The Interior:
Art, Space, and Performance
(Early Modern to Postmodern)

Under the leadership of the Bern Institute of Art History, the Sinergia project “The Interior: Art, Space, and Performance (Early Modern to Postmodern)”, funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) over the period from March 2012 to February 2015, is conducted in collaboration with the Institute of Media Culture and Theatre, University of Cologne. Directed by five art historians and one theatre historian, the six subprojects investigate diverse models, concepts, and interpretations of interiors in art, architecture, theatre and visual culture from the Early Modern to the Contemporary eras. Proceeding from a heterogeneous and dynamic concept of the interior drawn from various media, styles, and contexts, new questions will emerge simultaneously engaging various disciplines.
