A wealth of new interdisciplinary research perspectives has enriched the examination of expressionist art in recent years. However, is expressionism, beyond those discourses, still relevant for the younger generation? The workshop will explore questions such as how can art history teaching at universities and exhibitions and educational programs at museums be developed to attract students and junior scholars as well as young audiences to classical modernism, which topics and methods are suitable and what aspects have been overlooked?

JProf. Dr. Fiona McGovern  is an art historian, writer, and curator. In her research, curatorial and educational practice, she focusses on questions regarding (artistic) exhibition history and historiography, ethics of curating as well as interdisciplinary approaches within the arts. Since 2018, she holds a junior professorship for curatorial practice and art mediation at the University of Hildesheim. In 2022, she was visiting professor of curatorial studies at the HfG Karlsruhe.

Daniela Bystron has been Curator for Outreach/Programme at the Brücke-Museum Berlin since 2018. From 2006 to 2018, she headed the Art Education Department at the Hamburger Bahnhof – Museum für Gegenwart, Berlin, and at the Neue Nationalgalerie, part of the National Museums in Berlin. In her curatorial and educational practice, she is interested in questioning museum routines and canonical concepts of knowledge, exploring spatial and social settings, and employing collaborative working methods.
