For more than three decades, Art History and Science Studies have increasingly engaged in researching exhibitions as the sites and the media of production, presentation, and negotiation. This workshop discusses the methods of the comparative study and description of exhibition histories with regard to the examples of Les Immatériaux and Iconoclash. It evaluates aesthetic, epistemological and political aspects and the meanings generated by the ensembles of curators, networks and exhibits that constitute such exhibition projects. Another focus is placed on the investigation of the medial conditions of historical exhibitions, and on the relationship between medial and methodological innovations.
