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.

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’
