The three papers in this session are in the same time frame, i.e. the pre-modern period, but they focus on different kinds of art, stretching from images in different media to bronzeware and ceramics. The first two papers concern themselves with the travelling of pictorial and aesthetic concepts in East Asia, investigating transcultural shifts in iconography, function and form with regards to influences as well as negotiations. The first and third paper have a similar approach in that they aspire to give an art-historical overview, but while the first paper seems to be more interested in forms and styles, the third one evinces also an interest in non-iconographic aspects, especially the body and the senses.
