The Réseau Art Nouveau Network now Cultural Route of the Council of Europe!


The Réseau Art Nouveau Network is delighted to announce that it has been approved for certification as a Council of Europe Cultural Route by the Governing Board of the Enlarged Partial Agreement on Cultural Routes (EPA), following the final defense which took place on 11 April 2014 in Luxembourg.

Through numerous activities (travelling exhibitions, colloquiums, publications, activities for children…), the Réseau Art Nouveau Network indeed created since 1999 an active cooperation and an exchange of experiences between multiple European actors concerned by the study and the conservation of the European and International Art Nouveau heritage, as well as by its promotion and diffusion towards the public while underlining the cultural values and the European dimension of this heritage.

It answers thus to the different requested criteria for the granting of this mention (representative theme of the European values common to several countries; projects of multilateral long-term cooperation of scientific research, of heritage conservation and enhancement – especially towards the young Europeans; organisation in independent and structured network…) and has been recognized by the EPA of the Council of Europe as a “a cultural, educational heritage and tourism co-operation project aiming at the development and promotion of an itinerary or a series of itineraries based on a historic route, a cultural concept, figure or phenomenon with a transnational importance and significance for the understanding and respect of common European values.” (Annexe to Resolution CM/Res(2013)66)

It joins the 26 others Cultural Routes certified yet for a three-years collaboration especially with the European Institute of Cultural Routes (EICR), technical body set up in 1998 to ensure the continuity and development of the Cultural Routes programme in the 50 signatory countries of the European Cultural Convention.

The Cultural Routes programme was launched by the Council of Europe in 1987. Its objective was to demonstrate, by means of a journey through space and time, how the heritage of the different countries and cultures of Europe contributes to a shared cultural heritage. The Cultural Routes put into practice the fundamental principles of the Council of Europe: human rights, cultural democracy, cultural diversity and identity, dialogue, mutual exchange and enrichment across boundaries and centuries.

Call for papers II coupDefouet International Congress in Barcelona – from 25 to 28 June 2015


Breaking the Art Nouveau Glass Ceiling

The Art Nouveau European Route brings together local governments and other institutions in the common quest for the protection, promotion and diffusion of Art Nouveau heritage.

To fully explore and bring to light the value of Art Nouveau heritage, therefore, a Congress organised by the Art Nouveau European Route cannot limit its scope to the analyses and interpretation of the tangible heritage; it must go deeper into the reality of the communities that created it.

In this second edition of the coupDefouet International Congress, we propose to shed new light on an aspect that has been studied very little, if at all: the important contribution of women artists to the development of Art Nouveau. In a nutshell: women as artists, women as creators, women as promoters and protagonists of Art Nouveau. Coupled with this ambition, we also wish to revisit the widely studied and interpreted representation of the female aesthetic and ideal in Art Nouveau, with new contributions on the matter.

A further strand will focus on little-known Art Nouveau cities, in which we expect to discover creative centres of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries that have not until now been widely publicised. A similar section on research in progress to the first congress, one in which we welcome presentations from both seasoned and young researchers, will complete the thematic strands of the programme.

The final deadline for submissions is 15 October 2014

Exhibition and Website Mackintosh Architecture at The Hunterian in Glasgow – from 18 July 2014 to 4 January 2015


A fresh look at a familiar icon
Mackintosh Architecture at The Hunterian

The landmark research project into Mackintosh’s architecture, which began in 2010, has been led by the University of Glasgow’s Hunterian. It presents the first comprehensive evaluation of Mackintosh’s architectural career, available on a free access website, www.mackintosh-architecture.gla.ac.uk from 18 July. The richly illustrated site includes a catalogue of Mackintosh’s architectural projects and architectural drawings, over 3000 images, 350 biographies, timeline, interactive map, glossary and bibliography.

The site will be launched with the first major exhibition to be devoted to Mackintosh’s architectural work. Mackintosh Architecture will present over 80 architectural drawings from The Hunterian and collections across the UK, many never exhibited before, alongside specially commissioned film, models and rarely seen archival material.

Based on the work of the research project, the exhibition challenges the familiar view of Mackintosh as the isolated genius by presenting the wider context of his architectural practice, introducing the contractors, suppliers and clients who supported the delivery of the buildings, and outlining the building process, from initial planning permission to final inspection.

The exhibition is supported by three special displays which showcase Mackintosh’s skills as a draughtsman and designer, largely drawn from The Hunterian’s unrivalled Mackintosh Collection: Mackintosh Travel Sketches; William Davidson: Art Collector; and C.R. Mackintosh: ‘Begonias’

Exhibition Glasgow Style: Arts & Crafts from 1890-1930 at Blackwell in Cumbria – until 31 December 2014


The end of the nineteenth century saw Glasgow’s artists emerge as accomplished and talented crafts people. Born at the highly influential Glasgow School of Art and blending together the imagery of the Celtic Revival with influences from Art Nouveau and the Arts and Crafts Movement, the term ‘the Glasgow Style’ was coined and came to represent this distinctive style developed in the west of Scotland.

This exhibition explores the unique skills of some of the leading makers associated with this period including Charles Rennie Mackintosh, Talwin Morris, Jessie Marion King, Ernest Archibald Taylor and Margaret and Frances Macdonald, showing the strength and prominence of Glaswegian Arts and Crafts.

International Conference Lechner at the Museum of Applied Arts in Budapest – from 19 to 21 November 2014


Conference dedicated to Ödön Lechner on the Occasion of the 100th Anniversary of his Death

In 2014 we commemorate the 100th anniversary of the death of Ödön Lechner (1845–1914), one of the greatest Hungarian architects and one of the most original geniuses of the European architectural scene at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries. We wish to mark this special occasion with a three-day-long international conference (September 19-21), followed by an optional trip to some of his major works in the country (September 21).

The aim and the role of the conference is to place Lechner’s architectural principles and designing activity on the contemporary European scale, with the opportunity for comparisons on a wide horizon, while also giving an opportunity for presenting the results of most recent research.

Exhibition Art Nouveau - European Architecture in Georgia at the Art Nouveau Museum in Riga – from 13 September to 30 November 2014


Information about Art Nouveau arrived in Georgia from Russia and Europe via the shortest route - the Black Sea. Art Nouveau expanded rapidly through different kinds of publications: professional, popular and fashion magazines, and photos and people who came to work or study in the country. Compared to Europe Georgia was rather backward in development but this fact didn't stop the style being popular amongst customers and builders. With surprising unanimity people from different social groups had Art Nouveau style apartment houses built. The popularity of Art Nouveau was stirred by local professionals and craftsmen as well as by the great interest and disposition of the population towards the style. These factors together led to the building of numerous multifunctional, rather complicated examples of the style.
