Style workshop by art historian Júlia Katona

Art Nouveau hits us all close to home, it is love at first sight. Art Nouveau is soft, dynamic, graceful, capricious, light, airy, playful and perhaps even feminine. At first glance, Art Nouveau seems to be against the concepts of design, predictability, the past, historical styles, strict symmetry and masculine rationality; in short, against everything that historicizing styles represented in European art in the second half of the 19th century. The question arises: can an art style be “feminine”? If yes, what makes it so? And finally, is Art Nouveau a “feminine” style? In the workshop, we will explore these questions in groups through interactive games.
