Scenography and Art History – Visual Culture Seminar


You are warmly welcome to join our visual culture seminar. Scenography and Art History (Bloomsbury 2021) is a pioneering anthology exploring the complex relationship between the broad academic domain of art history and new approaches to scenography studies.

Date: 21 Sept 2021

Time: 1 PM-3 PM (13.00-15.00, Stockholm time)

Place: Zoom

First, the editors, Astrid von Rosen and Viveka Kjellmer, will introduce the volume, and some of the authors will talk about their individual contributions. The parallel publication of ground-breaking special scenography and art history issue of Journal of Art History will also be presented. Second, the seminar invites discussion on the new publications, in relation to post-qualitative approaches and the performative research paradigm (Østern 2021).

The Journal of Art History special issue (Vol 90, Issue 2, 2021) is available here:
