Conference: “Narratives of American Art”

This international conference examines the different heuristic models that have been used to explain historical and contemporary American art scholarship and exhibitions in Germany. Speakers discuss five different narratives that have shaped German perceptions of American art: American exceptionalism, high/low art, visual culture, multiculturalism, and trans-nationalism. This event is organized by the Terra Foundation for American Art and the John F. Kennedy-Institute for North American Studies, with support from the German Association for American Studies.
