Eduardo Chillida. Frankfurt Goethe Universität
The chairs are aimed at fomenting and promoting knowledge and research into specific topics on the Basque language and culture through specialist professors and artists themselves. The Etxepare Basque Institute has to date created three international chairs, all of which undertake annual academic programmes on Basque Studies.
Eduardo Chillida Chair at the Johann Wolfgang Goethe University in Frankfurt
It was established in 2013 and its goal is to promote specialised study and research. It began with classes on the great Basque artist Eduardo Chillida and during the academic year 2014-2015 it plans to organise an international conference on the artist.
The chair is located in the History of Art Institute at the Johann Wolfgang Goethe University in Frankfurt and classes form part of Curatorial Studies, administered by the same Institute; furthermore, the Frankfurt Library of Art houses the entire bibliography on the artist in his own section, thereby becoming a point of reference for scholars of his work.
It annually invites a prestigious scholar to offer a seminar or a series of talks. Moreover, the faculty will hold a top-level biannual international symposium on Eduardo Chillida’s work.
