Vortrag von Robyn Dora Radway (Budapest)
During a period of relative peace between two imperial rivals in the late sixteenth century, hundreds of travelers from across the Holy Roman Empire and Habsburg ruled territories made their way to Constantinople. This multi-lingual and religiously diverse group of noblemen, humanists, artists, servants, cooks, and messengers left behind traces of a vibrant social and material culture that crossed imperial boundaries. They collected, commissioned, and produced a series of over forty albums of decorative papers, signatures, costume images, genre scenes, and city views. This talk introduces these objects, the people involved in their creation, and the house at the center of these activities. It addresses the individualized curation of social networks and visual collections based on an owner's status and the transcultural exchanges that led to the creation of these manuscripts.
