Lynette Roth oversees the Division of Modern and Contemporary Art at the Harvard Art Museums generally, as well as the Busch-Reisinger Museum and its collection specifically. Her research focuses on art from German-speaking countries, with publications and/or exhibitions on the Weimar period (Cologne Progressives, Max Beckmann, August Sander), the immediate postwar period (Inventur–Art in Germany, 1943–55), and contemporary art (Rebecca Horn, Wolfgang Tillmans). Current projects include exhibitions on the photogram and issues of German art and identity after 1980.
