Françoise Forster-Hahn

October - January 2002

Françoise Forster-Hahn is professor of the history of art at the University of California, Riverside, and has published widely on issues of nineteenth- and twentieth-century art and popular culture and the role of institutions and exhibition displays in the construction of national and cultural identity. She is the editor of Imagining Modern German Culture, 1889-1910 (1996).  At the Clark, Forster-Hahn will revise for publication five case studies analyzing the staging and critical reception of German art at the Paris World's Fairs from 1855 to 1900, arguing that the dialectical relationship between both national self-representation and international integration affects what the Germans showed and the French perceived.
