10 Days Left For Submissions

This is a gentle reminder that there are only 10 days left to answer our Call for Papers for the forthcoming Eighth Graduate Workshop of the Russian Art & Culture Group!

The workshop with the topic The Problem of Religious Art in Modernity. Uses and Abuses of the Icon in Russia is the second one which will not be held in Bremen. We are already thankful to our colleagues of the Internationales Kolleg Morphomata at Cologne University.

From September 23rd to 25th (exact dates depend on the amount of submissions) the discussions of international junior and senior scholars will be joined by our keynote speaker, Professor George Pattison from Glasgow.

Please send an abstract of no more than 250 words along with a short biographical note of 100 words by May 15, 2020 to workshop@russian-art.net.

You will find all the necessary information in the Call’s pdf. However, please do not hesitate to contact the organizers of this workshop, Clemena Antonova and Ludmila Piters-Hofmann, using the email address above.

We are looking forward for your submissions!

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.

Art in the Time of Corona

Art in the Time of Corona

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!

But for now: Enjoy!
