Dr Aline Guillermet

Junior Research Fellow in Visual Studies at King's College


Dr Aline Guillermet received her PhD in Art History and Theory from the University of Essex in 2015. Her research interests include postwar German art, the impact of technology on contemporary painting, and digital art. Her postdoctoral research aims to investigate the ways in which digital visual culture has impacted upon painterly practices since the 1980s. It suggests that contemporary painting offers a critical vantage point from which to reflect upon the changing status of representation and aesthetic experience in the digital age.

Aline has held a Helena Rubinstein Fellowship in Critical Studies at the Whitney Museum Independent Study Program in New York (2012-13) and a Teaching Fellowship at the University of Essex (2015-16). She currently co-convenes the Digital Art Faculty Research Group at CRASSH (2017-18).
