The lecture series entitled The Cultures of Islam – Forming a Mosaic will be offered during the winter semester 2010/2011 and will consist of eight lectures by art historians from museums and universities about select masterpieces of Islamic art. The lecturers will present works of their choice – some of them were already exhibited in 1910 – from a monographic, innovative perspective and will seek to introduce the audience to the fascinating aesthetic variety that constitutes the arts of the Islamic world.
