Description

With support from the OSU History of Art Department, PhD student Cole J. Graham spent a week in Austria this July exploring the Egon Schiele Documentation Center at the Leopold Museum and Oskar Kokoschka Zentrum Kunstsammlung und Archiv at the Universität für angewandte Kunst Wien. Cole is deeply grateful to the university for the opportunity to interact with and examine original drawings, photographs, and letters from the lives of these important expressionist artists, who will feature in his future dissertation exploring the contours of gender via queer/trans theory in German and Viennese figurative painting of the early 20th Century. Visiting Schiele's birthplace in Tulln and walking the Egon Schiele Weg was especially meaningful.

Cole also extends his special thanks to Dr. Verena Gamper at the Leopold, and Dr. Bernadette Reinhold (as well as her assistant, Bettina Buchendorfer) at the Kokoschka Zentrum, for sharing their engaging ideas, thoughtful direction, and warm hospitality.
