Current project: Otto Dix: War, Art and Society 1914-1934

This book project, supported by a Royal Irish Academy Charlemont Grant, explores the role of Otto Dix’s confrontational pictures in shaping the memory of World War I in Germany during the years 1914-34, analysing how their meaning as war memory was defined by the visual culture of war that surrounded them, Dix’s artistic peers and critics. More information
