13. German Talk – Follow-up

Hello,

it was lovely seeing you all yesterday, and I hope you enjoyed the talk and the exhibtions. For those who couldn’t make it, they are still open until the 1st May 2020, Monday – Friday, 10am – 5pm (closed Easter 10th – 17th April).

As usual, you can download and print a copy of the talk for personal use. All content and images are subject to copyright:

13. German Talk – A Radical Tradition Text – 4 March 2020

The next German Talk will be advertised here and in the other usual places, such as the EGO magazine, as soon as possible. However, I am actually in the process of planning and curating an exhibition for the summer (my very first!), so I probably won’t have the time to organise another German Talk before the middle or end of June.

All the very best und bis bald,

Karen

10. German Talk – Follow Up

Hello everybody,

I hope you enjoyed yesterday’s talk and walk around our lovely Edward Davies building, aka the School of Art.

As usual, you can download and print a copy of the talk here. 

For those who got curious and would like to read up on Freemasons’ art and architecture, these are the books which I used in my research. There are also of course many sources online:

Handbook of Freemasonry, edited by Henrik Bogdan and Joannes Augustinus Maria Snoek, published by Brill, 2014

The art & architecture of Freemasonry: an introductory study, by James Stevens Curl, published by Batsford, 2002

As I mentioned during the talk, I’m certainly no expert on Freemasonry, so I interpreted and translated the information I gathered to the best of my understanding.

For those who would like to find out more about the history of the university, this is quite and extensive source:

The University College of Wales, Aberystwyth, 1872-1972, by E. L. Ellis, published by University of Wales Press, 1972

I will announce the date for the next ‘German Talk’ as soon as possible on this blog, the EGO magazine and via email for those who have signed-up. If you would like to be included in the email list about the French and German Talks, please contact me on kaw25@aber.ac.uk.

All the best wishes,

Karen
