Antwerp as a European Print Factory
Annual Conference 2019 of Forum BildDruckPapier
Antwerp, 2 -4 June 2019
Since the Middle Ages Antwerp developed into a flourishing metro – polis and became an important center for economy, trade, culture and art. The multitude of printers and publishers, and the numerous artists contributed significantly to the importance of this Belgian port on the river Scheldt, both nationally and internationally. What traces have they left in Antwerp? And how did Antwerp ‘s influence affect the world of images in Europe? These questions will be explored during this year ‘s conference of the Forum BildDruckPapier, and participants will be challenged to discuss these topics and exchange their ideas in Antwerp, the “European print factory.”
The conference is organized by the Forum BildDruckPapier in cooperation with the Antwerp research institutes Rubenianum and Ruusbroecgenootschap (University of Antwerp).
