Lecture by Katharina Steidl as part of the Visual Communication guest lecture series "Schnittstelle".

KatharinaSteidl studied art history at the universities of Vienna, Zaragoza and Berlin. In 2015, she completed her dissertation on the photogram in the 19th century at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna, which was awarded the DGPh Research Prize for the History of Photography. In it, she explores the "blind spots" of photography historiography by foregrounding the female contribution to the development of the photogram and eroding common narratives of its origins.

Steidl has held research positions at the Center for the Theory and History of the Image - eikones (Basel), the Center for Literary and Cultural Research (Berlin) and the Max Planck Institute for Art History (Florence), among others. 

Her work focuses on the history and theory of photography, gender history, the history of science and materiality.
