3D Workshop in Marburg

Digital Representations of Space. Baroque Art in the Context of Current Approaches of the "Spatial Humanities"

A Workshop to Conclude the Pilot Project "Ceiling Painting and 3D," organized by the Corpus of Baroque Ceiling Painting in Germany (CbDD) and the German Documentation Center for Art History - Bildarchiv Foto Marburg

  • Location: Marburg, Forschungszentrum Deutscher Sprachatlas 
  • Date: April 3 and April 4, 2017
  • Organizers: Stephan Hoppe, Hubert Locher, and Ute Engel (CbDD) 

Ceiling painting is an art that unfolds in space. Thanks to current digital techniques, comprehensive media-supported representation and analysis of its spatial aspect are now possible. This marks new territory in many respects, even within the long-term research project Corpus of Baroque Ceiling Painting in Germany in the Academy Program. Initial results were achieved in 2015/16 with the digital, high-resolution spatial recording of key interior spaces in the baroque Neue Residenz in Bamberg. The Corpus of Ceiling Painting (CbDD) is funded by the Union of German Academies of Sciences and Humanities and supervised by the Bavarian Academy of Sciences. This workshop aims to present and contextualize the project's previous considerations and experiences within the current scientific discourse. The program's goal is to facilitate discussions on various aspects of 3D applications by CbDD staff, collaborators, and invited experts. Additionally, technically and methodologically related projects will be discussed to establish an international context.

We would like to present our previous considerations and experiences to a group of experts and place them within the context of current scientific discourse. Therefore, we would like to invite you to a two-day workshop on April 3 and 4, 2017, in Marburg.

Below you will find the preliminary program, which aims to enable discussions on specific aspects of our previous 3D applications among CbDD staff, our collaborators, and invited experts. Additionally, technically and methodologically related projects will be discussed to establish an international context.

We are happy to assist you in finding accommodation, although we regret that we are unable to cover any expenses.

We would be delighted to welcome you as a discussant to this workshop in Marburg!

Stephan Hoppe, Hubert Locher, and Ute Engel
