Estelle Blaschke

I am a historian of photography working in the intersection between art and media history, the history of science and cultural history. I am interested in the circulation of images, image infrastructures, and concepts of photography as information technology. From 2015 to 2020, I conducted research on the history of microfilm at the University of Lausanne. I hold an interim professorship in media studies at the University of Basel since February 2020 and teach photography history and theory at ECAL. I am also a member of the editorial committee of the journal Transbordeur. Photographie, Histoire, Société and part of the artistic collaborations The Migrant Image Research Group, Double Bound Economies and Image Capital, together with Armin Linke.
