Sabine Kriebel


After finishing her PhD in 2003 (co-advised by Anne Wagner and TJ Clark), Sabine Kriebel worked for a year at the National Gallery in Washington DC on the groundbreaking Dada exhibition, before taking up a permanent post in Ireland. Her current book project rethinks the often maligned modernist realist phenomenon called The New Objectivity via psychoanalysis and phenomenology. Her first book Revolutionary Beauty: The Radical Photomontages of John Heartfield (University of California Press, 2014), based on her PhD dissertation, also rethought the role of holism in post WWI representation.
