Conferenza

AC(H)E Matinée with Johannes Krause: Archaeoscience and Art Histories in Dialogue

Plague apparatus from a lazaretto in Venice; a machine for disinfecting letters and papers«, Wellcome Collection

The AC(H)E Matinée is the first lecture of a series organized by the project AC(H)E: Art Histories, Catastrophes, Heritage, Ecologies of the Department Wolf. In a dialogue between Art History and other disciplines from the Humanities and Sciences, the lectures search for joint, or multi-layered insights into the historical dynamics of catastrophes on a local to global scale, while considering in particular relationships between image production, sociopolitical power dynamics, the transformation of spatial orders, and cultural responses to catastrophes. The first speaker is Johannes Krause, Director at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Leipzig. He will present his research on historic and prehistoric epidemics, with a particular emphasis on an entirely new spectrum of information that genetic evidence from anthropological collections and archaeological excavations can yield.
