The Office in the Studio. The Administration of Modernism

Co-Organizer: Sven Spieker (with Hans-Christian von Herrmann). Two-day conference at Jena University (January 23-24, 2009). This interdisciplinary conference was devoted to the way the office and its administrative practices figure in 20th-century art. A space for the production, administration, and display of knowledge, the modern office - which may redouble as an artist's studio - is one of the crucibles of 20th-century modernism.
