Sara Hillnhuetter studied art history, philosophy and comparative literature in Berlin, Madrid, and New York. Between 2012 and 2018, she took part as a research and teaching assistant in the group “Das Technische Bild” (The Technical Image) at the Institute of Art and Visual History at Humboldt University of Berlin. She taught classes in the history of perspective painting, photography, and the role of images within the history of science and the humanities. Furthermore, she was a member of the editorial board for the periodical Bildwelten des Wissens. Since 2015, she has been working on her doctorate at Humboldt University, focusing on Albrecht Meydenbauer’s (1834-1921) measurement practice, which she uses to examine the medial overlapping of perspective drawing and photography. In addition, she has been an associated doctoral student at the research training group “The Photographic Dispositive” at the HBK Braunschweig. Since April 2020, she has been working as a research associate in the LOEWE cluster “Architectures of Order” in the sub-project “Axonometry as symbolic form,” led by Barbara Wittmann.
