Graduate Workshop Goes Online

Graduate Workshop Goes Online

The travelling restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic were affecting the workshop so immensely that we finally decide to move the forthcoming graduate workshop on The Problem of Religious Art in Modernity. Uses and Abuses of the Icon in Russia to the online realms!

So, our graduate workshop will be an online Zoom conference which we will host together with our colleagues of the “Eurasia in Global Dialogue” Program at the Institute for Human Sciences (IWM).

Since none of us would like to spend the whole day in front of the screen, we streched the program a little bit.

The workshop is now starting a day earlier. Our speaker will present their papers from October 14 to 16, 2020, from around 2 to 5 pm, Bremen and Vienna time (UTC+2 hours).

The participation is free for everyone, you just need to register in due time on the website of the IWM to receive the necessary information to access our Zoom meeting room.

The Story behind Our Logo

The Story behind Our Logo

Since 2018 the Russian Art & Culture Group has its own logo which you may see here and there on our website. Some participants of the workshops already guessed that this logo – which was created by our member Ludmila Piters-Hofmann – includes some recognizable elements.

You may now find out how the logo was created and what the individual elements represent.

Due to COVID-19 most of us are bound to home and some are sharing the products of their creative processes. We would like to draw your attention on some “adjusted” artwork of Russian nineteenth-century artists Alexander Ivanov, Karl Bryullov, Ilya Repin, and Viktor Vasnetsov. Apostrophe is presenting images of well-known Russian paintings and how they would look like during our times of social distancing.

Do you have any other interesting discoveries in this interesting times? Please share them with us either via e-mail or via facebook!
