About Karin Wagner

Professor in Art history and visual studies

Deputy head of research

Research

Since I received my Ph.D. degree in art history and visual studies in 2003 I have conducted research in the areas of photography, new media and visual communication.

During 2016-19 I will take part in the project Conjuring up the Artist from the Archives: The Case of Ivar Arosenius, funded by the Bank of Sweden Tercentenary Foundation.

In the project The (un)sustainable package (Bank of Sweden Tercentenary Foundation and the Swedish Research Council 2009-2011) I have studied packaging design and how organic food is marketed with the help of packaging. The book with the same name as the project contains three in-depth studies on milk packaging, pharmaceutical packaging and luxury packaging. My contributions concern organic milk, the pharmaceutical rhetoric that is used to market some food and how the use of bag-in-box, PET-bottles and cartons for the packaging of wine has influenced the visual communication.

In a previous project, From celluloid to pixels: Network and ritual around mobile phone camera and e-cinema (the Swedish Research Council 2006-2008) I studied how people publish mobile phones photographs on the Internet and what pictorial conventions they use.

Teaching

In 2016, I will mainly tech postgraduate courses. Previously, I have taught courses on visualisation, digital film-making and interaction design. In addition to being a supervisor for doctoral students in art and visual culture, I am also mentor for doctoral students in digital representation at Chalmers and at the Valand Academy.
