Uni TV-Recording: Doctoring Beauty. Beauty and Medicine in the Middle Ages and Early Modern Europe
This is the public presentation of our itinerant symposium, “Medicine, Beauty and the Body”, in which we discuss historical cultures of beauty alongside materials, texts and artifacts. We aim to explore historical continuities and changes in the knowledge and materials by bringing together experts working on the field from antiquity to the early modern period.
The symposium took place from September 24 to 28 in Innsbruck, Salzburg, and Vienna. It is a cooperation between the Museumsverband Kunsthistorisches Museum Wien / Schloss Ambras and the program “Figurations of Transition” of the inter-university cooperative “Science and Art” at the University of Salzburg and the Mozarteum University.
Christina Antenhofer (Salzburg), Montserrat Cabré (Cantabria), Irene Calà (Munich), Erin Griffey (Auckland), Timothy McCall (Villanova), Romana Sammern (Salzburg) and Katharina Seidl (Innsbruck) presented in a collective evening lecture on September 26 results from the itinerant symposium “Medicine, Beauty and the Body: Materials, Texts and Artifacts“.
