Dr. Jeffrey Saletnik



Dr. Jeffrey Saletnik is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Art History at Indiana University. His research engages the social infrastructures and mechanisms that undergird cultural production: pedagogy, emigration networks, material culture, and modes of translation. He has published essays on Josef Albers, László Moholy-Nagy, John Cage, and Robert Rauschenberg and co-edited Bauhaus Construct: Fashioning Identity, Discourse, and Modernism, a volume that addresses how so-called Bauhaus objects—from teapots and documentary photographs to the Bauhaus manifesto broadsheet and copyright documentation—were employed to model the school’s identity. Additional information about his research is available here. He is completing a book-length study of Albers’s teaching methods while an Alexander von Humboldt Foundation fellow at the Institut für Kunst- und Bildgeschichte at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin.
