Objects in the Contact Zone: The Cross-Cultural Lives of Things

One of the major challenges facing art history today is the issue of globalization with its cultural implications – both regarding retrospective historical narratives and contemporary methods. As scholarship and museum audiences alike are becoming more and more internationalized, a (self-) critical analysis of disciplinary standpoints seems more important than ever and is at the center of ongoing discussions within and beyond academia.

Starting December 1, 2011, the Kunsthistorisches Institut in Florenz – Max-Planck-Institut will establish a Max-Planck-Research Group whose aim is to contribute differentiated epistemic viewpoints to this discussion.
