Café des Arts: Art At The time of the Plague
Join us for a conference with Frédéric Pichon, on January 21 at 6 pm.
The Middle-Ages were hit by a series of universal plagues that deeply disrupted society and affected people’s lives on a scale hard to imagine. While the Black Death was killing maybe a half of the population, Europeans never stopped to create, a strong testimony to the human spirit of resilience. Let's take a look at what happened, and how the permanence of Death changed in the way we humans saw the world through our creations.
This is an online event. Participants will receive the link for the conference by email on January 21 at 12:00 pm. This
event will be presented in English.
