Geometric Patterns in Islamic Art
11-15 September 2006
The aim of the workshop is to bring together scholars of different backgrounds in order to study the geometric aspects of medieval Islamic art and material culture in an interdisciplinary way and to develop modes of cooperation. We hope to open the eyes of the speakers and participants to the many different branches of Islamic art and material culture where geometric design plays a dominant role, and to gain insight into the traditions in which these patterns are created. To connect to the living tradition, artists will also be involved.
The workshop will consist of a general interdisciplinary part (September 11 - 13) and a continuation (Sept. 14-15), which emphasizes mathematical and possibly educational aspects.
