Breaking Visual Traditions in Pre-Modernity: Primary Sources Workshop

In this workshop we seek to explore instances of deviation, split or departure from visual norms. Participants will engage in discussions based on focused presentations of primary sources that describe, explore or react to irregular visual expressions, or that in themselves embody such moments of visual rupture. The workshop encourages exploration of both images that surpass traditional visual norms and non-conformist visual practices. This includes actions such as handling objects in “wrong” ways, erecting monuments in unexpected locations, appropriating conventional visual forms for innovative content, and other similar practices that break with established visual traditions. The overarching goal is to foster a deeper understanding of historical instances of violation of visual standards.
