Current project

Wallpaper as artistic medium in the 1960s (Andy Warhol, Daniel Buren)

The disintegration of the traditional artistic media in the 1960s simultaneously denotes the emergence of so-called Installation Art. Whereas commonly defined as three-dimensional objects in real architectonic space that supplant the illusionism of pictorial media, my project’s focus on Andy Warhol's and Daniel Buren's wallpaper works challenges this definition and establishes wallpaper as a two-dimensional and yet spatial form that allows for a combination of media images and “real space.” Thus, the genealogy of Installation Art can be rewritten from a new perspective taking into account the contested status of “reality” in the 1960s.
