On 21 and 22 October 2019, the National Museum in Belgrade organized an international conference on Dutch prints in conjunction with the exhibition Netherlandish Prints from the Collection of the National Museum in Belgrade. The proceedings of the conference Beyond Boundaries. Conceptualizing Netherlandish Prints have now been published.
The conference approached Netherlandish printmaking as a phenomenon of early modern art, a highly mobile medium operating on the principles of aesthetic, social and culturological communication. In particular, it explored the multilayered significance of Netherlandish printed art from two points of view: the intermedial (i.e. within the common field of fine arts) and the social, where investigating the meaning of a print involves a much broader perspective.
Beyond Boundaries. Conceptualizing Netherlandish Prints is edited by Dragana Kovačić and Jasmina Novaković and is published by the National Museum in Belgrade. Contributions have been peer-reviewed by Gary Schwartz, Peter van der Coelen and Igor Borozan.
