The Polish Institute of World Art Studies and the Research Centre of Buddhist Studies of the Faculty of Oriental Studies of the University of Warsaw in collaboration with the State Ethnographic Museum in Warsaw, are organising the jubilee 10th Meeting: “Buddhist Art”, as part of the series “Meetings on Oriental Art.”
The Conference will take place on 26-27 October 2023 in the State Ethnographic Museum in Warsaw. It is aimed at art historians and orientalists, museum curators and conservators of artworks, specialists in cultural studies and ethnologists.
The purpose of the 10th Meeting on Oriental Art is to present the diversity of artistic forms of Buddhist art and its protection. This conference will enable participants to deepen their knowledge of the history of Buddhist art, and to get to known museum collections of Buddhist art in Poland.
The conference will be conducted in the Polish language.
It is envisaged that there will be no registration fee for participants in the conference.
We invite applications by 30th June 2023 to the email address firstname.lastname@example.org
Applications should consist of the first name and surname, the title or scholarly designation, the institute of affiliation, and the title of the proposed contribution, together with a brief resumé (of no more than 600 keystrokes inclusive of spaces).
The anticipated duration for presentations is up to 20 minutes.
Presentations will be published in a post-conference publication.
The organising committee comprises Prof. Jerzy Malinowski, Prof. Marek Mejor, Dr hab. Katarzyna Marciniak and Maurycy Gawarski (secretary)
Buddha (Sanskrit, lit. “The Awakened”), the founder of the oldest of the three greats religious of the world, was a historical figure. He lived and was active in Northern India around the 5th century B.C.E. Buddhism has a specific significance in the history of religion and civilisation on account of its longevity, the multiplicity of its figures, the broadness of its influence, and finally the great number of its adherents. Buddhism is not just a religion and a philosophy, but also a culture which has been influential on the social and political life, the history and culture, thought and art of the peoples of Asia – in India, throughout China, from Korea to Japan, from Buryatia to Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam and the islands of Indonesia. During the first millennium of our era a great spiritual and cultural commonwealth came into being, which might be designated a “Buddhist oecumene”.
During the 2,500 years of its existence Buddhism has developed remarkably diverse and refined forms of artistic expression, inspired by religious beliefs as well as by the legend of the life and actions of the Buddha. Within this diversity there are, however, common characteristic features, to which we give the label “Buddhist Art”.
Meetings on Oriental Art bring together art historians, orientalists, ethnographers, conservators of artworks, historians, archeologists and specialists in cultural studies, particularly those associated with museums and institutions of higher education. A fundamental aspect of the Meetings is its all-Polish aspect, allowing for presentations of and studies into the collections of museums and libraries. They are the sole permanent place of contact and exchange of experience between institutions and representatives of various professional and regional milieux. Information on exhibitions, publications, conferences and didactics are likewise important. Thanks to the Meetings art historians and orientalists have the opportunity of learning about artistic techniques or conservation technologies, for instance, while conversely themselves communicating information on styles and iconography or historical events and languages. The fact that the Meetings are conducted in Polish serves to create a new Polish scientific terminology.
The jubilee 10th Meeting “Buddhist Art” continues a tradition of all-Polish “Meetings on Oriental Art” (“Meetings of Polish Art Historians and Restorers of Oriental Works of Art”), which since 2002 in Toruń have been organised by Prof. Jerzy Malinowski and the paper conservator Mirosława Wojtczak (1954-2015), founders of the Section of Oriental Art (its full title : Section of Study and Restoration of Oriental Works of the Art, 2002-2020) at the Faculty of Fine Arts of the Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń. From the 5th Meeting in 2008 the co-organiser has been the Polish Society of Oriental Art, transformed in the year 2011 into the Polish Institute of World Art Studies. Papers presented at these meetings have been published in “Toruńskie Studia o Sztuce Orientu” (“Toruń Studies on Oriental Art” (6 volumes), “Art of the Orient”, “(The) Artistic Traditions of Non-European Cultures” and “World Art Studies”, as well as in other publication series.
The 10th Meeting is co-organised by the Research Centre of Buddhist Studies, a research unit of an interdisciplinary nature, established in 2008 by Prof. Marek Mejor within the new structure of the Faculty of Oriental Studies of the University of Warsaw. The Research Centre draws on the tradition and achievements of the 'Warsaw School of Buddhology', created by Prof. Stanisław Schayer (1899-1941), founder of the Institute of Oriental Studies at the University of Warsaw (1932). The activity of the Research Centre of Buddhist Studies involves research on Buddhism within the scope of many specialisations represented at the Faculty of Oriental Studies, such as Indology, Sinology, Japanese Studies, Korean Studies, Tibetology, Mongolian Studies and others. The Centre offers lectures, seminars, courses and other academic programmes in various areas of Buddhist studies for undergraduate and graduate students. It publishes the monographic series Studia Buddhica.
