The 35th Congress of German Art Historians in Göttingen was an extraordinary success!
Around 1,000 participants attended the congress over a total of six days. The #arthistocamp made the prelude on Tuesday with extremely positive resonance. All sections and forums, the on-site visits and excursions as well as the rich evening programme offered many opportunities for professional exchange, lively discussions and new encounters.
Many thanks to all participants, especially to the hosts in Göttingen and the many student helpers!
