Religious and socio-political events were not only the background of trends in architecture and art, but often inspired them or influenced the direction in which they evolved.
Art, including architecture, understood as a means of transmitting ideas influencing the way they are understood, often inspired changes in the way they were received, becoming a mute world of all their complexity.
For a proper understanding of art, one must understand the historical context appropriate to the moment of its creation.
The uniqueness of architectural monuments consists in perpetuating in one work the ideas of people who have left their mark on them over the centuries.
The leading theme of the EuCuComm 2023 conference is “The use of churches in Europe after their desacralization”. It involves many aspects, not only of a technical nature, but also of ethical, theological or cultural nature.
Churches changing their function are usually objects that constitute a permanent cultural heritage and as such require a proper approach both in terms of their reconstruction to adapt to new functions, but perhaps primarily as a centuries-old place of worship and at the same time a testimony of past times, which should remain preserved.
The Conference EuCuComm 2023 aims to enable understanding of mutual relations between historical and social events and their reflection of art, including architecture, by presenting various points of view on the processes shaping the contemporary image of Europe’s wider cultural heritage.
