Special Guest Lecture with Dr. Jörg Trempler, University of Passau
In the Fog: The Invention of the Atmospheric in the Image
with Dr. Jörg Trempler, Professor of Art History and Visual Culture -- University of Passau, Germany
Fog has always been known primarily as a weather phenomenon. Surprisingly, however, it has only been depicted in western art and pictorial history since the late 18th century and is not a conventional pictorial motif such as the depiction of ruins. In this presentation, Dr. Trempler will show how fog is employed as a staging strategy to create mood and atmosphere.
Free and open to campus community.
