A panel devoted to RÊVE (Romantic Europe: the Virtual Exhibition)

Addressing both an academic and a general audience, RÊVE is an interdisciplinary online project showcasing and sharing Romantic texts, objects, and places through a panEuropean collaboration between academic researchers, museums, galleries and other cultural groupings. It aims to examine and compare the ways European Romanticisms constructed foundational ideas of cultural consumption, authorship, and medium. To do this, it explores and describes how these ideas were expressed and experienced through iconic objects (conceived in the broadest sense as comprising buildings, landscapes, and artefacts).

RÊVE is designed to organise, curate, and make publicly accessible up to 100 microbiographies of the most compelling of these objects. Taking the interim form of a monthly blog-post, RÊVE launched in 2017 with ‘exhibits’ including Teresa Guccioli’s lock of Byron’s hair, Rousseau’s trapdoor, and a previously unknown oil-painting referred to in Madame de Staël’s Corinne.
