Effects and side effects of European Union assistance on the former Soviet republics
Burcu Dogramaci, Professor of Art History at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München and Principal Investigator of the Graduate School for East and Southeast European Studies, has been successful in her application for a Consolidator Grant from the European Research Council (ERC). The award is endowed with up to two million euros for five years.
Burcu Dogramaci is particularly interested in the relationship between migration and art and the importance of artistic perspective for the social perception of refugee movements. In her ERC project "Metromod", she examines art history from a new perspective, namely as a global entangled history, strongly influenced by artistic migration and global political crises. The project concentrates on the first half of the 20th century and plans to put in perspective six metropolises, including Istanbul, Mumbai and Shanghai as arrival and production locations for European artists.
The art historian is a principal investigator of the Graduate School for East and Southeast European Studies. Together with Christopher Balme she leads the study group "Performativity".
