Aus aller Herren Länder: biographies in Joachim von Sandrart’s Teutsche Academie

Exhibition: 9 December - 11 December 2010

From 9 to 11 December 2010, the Goethe-Universität Frankfurt am Main will be hosting an international conference on biographies in Joachim von Sandrart´s “Teutsche Academie” organised in collaboration with the Kunsthistorisches Institut in Florenz – Max-Planck-Institut.

Experts on artists from classical antiquity, Italy and the North have been invited to speak on a selection of individual biographies. Their findings will be discussed by a forum of Sandrart scholars in the hope of reaching a deeper understanding both of the biographical sections of the text itself and of its value as a primary source for contemporary research.


Goethe Universität, Frankfurt am Main, Campus Bockenheim and Campus Westend

Organised by the Kunsthistorisches Institut in Florenz – Max-Planck-Institut (Alessandro Nova) in collaboration with the Department of Art History of the Goethe-Universität , Frankfurt am Main (Thomas Kirchner)
