ERC Advanced Grant FilmColors, University of Zurich
PhD student
From 2008 to 2015 I studied Art History, Film Studies and the Theory and History of Photography at the University of Zurich. In my master thesis I developed a filmic portrait of the swiss artist MARCK and produced a 40 minutes documentary from an art historian’s perspective. Since 2016 I have been working on my dissertation about the relationship between the aesthetics and technological aspects of chromogenic colour films in the period between 1955 and 1995.
