I attend to the relationship between ars (craft) and scientia (knowledge), the
invention of new images and new modes of representation is key for the
mediation of new knowledge generated by the “scientific revolution” which
occurred entour the reception and integration of Aristotelian ideas and Arabic
knowledge by Christian natural philosophers in the late medieval period
Beate Fricke’s research focuses on the history of images, objects and places, using perspectives from philosophy, cultural anthropology, history of the sciences, economy and theology. She received her PhD in History of Art from the University of Trier (2005). Before joining the University of Bern (Switzerland) in 2017, she was Professor for Medieval Art and Architecture at the University of California, Berkeley. For her project Global Horizons in Pre-Modern Art she was awarded an ERC consolidator grant (2018-23, www.global-horizons.ch ). She is co-founder and editor of 21-inquiries.eu/en.
