Exhibition in Rome: “La nave dei folli” by Patrizia Comand (until November 12th 2017)

The exhibition “La nave dei folli” (2013-2014) by Patrizia Comand, is inspired by the famous satyrical work “Das Narrenshiff” by Sebastian Brant (1494). The works will be shown at Palazzo Cipolla in Rome until November 12th 2017. A good opportunity to admire a contemporary interpretation of a work that has strongly influenced the iconography of justice over the centuries.

CONFERENCE: The Art of Law (Bruges, Groeningemuseum, 16-18 Jan 2017)


The Art of Law: Artistic Representations and Iconography of Law & Justice in Context from the Middle Ages to the First World War

In Bruges (Belgium), at the occasion of the art exhibition De Kunst van het Recht, an international conference on the topic of legal iconography is being organized at the Groeningemuseum on 16, 17 and 18 January 2017. The Bruges conference has multiple links to our Law and the Humanities courses. Amongst the organizers are two former teachers within the Rome Law and the Humanities program: professor Georges Martyn and PhD fellow Stefan Huygebaert, both from Ghent University. The conference’s Key Note Speaker will be dr. Carolin Behrmann, who is leading the Minerva Research Group The Nomos of Images at the Kunsthistorisches Institut in Florenz (Max-Planck-Institut). Several speakers at the Bruges conference have been fellows within this Nomos of Images research group. One of them, Felix Jäger, was the Law and the Visual teacher in our Law and the Humanities course in 2015.


An introduction on the conference as well as the final program, registration and practical details can be found on the conference websitetaolconference.wordpress.com
