BR report: lego & history - the legostudies?

March 23, 2020:

The BR made a small video contribution about me and my project. It is about how I actually work and what kind of questions I ask myself during my project. To what extent can LEGO be investigated as a medium for the representation of history, and what can this investigation actually achieve for us? What can you get out of representing LEGO models? To what extent does this change one's views of history?


On my YouTube channel, you can view a brief summary of these questions in this short post. To make it understandable for non-German speakers, I have added English subtitles. Many thanks to the Bayerischer Rundfunk for this contribution.
