Empty Spaces in the Graphic Arts – The Function, Aesthetics, and Meaning of Unmarked Surface
Workshop at the Kunsthistorisches Institut in Florenz – Max-Planck-Institut
Florence, 18-19 January 2018
That drawing and print illustration are constituted by the presence and absence of marks, while compositional structure emerges out of their correlation and balance: this is probably the simplest way of defining these genres. Within this basic condition, the interplay of form and non-form does not necessarily lend the blank sheet a subordinate role with respect to the drawn line. The purpose of the workshop is to address the forms and functions of this unmarked space in the graphic arts of the Early Modern period.
The two-day event offers the possibility to develop a 20-minute presentation in German, Italian, or English on these and other themes concerning the technical, aesthetic, and theoretical empty spaces in the graphic arts of the Early Modern period. In addition there will be an opportunity to select objects for view in a collective working conversation at the Gabinetto dei Disegni e delle Stampe degli Uffizi.
