Veille – Colloque : « Fluctuating alliances: art, politics, and diplomacy in the Modern Era (XVI-XVIIIth centuries) » (Berlin, Technische Universität 21st – 22nd September 2017)

In January 1722 after a few days of heavy rain in Rome the ephemeral “macchina d’artificio” built to celebrate the wedding between the Prince of Asturias and Isabel d’Orleans was finally burnt before the palazzo di Spagna. The machine, designed by Domenico Paradisi, showcased a clear message of unity and power between the former enemies, France and Spain. At the summit, allegories of both countries shook hands before the representation of the Four Continents. This functioned as a gentle reminder to their enemies after the years of turmoil surrounding the War of Spanish Succession, which had deeply affected the balance of power in Europe.

The Ist International Symposium on Transnational Relations and The arts is devoted to Fluctuating alliances: art, politics and diplomacy in the Modern Era (s. XVI-XVIII), seeks to explore the role played by prints, drawings, and any kind of artistic production, such as music and literature, which represented the changing alliances among kings, rulers and countries in the fluctuating early modern political environment. Taking as an example the War of Spanish Succession, but not limited to it, we encourage researchers to explore the uses of art for that purpose.
