Welcome, 2012! I spent so much of 2011 in Berlin that I’m very excited to be making a quick trip back next week. Many, many thanks to the generous funding of the Gerda Henkel foundation for making this trip possible. I have a few research details to follow up, some meetings to set up with colleagues, and I think I hear some pastries calling my name, too. Mostly, though, I plan to make it a week of intensive writing and exhibition planning. Time to get this show on the road!
