The conference looks at the Vienna World’s Fair as an intersection of processes and phenomena that contributed to Islamic art historiography. As the sesquicentennial is approaching, papers of twenty-two researchers from international and Austrian institutions will explore the Fair as space for exhibiting Islamic arts and architecture, for their commercial and artistic reception, and for setting scholarship in motion. The conference starts Thursday evening, November 18th with a keynote lecture and continues full day on Friday and Saturday November 19th –20th. The programme will be announced in early October.
