"In May 2010 the Department of Egyptian Antiquities of the Museum of Fine Arts, Budapest organised an international conference under the title Art and Society: Ancient and Modern Contexts of Egyptian Art. Understanding art as well as its contemporary and later interpretations as social products, our aim was to bring together researchers engaged in the study of Egyptian art history and social history in order to facilitate a discussion on ancient Egyptian art focusing on its roles in and implications for ancient and modern/current societies. It was also hoped that the conference would provide a forum at which the findings of recent interdisciplinary research work could be presented, and that such forum would serve to encourage further studies in that direction."

In the invitation a wide range of subjects were proposed to discuss, including both theoretical and practical approaches:
• The study of ancient Egyptian art: historiography, methods, theoretical approaches
• Definitions, terminologies and classifications (ancient and modern/current): definitions of terms referring to the notions ‘art’ and ‘artist’, classifications and hierarchies of forms of art, genres and boundaries between genres, the validity of both Egyptian and modern/current terminologies and categories
• Art and power: control of art, restrictions to access to art, the impact of changes in power relations and structures on artistic representation and production 
• Themes of art; what is displayed and what is not; the role of art in shaping and representing social identities, ideologies and beliefs 
• Artistic expression: contexts of making and modifying rules; traditions and changes in form and content; the (changing) interplay of visual, spatial, and textual arts
• Art and social realities: diff erent socio-cultural contexts and traditions of art, art and economy, centre and periphery, networks of connection
• Participation in art: patronage; commissioning; customers; training, knowledge, and social status of producers of works of art; social behaviour of participants
• Artistic production: institutions, corporations of producers of works of art, artistic media, quantity and quality of works of art, elite and ‘mass’ production, workshops and styles, technologies
• Egyptian art in later societies (ancient and modern/contemporary): Egyptian art as a resource for later artistic expression, ideologies, and construing identities; socio-cultural backgrounds for collecting and displaying Egyptian antiquities
