In this talk, Prof. Charlotte Klonk will consider German visual history and theory and ask if the debate provides a distinct set of questions that distinguishes it from other methods in art history. Using the reception of J.M.W. Turner’s work in the 1970's as a foil, she will ponder the possibility of a new approach that departs from dominant interpretations of the second half of the twentieth century, such as iconology and social art history.
