Professor of Art History & Material Culture
prof. dr. A.S. (Ann-Sophie) Lehmann


My research develops a process-based approach to art and visual material culture. In particular, I study how materials, tools, and practices partake in the meaning making of art; how images and texts represent and reflect creative practices; and how knowledge about making engenders material literacy. My approach is transhistorical and includes old and new media, ranging from oil paint and clay to aniline dyes and software. For an overview of academic activities and published work, see also:
