Transregional Art Histories.
Actors, Spaces, Ecologies from the 13th Century to the Present

Research Group Hannah Baader

This Max Planck research group studies art and aesthetic practices from transregional and ecological perspectives. With an interest in materiality and theories of practice, it investigates works of art in relation to place, space, and environment. Participants study art or related practices, human and non-human agencies, as well as cultural politics and temporalities, in transregional processes. Major research focuses were on the history of cultural archives, the aesthetics of environments, and artistic engagements with vegetal life. At the same time, personal research of the group leader on the Iconology of Sea in Early Modern Italy continued.

The research unit includes a graduate and postdoc fellowship program, collaborative and individual research projects, as well as scientific guests.
