Carl Justi-Association for the Promotion of Art Historical Cooperation with Spain, Portugal and Ibero-America




Dear members,

we hope that you have lived through these confusing Corona times in good health so far. Our everyday life has changed a lot. Our work, which lives through our international network, is also deeply affected by these changes. Scientific exchange is currently taking place more or less only on a digital level, with completely new challenges.
For the Carl Justi-Vereinigung e. V. this means in concrete terms that the conference
"Architecture, infrastructure, landscape. Construction and Representation of the Territory in Latin America" planned for the end of November this year, which Joaquín Medina Warmburg is organizing in Karlsruhe, will be postponed to the end of April 2021 for organizational reasons. At this point in time, it is too uncertain to guarantee that the colleagues from Latin America, who have already confirmed their participation in the meeting, will actually be able to come.
The project of a conference in Edinburgh, organised jointly with Claudia Hopkins (University of Edinburgh), is just as uncertain at the present time. This project, too, will have to be postponed for the time being. A date is not yet foreseeable. And we hope, of course, that the conference on parks and gardens on the Iberian Peninsula planned by Michael Scholz-Haensel can take place as planned in the second half of 2021.

The cancellation of this year's annual meeting is also connected with the cancellation of an analogous general meeting. We will do this in digital form. As soon as we have set a date, we will inform you.

Stay healthy!
With all good wishes and best regards
The Board of Directors
