Iberian and Ibero-American Art History
About the Iberian and Ibero-American Art History in Heidelberg / Ibero Library Heidelberg
What started out in the 1960s with Prof. Dr. Erwin Walter Palm is able to present today one of the best equipped libraries (ca. 8.797 volumes, last updated: 2021/12/31) about iberian and ibero-american art and cultural history in Germany. In addition, the Ibero Library is offering a highly appealing course range and international collaboration with Spain, Portugal and Ibero-America. With the new “Bachelor-Plus” international study program introduced in 2011 we are holding an attractive field of study within the European Art History.
Additionally to our main topics on medieval art, american urbanism and architectural history courses also cover applied arts, photography as well as the new media. Moreover the Ibero Library offers courses with practical relevance for the cultural heritage preservation as well as curatorial field.
The program cooperates with the University of León (Spain) and comprises eight semesters, integrating one year abroad. In addition to the course offerings, the institute hosts periodical guest lectures on current topics of research within the ibero and ibero-american art and cultural history.
