18.01.2017 (18:15 - 19:45)

Die Vortragsreihe gibt einen Überblick zu den weltweiten Austauschprozessen und künstlerischen Positionen in einer entscheidenden Phase der Globalisierung und eröffnet damit neue theoretische und methodische Zugänge zur Epoche.

Abstract des Vortrags

Timurid-Ming exchanges fostered by rulers Shahrukh (r. 1409-1447) and Yongle (r. 1402-1424) again set in motion objects and people across Asia. Interactions between Iran and China are much better studied in the century before during Ilkhanid Mongol rule of Iran. A wide variety of textual sources and artworks reflect the complex nature of Timurid reception of Chinese art which was not only seen firsthand but also mediated through portable objects. The lecture examines Timurid attitudes and responses to a wide range of Chinese objects.
