Profile

Johanna Blokker studied art and architectural history as well as music at McGill University in Montreal and at the University of Toronto before joining the doctoral program at New York University's Institute of Fine Arts. Her dissertation addressed the reconstruction of Cologne's destroyed Romanesque churches after World War II: in an analysis of the public debate surrounding the treatment of the city's destroyed architectural heritage, she revealed how this heritage was mobilized and appropriated in the service of a range of political positions on Germany's history and identity, and was thereby assigned a decisive role in local processes of negotiating the past. In 2019, she completed a habilitation project that investigated American funding and support for building projects in postwar Germany that were aimed at developing a pro-Western, democratic mindset and at strengthening the former enemy as a bulwark against the Soviet East. The project was awarded the University of Bamberg Habilitation Prize for 2019.

In additional research projects and publications, Prof. Blokker explores the discourses of heritage as they relate to cultural and memory politics, most recently in the context of conservative cultural critique by right-wing groups in Germany. These topics are central to her teaching at the Brandenburg University of Technology, where she took over the Chair in Architectural Conservation in 2021. A further area of focus centres on encounter and exchange among heritage cultures across national and territorial boundaries, topics she pursues in cooperation with a number of partners abroad. 

Prof. Blokker is a member of the Association of Critical Heritage Studies, the Memory Studies Association with its Working Group on Memory and Populism, DoCoMoMo Germany, and the Working Group on Theory and Education in Heritage Conservation (AKTLD).
