33rd Congress of the International Committee of the History of Art
July 15th-20th 2012
The Germanisches Nationalmuseum is hosting the 33rd Congress of the International Committee of the History of Art CIHA 2012, from the 15th to the 20th July, 2012, here in Nuremberg. For the first time in the 140 year history of the World Congress for Art History it is being staged by a museum. The central theme of the Congress is thus the title: “The Challenge of the Object”.
We are delighted that the Federal President of the Federal Republicof Germany, Joachim Gauck, has agreed to be patron to the Congress. The Congress has been largely financed by the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media as well as the Bavarian State Ministry for Science, Research and the Arts, the Federal Ministry for Education and Research, the Getty Foundation and the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) as well as by the patrons of the Fördererkreis of the Germanisches Nationalmuseum.
This explains why the participation fee of 260 € is very low compared to previous world congresses in Montreal (2004) und Sydney (2008). Alongside the program of lectures, this fee also covers the Wednesday excursions, all evening events as well as a ticket for the use of local public transport during the period of the Congress and the program publication itself.
Should you only want to attend the Congress only on two days (16th/17th, July or 19th/20th, July), please contact the Congress Bureau under firstname.lastname@example.org directly. Our office team will then send you a two-day ticket costing 120 € (reduction 50 €).
Tickets for the Congress can be booked until the 15th June 2012 under www.ciha2012.de. The website will also give you all necessary information relevant to the program, accommodation and travel as well as to the accompanying book fair.
