Event description

Description

Limited places: only 10 places available

Our series of ‘Books in Focus’ sessions focuses on artists’ books and archive material held in the special collections of the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art. This session will examine works on paper and archival material with occult themes, as well as rare books on witchcraft from the Keiller and Penrose libraries. From Albrecht Dürer’s Four Witches and the infamous text Malleus Maleficarum, to art of the last century, we will be discussing the links between the rising interest in witchcraft and the occult after WWI, and the subsequent effect this had on the surrealist movement.

This event will take place in the Reading Room at Modern Two

If you reserve a space but find you can no longer attend, please let us know by either sending an email to gmaarchives@nationalgalleries.org or phone 0131 624 6210 so we can offer your space to someone on the waiting list.
