Art History as Knowledge and Academic Discipline

A history of the knowledge of art and art history (not only a history of the discipline) is of central significance for the ZI. It comprises various disciplinary and interest groups that deal with art (museums, historic preservation, art dealers, collectors, art critics, etc.). This history of knowledge also examines the socio-political dimension of art, the discourse on art and art history, and offers multifaceted connections and interfaces, including local networking.
