Karolina Uggla

Karolina Uggla holds a PhD in art history from Stockholm University and has a long-standing interest in intersections between art, visual culture and science. Her dissertation Art and mapping around 1970 (2015) discovers maps as a motive and mapping as a process in conceptual art from the years around 1970. Karolina Uggla has been teaching art history, mainly art of the 20th and 21st century, art theory, aesthetics and visual studies. In her current research project Karolina Uggla aims to analyse how and why the visualisation of computer generated data follows certain established forms created in pre-computerized environments despite the recent and rapid technological innovations.
