Project-Oriented Individual Research

Project-Oriented Individual Research

Individual work on scholarly subjects stems from the Stiftung Preußische Schlösser und Gärten Berlin-Brandenburg’s responsibility for the cultural heritage of the Hohenzollern dynasty and, therefore, for the history and art history of Brandenburg-Prussia. For some years, many studies have concentrated on the 18th century, primarily on the era of Frederick the Great. Research also focuses on the cultural legacy of the monarchy in the modern age. Investigative approaches from both the humanities and natural sciences are combined in order to identify and evaluate the continuing influence of monarchial elements on today’s political culture. The research helps answer questions as to whether and how the cultural heritage should be preserved, left alone, enhanced or reconstructed.
