Max Koss, M.A.

Doctoral Fellow, Project "CAHIM"

Max Koss, a native of Berlin, is currently a PhD candidate in Art History at the University of Chicago. He trained as an economic and social historian at the London School of Economics, from which he graduated in 2003. His interest in the history of ideas brought him to study the Romantic Love of Art at the Courtauld Institute of Art in 2005/6. His current research focuses on the emergence of modern design at the turn of the century and the ways it was mediated in journals and magazines.

Max has held fellowships from the German Schiller Association, the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), the Samuel H. Kress Foundation and others. He has participated in short programs from the Mellon Foundation, the Rare Book School, and eikones/NFS Bildkritik. He has also completed internships at the Art Institute of Chicago, the Musée d'Art moderne de la Ville de Paris and the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC.
