Multiples in PRE-Modern Art

International symposium

Munich, Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität
Institut für Kunstgeschichte - Center for Advanced Studies, 7-8 November 2011

This symposium will explore the different facets and forms of the serial production of artefacts from antiquity to the nineteenth century. More specifically, it will focus on works of art that were made in virtually identical multiple versions using procedures that conferred a high degree of uniformity on them. Particular emphasis will be given to the process through which the making, provenance, sale, as well as context of pre-modern multiples affected their reception.
How, and in what measure, did the serial nature of works of art influence their reception? To what extent were authorship, context and processes of production important in shaping the cultural status of the artefacts made in more than one original?
