Dan Karlholm is Professor and Head of Art History at Södertörn University in Stockholm. His work on historiography includes Handböckernas konsthistoria (1996) and Art of Illusion: The Representation of Art History in Nineteenth-Century Germany and Beyond (2004). His current research interests revolve around the theory and history of contemporary art, not least its multiple relations to non-contemporary and historical art. He is also the editor of Konsthistorisk tidskrift/Journal of Art History. At the Clark, he will work on “Art and the Passing Present: Contemporary Art in Time,” which is part of the interdisciplinary research program “Time, Memory, and Representation” (www.histcon.se).
