תחומי מחקר

I am an art historian from Tel Aviv University, whose research focuses on late medeival German Gothic Sculpture and trecento painting. My monograph on the sculptural programs of the collegiate church St. Theobald in Thann inquired into problems of artistic production, workshop routine, and medieval mass-sculpture, exploring the political agenda of the ecclesiastic and lay art commissioners animated in the imagery. Following this work, I embarked on a broader project dedicated to the ensemble of the Parler tympana at Augsburg, Freiburg, Schwaebisch Gmuend, Thann and Ulm, concentrating on the aspects of narrativity, visuality, and spectatorship. My recent project on the medieval notion of symulachra engages with issues of imaginative and somatic responses to medieval imagery, especially to human effigies and voyeuristic and violence imagery, arguing for a non-religious understanding of medieval art.
