Personal profile

Research areas

I am a curator at Ribe Art Museum but currently on leave, as I am working on ph.d. affiliated with Aarhus University. The ph.d. project aims to establish a new framework for understanding art works that employ medieval aesthetics, and focuses on works from the period 1880-1935 by artists such as Agnes Slott-Møller, Harald Slott-Møller, Joakim Skovgaard, and Anne Marie Carl-Nielsen. Several of these artists had prominent voices in their own time and took part in the establishment of the Danish artists association, Den Frie, but have since been declared outsiders in Danish art history. The project challenges the gendered criteria that 20th century art historians used to exclude them from the art historical canon, and examines how these artists cultivated ideals of beauty and depicted emotions in their works. The project hereby renegotiates the role of a group of artists whose works didn’t correspond to the aesthetic ideals of modernism.

The ph.d.-project is funded by the Novo Nordisk Foundation.
