Hanna Hölling works on the intersections of conservation, art history and theory, and material culture studies. In 2013-2015, as Andrew W. Mellon Visiting Professor in the curricular initiative Cultures of Conservation at the Bard Graduate Center in New York, she taught graduate seminars on conservation, art history and museology. Hölling was head of conservation at the ZKM Center for Art and Media in Karlsruhe, and obtained her Ph.D from the University of Amsterdam in 2013 with a thesis concerning media art by Nam June Paik (in its revised form, it is in preparation for publication at the University of California Press). Her recent book Revisions-Zen for Film (Bard Graduate Center New York/The University of Chicago Press, 2015) accompanies an eponymous exhibition at the Bard Graduate Center Focus Gallery in New York (09/17/2015-01/10/2016).
