IV coupDefouet International Congress on Art Nouveau
“The Art Nouveau Movement and National Identities”
Barcelona, 29 June to 2 July 2023
The Art Nouveau European Route is convening the IV coupDefouet International Congress on Art Nouveau, which is jointly organised by Barcelona City Council and Barcelona University and is to be held in Barcelona from 29 June to 2 July 2023.
The main strand of the fourth edition of this coupDefouet Congress intends to address new perspectives on the Art Nouveau movement in relation to national identities (art, society and thought). The coincidence in time of constructing national identities is cause for analysis and thought from a variety of perspectives.
The second strand focuses on the decorative programmes of buildings, in addition to linking these to the restoration initiatives that have made it necessary to recover 19th-century techniques and trades. The third strand is dedicated to Lluís Domènech i Montaner, to mark the centenary of his death, and Art Nouveau around the world, exploring the influences received and mastery exercised by this architect throughout the world. Finally, the fourth strand of the programme is the section on research and doctoral theses in progress, which encourages doctoral students and senior researchers to share their analyses and opinions.
The final deadline for submissions is 15 November 2022
