Anja Pawel

Interdisciplinary Laboratory

Anja Pawel studied Art History and Philosophy in Braunschweig and Berlin. She was awarded a stipend by the Cluster of Excellence »Image Knowledge Gestaltung« and is currently a PhD candidate working on the topic »Wechselbeziehung von Bild und Tanz im frühen 20. Jahrhundert« (The interrelation between picture and dance in the early 20th century). Her thesis is that visual forms influence dance movements and dancers’ choreography and that, conversely, the fundamental physicality of dance influences artists’ work, in the form of a new or altered understanding of the body or form.
