Our perception is constantly changing. While 19th century Art History still placed the main emphasis on isolated objects and on the artist as a heroic figure, nowadays, at the latest after the recent spatial turn, the integration of artworks into a larger spatial context has since become the subject of current scientific interest. Space, however, is difficult to teach in the classroom, but must be experienced to be analyzed. This course, however, does not aim at dealing only with geographic and urbanistic issues, but rather intends to question of how foreign and local identity manifest themselves within the urban and social space. This implies not only foreigners as patrons but also the use of foreign artists - often proudly claiming their origin in their signatures - within a defined local context. With their largely preserved urbanistic and artistic heritage, Venice and Padua offer an extraordinary ground for exploring various possibilities for analysis.
