"A Play of Light and Cloth: Textile, Materiality and Film" (Arbeitstitel), Dissertationsprojekt, seit 07/2020

In my PhD project, I theorize the relationship of textiles and film in Modernity and am especially interested in questions of materiality and mediality. Textiles did not only appear in the image – e.g. costumes, fashion, moving fabrics – but were also part of the production process as filters or appeared as technologies of screening, veiling or dissolving. Lastly, I am interested in questions of epistemology, meaning in the forms of sensorial and corporeal knowledge that have been produced by the different configurations.
