 Crossing Borders
Johan Thorn Prikker and European Modernism

One of the aims of the exhibition Johan Thorn Prikker, beyond Art Nouveau is to pay attention to the career of Thorn Prikker as a whole, by uniting his Dutch and his German works. In line with this we are organizing the twin conference "Crossing Borders. Johan Thorn Prikker and European Modernism" as a binational event on Januari 28th, 2011 in Rotterdam and on April 8th, 2011 in Düsseldorf.

This academic conference devoted to Thorn Prikker and his time aims to discuss the perception of an almost forgotten modern artist by bringing together Dutch and German researchers from different areas of expertise: museum professionals, curators and university students.The conference should be a platform to exchange observations on Thorn Prikker and research in ‘the long’ 19th century, contextualizing the results of the monographic exhibition and catalogue.

Approaches from cultural history, especially research on national identity, the avant-garde, and the canon of Modernism, including art critique and the history of collecting, will give new perspectives on Thorn Prikkers work and his position in the applied, monumental and figurative modern art.
