Engaging in works of art and events of a wide range of time periods, the doctoral program “Interart Studies” aims at devising new methodological approaches to emerging interart phenomena and at creating new aesthetic categories that might adequately describe the tendency in the arts toward multimedialization, hybridization, and performativization. The long-term goal of this field of research is the development of new theories referring to different types of interart phenomena that cannot be grasped by a single discipline within fine arts studies alone.
