Lecture & Science

Public evening lecture as part of the interdisciplinary symposium "Media of Romanticism - Painting, Music, Literature" by Professor Dr. Werner Busch (Berlin)

The first part of the lecture deals with Caspar David Friedrich and the mathematical foundation of his art and the way in which it was transcended. The second part on Constable and Turner emphasizes the romantic dimension of the supposed naturalist John Constable and his reaction to the results of meteorology on the one hand and, in the case of William Turner, his understanding of dynamis on the other. The concept of time is central to both.
In this way, the lecture attempts to characterize very different concepts of Romanticism in order to help resolve the blurred notions of Romanticism.


Werner Busch studied art history in Tübingen, Freiburg, Vienna and London. He completed his doctorate on William Hogarth and habilitated in Bonn with a thesis on the German 19th century. This was followed by a professorship in Bochum, then from 1988-2010 he held the Chair of Art History at the FU Berlin. Between 1983-85 he was head of the Funkkolleg Kunst and between 2003 and 2005 of the Collaborative Research Center 626 "Ästhetische Erfahrung im Zeichen der Entgrenzung der Künste". His publications include Adolph Menzel 2015; Füßlis Nachtmahr (with Petra Maisak) 2017; Goya 2018; Die Künstleranekdote 1760-1960, 2020; Caspar David Friedrich 2021; Romantisches Kalkül 2023.
