme of the meeting is "The Narrative Power of Clothes." and we would like to have the abstracts submitted
    by 15 February 2017. We are looking at this theme very broadly, so it could be as much about the conservation story behind a garment, or the planning of an exhibition, as the story of one individual object.  It might provide a nice echo of Orhan Pamuk's call to concentrate on small and personal stories made in his speech at the Milan meeting. Some of you who had prepared papers for Bangkok may find this a suitable theme, while others may wish to save those presentations for an Asian meeting such as the Kyoto Triennial in 2019.
    Please send the abstracts to me at
    jdruesed@kent.edu by 15 February 2017.
  • 28 June to 30 June 2017 8 th Annual International Conference, We invite academics, professionals, cultural practitioners and those with a scholarly interest in popular culture to send a 150 word abstract and 100 word bio by March 31, 2017.

Burnham (1911-2004), internationally renowned textile scholar and member of the Order of Canada (1985).  Burnham was in the vanguard of the generation of early 20th century curators who made textiles and costume a field of valid scholarly research by finding out how and why objects are made in particular ways, what they meant when produced and what they mean to us today.

  • 8 to 10 June 2017 7. Berner Forschungscamp - Angewandte Künste - Universität Bern Institut für Kunstgeschichte Abteilung Geschichte der Textilen Künste Bern Schweiz
    Deadline Call for papers: 31 March 2017
    Ab dem 18. Jahrhundert brachte die Ausbildung des Geniebegriffs und die Autonomisierung der Kunst eine Unterscheidung zwischen den sogenannten „reinen“ bzw. „hohen“ Künsten (Malerei, Skulptur, Architektur) und den „dienenden“ oder auch „minderen“ Künsten (Gold- und Silberschmiedekunst, Elfenbeinschnitzerei, Keramik, Möbel, Textil) mit sich. Diese Trennung wirkt sich bis heute gravierend auf den Gegenstandsbereich der akademischen Kunstgeschichte aus. Noch immer bringt die kunsthistorische Forschung den Werken der angewandten Kunst nur marginales Interesse entgegen, wenngleich diesen Objekten in ihren historischen Kontexten, und zwar in der höfischen wie bürgerlichen Rezeption, ein ausserordentlich hoher Rang zugemessen wurde.
    Für die Etablierung der universitären Auseinandersetzung mit den angewandten Künsten vom frühen Mittelalter bis in die Gegenwart setzt sich die 2009 am Institut für Kunstgeschichte eingerichtete Abegg-Stiftungs-Professur für die Geschichte der Textilen Künste (Prof. Dr. Birgitt Borkopp-Restle) ein.
    Im Fokus von Forschung und Lehre stehen die materiellen und technisch-handwerklichen Eigenschaften der angewandten Künste sowie deren spezifische Verwendung, Funktion und Bedeutung in künstlerischen, historischen und politischen Zusammenhängen. Brückenschläge zu den aktuellen Diskursen der Geisteswissenschaften zur „materiellen Kultur“, zum „Kulturtransfer“, zu Sammlungspraxis und Inszenierung sowie zu den Konzepten „Raum“ und „Performanz“ werden dabei explizit gesucht und in interdisziplinären Veranstaltungen fruchtbar gemacht. weitere Infos:

  • 11 to 14 May 2017 Offenbach am Main (D) - Designkritik - Wie kaum eine andere kreative Praxis ist das Design mit dem gesellschaftlichen, politischen und wirtschaftlichen Alltag verwoben. Technologischer Wandel, soziale Umwälzungen oder globale Krisen berühren das Design und fordern unaufhörlich Neubestimmungen heraus.
    So ist das Fach aktuell von Diskussionen brennender Themen wie Klimawandel, Ressourcenknappheit und Verteilungsgerechtigkeit geprägt. Ob Produkt-, Industrie-,
    Kommunikations- oder Modedesigner, ob Designberater oder Designaktivist, Designer reflektieren ihre Rolle innerhalb von Industrie, Warenkultur und Medien, probieren ihre Aufgabenbereiche und Arbeitsansätze umzumünzen.

  • 23 to 26 March 2017 Fashioning the Unconventional Victorian: Conduct, Costume, Coiffure, Baltimore (USA)- contact: joellenm@bu.edu - https://www.cfplist.com/nemla/Home/S/16430
    This panel examines how fashion – original, unusual, peculiar, or even outlandish – preoccupied the Victorian cultural imagination. Papers might investigate eccentric fashion’s role in specific genres; its portrayal in the Victorian periodic press, advertising, or conduct manuals; the bachelor girl’s or the dandy’s nonconformity in attire; dress as gender or status markers; how costume determines, camouflages, or liberates; the fin-de-siècle aesthete’s couture; ways the outré became a normatively modish for the middle-class Victorian consumer.
  • 24 to 25 March 2017 New Perspectives on Parisian Haute Couture, from 1850 until today
    This conference is organized by the Institut National de l’Histoire de l’Art (INHA), the Institut Français de la Mode (IFM) and the Seminar on Dress History (“Histoire de la mode”) at the Institut d’Histoire du Temps Présent (IHTP-CNRS).
    This conference seeks to reassess the history of Haute Couture by taking into consideration its inherent contradictions: the tensions between couture as both commerce and art; couture’s relationship with ready-to-wear and mass produced clothing; and contemporary questions relating to industrialization, “fast fashion,” and the impact of the digital on the artisanal.

    Clothing and dress are often interpreted as forms of literal, metaphorical or psychic protection; from a suit of armour, to a hockey player’s padding, a heavy wool coat, to a businessperson’s suit. The symposium seeks to ask what does clothing as protection mean in the context of contemporary society.
    Keynote Speaker: Dr. Fataneh Farahani, Associate Professor, Department of Ethnology and Gender Studies, Stockholm University, Sweden
