The Research Institute for History and Art History (OGK) performs and stimulates original research that offers added value to the academic world as well as to the world at large. The research covers the period from classical antiquity to the present day. The priority in Art History lies with the visual arts and architecture from the late Middle Ages to the present day. While the focus in History lies with Europe, attention is also being paid to the United States, the Near and Far East, and Africa.
