Lieu : université de Gand, Belgique.

This one-day workshop on early modern cultures of collecting aims to bring together approaches from the domains of art history, the history of science, and material culture studies. Of particular interest are the processes through which collected objects became sources of artisanal, artistic, or scientific knowledge and innovation. Users and beholders of collections were invited to observe, investigate, depict, and question individual objects and their interrelationships, and as such, collections could become ‘catalysts of knowledge’.
