Since 2003, Johannes Warda has pursued a multi-dimensional curriculum: American studies, political science, musicology, and architecture at universities in Jena, Weimar, and Berkeley. He is currently finishing his MA thesis in his major, modern history. His explorations of our life space go beyond the analytical levels of cultural studies and will continue to trigger responses in the form of photographs, text-image combinations, or community action. Warda’s new project challenging the humanities in a combination of theoretical reflection and field work is underway. It will integrate the built environment’s historic materials into rethinking life-work relations.
