Our Opening Conference, October 7–11, 2016 Reviving Visions: Artists and Scholars that connected East and West

In October 2016, students and teachers of our faculties have met for a double conference “Reviving Visions: Artists and Scholars that connected East and West” in Cologne. Our students met October 7 and presented their discoveries—places, ideas, personalities, traditions and visions—that helped us to create a space of learning and scholarship that connects Eastern and Western traditions. They presented their findings and ideas to senior scholars of all three universities at Schloss Wahn on October 10 and 11. 

We have documented our Impressions—videos and photos—on our facebook-page.
