Dr Andrea Kollnitz is Associate Professor in Art History and Senior Lecturer in Fashion Studies at Stockholm University. Since her PhD dissertation ‘The National Identity of Art On German and Austrian Modernism in Swedish Art Criticism 1908–1934’ (2008), her research has combined areas of fashion studies and art history/visual culture and is now focused on the self-fashioning of avant-garde artists, especially Leonor Fini, nationalist fashion and art discourses, fashion images and caricature, and Scandinavian fashion photography. She is co-editor of a recently published anthology on fashion and modernism, Modernism och mode, soon to be published in English, as well as of a forthcoming anthology, A Cultural History of the Avant-garde in the Nordic Countries 1925–50.
