How can we reconcile and link powerful digital platforms so that art market and cultural heritage researchers can move beyond the case study approach to discover and analyse patterns that help us to understand the worldwide circulation of both European and non-European art throughout th eages?

How can we transform new scholarly insights into widely accessible narratives and (virtual) exhibitions targeted at a wide raudience? 

The public event will address these questions on completion of a two-day workshop at KU Leuven on 11-12 March 2020, which will bring together experts in Art History, Digital Art History, Digital Cultural Heritage, Cultural Studies, Cultural Economics, Computer Science, and Finance. The workshop and the public event have been co-organised by KU Leuven and the Europeana Foundation within the Europeana Research Grants Programme.
