Jenny Anger is professor of art history at Grinnell College. Her book, Four Metaphors of Modernism: From Der Sturm to the Société Anonyme (University of Minnesota Press, 2018), which is featured in her Rorotoko interview, examines the centrality of metaphor in the creative output of both arts organizations, arguing for a reassessment of modernism in general. Her first book, Paul Klee and the Decorative in Modern Art (Cambridge University Press, 2004) explored the critical role of the decorative in that artist’s career and in modern art. Anger received her M.A. and Ph.D. from Brown University.
