Reflections on Mirrors in the Arts

Symposium of the Munich Doctoral Program for Literature and the Arts MIMESIS
14-15 July 2014
Kloster Ettal

In addition to its cultural and technological development, it lends itself to a variety of uses in artistic and aesthetic contexts. The aim of the first IDP Symposium was to investigate different facets of the mirror as an object, as a trope and as a structural principle from an interdisciplinary and cross-cultural perspective.
