Conference: The art of preserving culture (14.-15.11.2019)
“The art of preserving culture”
At the same time the closing conference (fourth conference) of the international team led by Adelheid Krah ‘En route to a shared identity. Sources on the history of Central Europe in the Digital Age’.
The international team, whose members are renowned scholars working at universities and archives in research and teaching in Austria as well as in neighbouring countries of Austria, has existed since 2014 and is explicitly addressing the question of the conservation and preservation of culture in the Central European and European area. As it apparently becomes more difficult, despite the digitization and the opening of borders, to preserve the right of people on culture, cultural networking and the traditionally connecting construction of a shared identity, this time also the study of music as another discipline as well as the dimension of the art of the interpretation of a piece will be included. To the existing co-operations of the working team comes a further collaboration with the Music and Arts University of the City of Vienna. We are looking forward to this!
At the conference, next to numerous talks on new topics and issues also two pieces will be presented:
on the one hand, the in the Vandenhoeck&Ruprecht publishers as well as in the Böhlau publishing house issued edited volume of the conference in November 2017 ‘Sources, neighbourhood, community. En route to a shared cultural history of Central Europe’, ed. A. Krah (Wien, Köln, Weimar 2019, 302 p.),
on the other hand, the new CD ‘postscriptum B. – Beethoven-Katzer-Kontraste’ with cello sonatas by L. v. Beethoven and G. Katzer (interpreters J.-U. Krah, B. Parz) in a concert at the MUK Vienna at the occasion of the coming Beethoven year.
All contributions of the conference will again be released in an edited form on the blog ‘En route to a shared identity’, link: https://dighist.hypotheses.org/ and published until February 2020 online. At this point, the team will lay down its collaborative work until further notice.
