NOMIS Project(s)

Stefan Neuner is professor of art history and theory at the Berlin University of the Arts (Germany). He is co-leading the Site Complexes: Models of Responsive Practices for the 21st Century project.

Born in Austria, Neuner studied art history and musicology at the University of Vienna (Austria), where he competed his doctorate in 2006 with a thesis on Jasper Johns and Willem de Kooning. From 1999 to 2010 he was research scholar at the University of Vienna and the University of Zurich (Switzerland). He completed a postdoctoral research fellowship at the Kunsthistorisches Institut in Florence (Max-Planck-Institut) and joined the European Research Council (ERC) research program An Iconology of the Textile in Art and Architecture at the University of Zurich as an ERC assistant (2009–2010). Between 2011 and 2017 he was a postdoctoral research fellow at eikones at the University of Basel and research associate at the Centro Tedesco di Studi Veneziani in Venice. In 2021, the University of Basel awarded him the habilitation (with a thesis on Vittore Carpaccio).

Neuner’s research focuses on both Renaissance art and art since 1945, with an emphasis on the relationship of artworks to space: Both in terms of their location (architectural and urban contexts), their immanent spatial structures and their representational content. His approach is transdisciplinary and incorporates theories of space, the history of architecture and urban planning, cultural history, and the history of science and technology.
