The art and architecture of the Islamic world had a decisive influence on the development of decorative arts and western Modernism. Many leading artists, masters of decorative arts and architects took inspiration from the rich Islamic language of forms and ornamentation. The planned conference aims to cast new light on the efforts of western artists to study a foreign but inspiring culture by taking a transcultural approach. Lectures by 14 internationally renowned specialists.
