Lecturer Summer Semester 2018: Dipl.-Ing. (Univ.) Anna Partenheimer

Munich’s Sgraffiti

The seminar aims at discussing the iconography and iconology of Munich’s researched Sgraffiti facades. Which social issues can be recognized in the paintings of buildings in this city? To what extend is the image in the city also an expression of its society, represented by religious, political, social, or commercial topics? The seminar will discuss the methodology of the collection as well as its various possibilities of representation of the collected information. As regards the cultural heritage of architectural qualities, the collection, evaluation and presentation of the seminar’s study usefully contributes to the coming European Cultural Heritage Year 2018.
