Jeffrey Saletnik

Jeffrey Saletnik is an assistant professor of modern art 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 coedited 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.
