War das Engagement für periphere Kultur bzw. regionalistisch inszenierte Kunst ein Mittel zur politischen Systemstabilisierung in spätkolonialen bzw. spätimperialen Regimen? Welche Rolle spielten darin
die Disziplinen von Kunst- und Architekturgeschichte, der Ethnografie etc., aber auch die Techniken und Medien von Fotografie, Film, Buchpublikation, Museum und Ausstellung? Welche Institutionen standen dahinter, welche konkreten Akteure?
Die englische Tagung nimmt innereuropäische Randzonen (Fokus Habsburg) und außereuropäische Kolonien (Fokus Asien) zwischen 1900 und 1950 in einen transkulturellen Blick.
