Prof. Dr. Barbara Lange
Chief. Barbara Lange holds a chair of art history at Tuebingen University. Having started her academic career at Kiel University she first became professor at Leipzig University before moving to Tuebingen in 2006. For many years postwar art in Europe is one of her main interests. Her particular focus is on the role and function of art for the forming of our identities. With the research for this project she continues in the line of this focus, whereas discussions of genuine questions of aesthetics and its power add a new direction as well.
Research Student. Elisabeth Weiß is MA student of Art History in Tübingen. Within the project, she is working on the publications and designing and maintaining the project’s website. She has been studying the history of the 20th century since her early youth. Now, the analysis of the role of art, as both, reflector and actor in the reorganization in the postwar time, is connecting many of her personal interest.
Currently she's doing research on Anni Albers and her works.
