The section Transcultural Perspectives provides a forum for transcultural research with an emphasis on “non-Western art and material culture”. It aims at revising the Euro-American canon of art history by local art histories and non-Western perspectives.
Transcultural Perspectives is open to all regions and periods including the present and pursues a broad art-historical approach. This encompasses not only “High Art”, but material culture as well as case studies from the field of Museum Studies. We welcome theoretical contributions from Global Art Studies, too.
The section provides an opportunity for publications in German and English. Authors interested in publishing are invited to suggest articles, conference or exhibition reviews or propose thematic issues as guest editors at any time.
