New perspectives on modernism in art and culture and the heritage of the 20th century form the core of my research.
My Ph.D. researched retro as a central phenomenon in contemporary culture based on cultural memory and material culture.
In the postdoc projects Multiple Modernities: World Images and Dreamworlds in arts and culture, 1946-1972 (in collaboration with Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Humlebæk) and Curating the Contemporary (with SMK - National Gallery of Denmark) I have researched the exhibition histories of the postwar era and the role of Danish institutions.
My new research project “Exhibiting Across the Iron Curtain: The forgotten trail of Danish artists exhibiting in the context of state socialism, 1955-1985” (Novo Nordisk Fonden Investigator Grant in Art History, in collaboration with Yulia Karpova) will investigate exhibitions during the Cold War through the participation of Danish artists.
