The starting point for Yto Barrada’s project is the unique and tragic figure of Thérèse Rivière. In the 1930s, the French ethnologist traveled to Algeria, to the Aurès mountains, to study the Berber Chaouis people.
Seminar cycle "Treasures on parchment"
In 13th– and 14th-century England, production of illuminated apocalypses was prolific. They are a type of codex accompanied by great series of illustrations, which assumed an undeniable qualitative leap in respect of the stylistic and iconographic possibilities of the medieval apocalyptic image. Today, these manuscripts are to be found in libraries and collections in all corners of the world. One of them is known as the Gulbenkian Apocalypse, which, as part of Calouste Sarkis Gulbenkian’s collection of western illuminated manuscripts, will be analysed in this session.
