International Study Course
Drawings in Theory and Practice. Connoisseurship – Collecting – Curatorial Practice

Vienna, 22 – 26 November 2021
Organized by the Albertina and the Institute of Art History at the University of Vienna with generous support from the Wolfgang Ratjen Foundation

We are pleased to announce our 5th annual study course on drawings. The course is designed for doctoral students and early post-doc-researchers which are working in the field of drawings and are interested in exploring curatorial practices. The course offers the opportunity to discuss current research on the graphic arts and, at the same time, to gain insight into one of the most renowned collections of prints and drawings. The course is organized jointly by the Institute of Art History at the University of Vienna and the Albertina and is generously supported by the Wolfgang Ratjen Foundation.

Participants are expected to present aspects of their current research in a 30-minute paper. Together we will discuss relevant drawings in the Albertina and gain insight into different curatorial practices: conception and planning of exhibitions, publication of catalogues, conservation and marketing, collecting and provenance research.

Accommodation in Vienna will be covered as well as documented travel costs (economy flight, 2nd class train ticket) up to 400 Euros. The general course language is English, while individual papers can be presented also in German, Italian and French. Due to the present covid regulations in Austria, all participants must comply with the 3-G rules (tested, vaccinated, recovered).

The course is directed by Univ.-Prof. Dr. Sebastian Schütze. Applications, including cv, short description of the drawing related research project and a reference letter from a university professor, should be send by 30th September 2021 via e-mail to Stephanie Sailer:

Applicants will be notified by 10th October 2021.
