Any piece of art can be studied from various perspectives – starting with assessing the ways of its proper conservation and protection, proceeding with morphological analysis and study of its functional context, crafts and techniques used during its production, through the investigation of its ideological, social and political background, religious views and cultural contacts it reflects, to the search for an ideal way of exhibiting it and, finally, contemplating its aesthetic (sometimes even practical) values. It is usually at one of the above stages that one encounters art – sometimes even randomly – and often becomes absorbed in its study for a significant part of his/her life.
Four experts – four different approaches – four different experiences.
Four scholars of art history, archaeology, museology and architecture background will recall their encounter with the study of Chinese art and archaeology and the challenges it represented, and discuss how their perception, focus and approach evolved during their studies and throughout their professional career.
