Safe Areas in Civil Wars

Official Fellow Dr Stefano Recchia has recently edited a special issue of the journal Global Responsibility to Protect, dedicated to ‘safe areas’ for civilian protection during violent conflict. Soon after the end of the Cold War, internationally protected safe areas were established, most prominently in northern Iraq (1991), Bosnia-Herzegovina (1993), and Rwanda (1994). More recently, the idea has experienced a revival, in the face of protracted, man-made humanitarian crises in Libya, Syria... Read more

The Life of a Sculptor

Talk and Art Viewing

Please join us in the Richard Eden Suite (West Court, Clare Hall) on the 17 October at 5.30 pm for a drinks reception.  The talk will start at 6.00 pm followed by a hot buffet reception served in the Richard Eden Suite at 7.30 pm.

Johannes von Stumm is an internationally established sculptor living and working in Oxfordshire, United Kingdom. His unique combination of three different materials has attracted public and critical acclaim. His startlingly original sculptures, which engage continually with risk and a defiance of accepted laws, combine metal, stone and glass to create abstract or reduced figurative works in which apparently conflicting materials exist in complex harmony. Von Stumm's choice of media and instinct for experimentation is rooted in his background, in a childhood spent at the foot of the Alps with long winters, ice and rocks. His love of steel and glass is intertwined with his family history: ancestors on his father’s side were blacksmiths and steel factory owners for 250 years, while his mother’s ancestors owned a glass factory in Bohemia. In his ‘Immaterial Figures', Johannes von Stumm has eliminated the shadows to create figures of light and ultimate transparency, powerful figures which use the negative space to let light into increasingly complex and exciting forms. These works are a logical progression in his continual wish to translate and transform into solid sculpture the transitory effects of light, to de-materialise the image in space.  Johannes studied sculpture at the Akademie der Bildenden Künste, München, Germany. He moved to Britain in 1995, and two years later, in 1997, became a Member of the Royal Society of Sculptors. He also served as the President of the Royal Society of Sculptors between 2009 and 2012. He is a Founding member of Sculpture Network (Europe) and President of the Oxford Art Society. He serves as President of the Oxford Art Society and the Open Studios West Berkshire and North Hampshire.

Entrance fee - £10 (payable at the door). Attendance is free for members of the College and of the FCHAS. Please RSVP to artsociety@clarehall.cam.ac.uk

Convenors:

  • Helaine Blumenfeld OBE, Patron FCHAS
  • Dr Annamaria Motrescu-Mayes, Hon. Secretary FCHAS
