Laureates

With its scholar’s prize, the Wissenschaftspreis, the Aby Warburg Foundation has been recognizing outstanding research in the field of art history, cultural studies, and the humanities every year since 1995. An integral part of the award is that prizewinners are also expected to give a lecture at the Warburg Haus.
The Martin Warnke Medal was endowed by the Aby Warburg Foundation and Universität Hamburg to mark the retirement of art historian Professor Martin Warnke from the Kunstgeschichtliches Seminar. Since 2005, it has been awarded every three years for academic achievements in the field of cultural studies. The prize is named after Martin Warnke, who was professor of art history at Universität Marburg from 1971 to 1978. From 1979, he taught at Universität Hamburg and served as the director of the Research Centre for Political Iconography at the Warburg Haus in Hamburg. In 1991, he was awarded the Leibniz Prize. He retired in 2002 and was bestowed with the title professor emeritus. Martin Warnke is a member of the Akademie für Sprache und Dichtung. In 2006, he received the Gerda Henkel Prize, an international research prize awarded by the Gerda Henkel Stiftung Düsseldorf, and was granted an honorary doctorate by the Technische Universität Dresden in 2007 and by the Technische Universität Dortmund in 2010.
