Speakers will discuss: Frederick Leighton's 'Narcissus' room, Alfred Roller's set designs for the 1903 Secession exhibition, femininity in Hoffman and Klimt interiors, fin de siècle symbolist interiors in theory, paintings and on the stage, ceremony and etiquette in Weimar Germany, colonial artists' studio-apartments in pre-war Paris,
conventional life in Le Corbusier's 1930s interiors, body-geometrics in Oscar Schlemmer's ballet sets, spaces of the 'private view' in art galleries, ritual and performance in post-war church interiors in Britain, Breakfast at Tiffany's filmic interiors, the performance of lifestyle in hotel lobbies and the scenography of present day film and television.
Keynote address: Dr. Tag Gronberg, Reader in the History of Art and
Design, Birkbeck, University of London.
