It is well known, that by entering into a collection objects and works of art are ascribed to a new meaning. This transformation in categorisation and significance doesn´t just happen by changing the spatial parameters of the object, but none the less by the new display, which puts the works in new vicinities with other objects. The upcoming PhD-Workshop aims to challenge these object-vicinities in early modern collections. We will particularly focussing on the dialogue between objects of different spatial and chronological origin, that in a way bears comparison with a “crossing of borders”.
