Personal profile


I am a ph.d. from the Department of Arts and Cultural Studies specialised in photography. My work is interdisciplinary, and I combine the theory of photography and media studies, cultural history and the history of science as well as digital cultural heritage and digital humanities.

At the Royal Danish Library I have contributed to the exhibition Det er løgn. Forskerfusk og forfalskninger (2012). I have curated Lay Down Your Arms (2014), and co-curated Blind Spots. Images of the Danish West Indies colony (2017-2018) and The Camera and Us (2021-2023). I am currently working on the next collection based exhibition which will open in 2024.

I am also part of the research project Queer Women 1880-2020 (New Histories of Same-Sex Relationships 1880–2020) funded by the Independent Research Fund Denmark and led by Professor Rikke Andreassen at Roskilde University. Ine the project I am analysing the visual representation of queer women. I work with different genres from early studio photography and photoalbums to the current representation on social media. 

I am part of the research network The Art of Nordic Colonialism Writing Transcultural Art Histories and of TPT Thinking Photography Today.
