Clothing and Images from Renaissance and Early Baroque (https://www.gnm.de/en/exhibitions/sonderausstellungen-rueckblick/in-fashion-clothes-and-pictures-from-the-renaissance-and-early-baroque/)

This workshop takes place within the framework of the international research project of the GIS-Acorso. Based on topics and exhibits from the exhibition, it addresses questions concerning the significance of objects, materiality and the potential of early modern age dress from a cultural-historical perspective. Issues of body and gender history as well as the relation between image and object will be central. The workshop is designed as an open discussion on topics regarding the local exhibition which will be initiated by short introductory notes.
