Executive Committee


Prof. Dr. Iris Wenderholm (Chair)

Iris Wenderholm is professor of European Art History of the Early Modern Period at Universität Hamburg’s Department of Art History.

As a result of stations at the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin, a research stay at the Kunsthistorisches Institut in Florence, and scientific collaborations in Frankfurt and Berlin, as well as the management of the DFG project natura – materia – artificio from 2013 to 2017, Iris Wenderholm developed a special focus that spans the field of early modern visual art, art theory, and nature. In addition to her involvement in teaching and research formats with international partners (Paris, École Pratique des Hautes Études – Sorbonne, Shanghai, Tongji University, Bloomington, Indiana University), Iris Wenderholm took on chairmanships and memberships ranging from the scientific advisory board of the Aby Warburg Foundation and the jury of the ARTEFACTA Festival Düsseldorf for “Digital Media” to the Association of German Art Historians.

A particular interest in cooperations with cultural institutions in the Hamburg metropolitan region resulted in numerous exhibitions that were co-curated by Iris Wenderholm.
