Art and Politics, Aby Warburg, history of art and mass images, Walter Benjamin, 19th-20th Century and contemporary art.
The book "Work on the War. Journal of an Image Historian. Aby Warburg 1914-18" is based on a transcription of his journal 1914-18. This allows to trace his reaction to the events, from the focus on the newspapers 1914/5, via the initial return to historic research to the Reformation study 1917/18 in which he interpreted early printed pamphlets as forerunners of the actual newspapers. - This now leads to a new project on art history and propaganda, developed in cooperation with the Warburg Institute.
