International Colloquium: Materiality as Decor - Klassische Archäologie/ CAU Kiel - Kiel

Material is the substance of the world of things. In the case of man-made objects and architecture, materiality is an inherent aspect of their function, aesthetics, and semantics. Consequently, the choice of specific materials can be considered an important feature of design. From an ancient perspective, the choice of appropriate materials was of primary importance. Ancient sources reflect a general recognition of materiality as an aesthetically perceived, semantically loaded and functionally bonded category. To date, this complex comprehension of the material world has not been adequately represented in archaeological research. The ambition of the colloquium Materiality as Decor is to focus on the decorative use of material in relation to the qualities of aesthetics, semantics and function.The colloquium will be held online via ZOOM.
