AbstractLooking at Italian art of the Middle Ages, this panel brings together perspectives on the dynamics of forces in spaces, situations, and imaginaria of boundaries. Pursuing an interest in both spatial and temporal boundaries, the panel traces the forces and counter-forces that have an effect onto the 'border' as they form it in a material, spatial, or imaginative way. Discussing the forces emanating from borders in Italian art, the panel also sheds light on the semantic potential of borders to stabilize the frameworks or spaces they enclose.
