Registration to attend the IV coupDefouet International Congress


The Art Nouveau European Route launches the 4th coupDefouet Congress on Art Nouveau. Organised jointly by the Barcelona City Council and the University of Barcelona, will take place in Barcelona, from 29 June to 2 July 2023.

In this fourth edition of the coupDefouet Congress, the main thematic strand proposes to look into new perspectives on the Art Nouveau movement in relation to national identities (art, society and thought). The coincidence in time of the construction of national identities becomes a motif for analysis and reflection from different points of view.

The second thematic strand focuses on the decorative programmes of the buildings, also relating them to the restoration initiatives that have made it necessary to recover 19th century techniques and trades. The third strand is dedicated, on the centenary of his death, to Lluís Domènech i Montaner and Art Nouveau in the world, with a study of the influences received and the mastery exercised by the architect. Finally, the section on researchers and doctoral theses in progress, which encourages doctoral students and veteran researchers to share analyses and opinions, completes the four thematic strands of the programme.

The Congress sessions will begin on 29 June and will run until Saturday 2 July. However, as is traditional for a coupDefouet Congress, a wide range of cultural and Art Nouveau-related activities will take place between 25 June and 9 July, all of them will be free for registered attendees to the Congress. We recommend that you take this into account when planning your participation!

Notice: All the sessions of the Congress will be recorded and made available to the general public on the Internet. Registration for the Congress implies your explicit agreement to such recording and its subsequent use.

The registration fee includes attendance at the Congress sessions and refreshments during the breaks, as well as official meals and the activities organised and programmed around the Congress. It also gives access to the written versions of the papers and communications, some of which will be available before the Congress and some of which will be available afterwards.

The special price of 150€ for early bird registrations will be valid only until 15 November 2022, after which it will be increased to 200€. But Art Nouveau Club members can enjoy an even lower price: log in to your private area of the Club on the website to gain access.
