Annual Teetzel Lecture by Barry Bergdoll, Architecture & Design, MOMA and Art History & Archaeology, Columbia

University College is pleased to present the Annual Teetzel Lecture:

Barry Bergdoll, Museum of Modern Art and Columbia University

Out of Site / In Plain View: On the Origins and Modernity of the Architecture Exhibition

Barry Bergdoll is Philip Johnson Chief Curator of Architecture and Design at the Museum of Modern Art and Professor of Art History and Archaeology, Columbia University.  Professor Bergdoll's broad interests center on modern architectural history, with a particular emphasis on France and Germany between 1750 and 1900. Trained in art history rather than architecture, he has an approach most closely allied with cultural history and the history and sociology of professions. He has studied questions of the politics of cultural representation in architecture, the larger ideological content of nineteenth-century architectural theory, and the changing role of both architecture as a profession and architecture as a cultural product in nineteenth-century European society.

Bergdoll's interests also include the intersections of architecture and new technologies—and eventually cultures—of representations in the modern period, especially photography and film. He has worked on several film productions about architecture, in addition to curating a number of architectural exhibitions concerned with the history and problematics of exhibiting architecture, and the history of museological practices in relationship to architecture.



Professor Bergdoll will present a masterclass for a limited group of graduate students and faculty members on 5 February from 9:30 to 12:00 in JHB1040 (170 St. George Street).  Registration is required for participation in this class.  Please click HERE to register.
