"European Network for Baroque Cultural Heritage" (ENBaCH)
The project concerns and involves a network of eight Universities located in 6 different European countries: Universitat de Barcelona, Technische Universität Dresden, Ernst-Moritz-Arndt-Universität Greifswald, Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales - Paris, La Sapienza Università di Roma, Università di Teramo, Uniwersytet Warszawski, Medizinische Universität Wien. After the 5 year period of support provided by the Culture program, ENBaCH aims at achieving permanent status and financial independence.
ENBaCH Subproject Greifswald/Kiel
The Ernst-Moritz-Arndt-University of Greifswald and its associated partner, the Christian-Albrechts-University of Kiel, are concerned with the documentation and socio-historical interpretation of the baroque cultural heritage in the Southern Baltic Sea region and the dissemination of the results to a broad audience. Since the start of the project, the major focus lay on the cataloguing of baroque sacral and secular architecture in contemporary Southern Denmark, Northern Germany, Northern Poland, Kaliningrad and the Baltic states via extensive archive and literature research as well as field studies. So far, tourist circuits for selected cities and areas in Northern Germany have been designed. Also, a database that systematically brings together the collected information has been compiled. This database forms the basis for the development of an "Atlas of the Baroque Cultural Heritage" which will combine innovative ways of mapping baroque architecture with in-depth historical analysis of cultural and artistic exchange processes.
A Historical Atlas of 17th century sites will show the spreading of social phenomena through a sequence of historical maps. The Atlas will especially focus on the diffusion of Baroque culture (architecture, libraries, art, literature) across the Baltic Sea, considered as an outstanding example for the spreading of Baroque culture from the South and Southwest to the North of Europe.
