Dr. Qiuzi Guo

4A_Lab Fellow

Qiuzi Guo is a Postdoctoral Fellow in the interdisciplinary programme 4A Laboratory: Art Histories, Archaeologies, Anthropologies, Aesthetics (July 2021–July 2022). She completed her Ph.D in East Asian Art History at Heidelberg University in 2019. In her doctoral dissertation, titled “When Kodak Came to China: Photography, Amateurs, and Visual Modernity, 1900-1937”, she explored how early Chinese amateur photographers contributed to the growth of Chinese visual modernity by adapting the idioms of Euro-American artists to local artistic expressions. Qiuzi Guo’s main research interests are the history of Chinese photography and the digitalization of cultural heritage. Her published articles shed light on various archives of unpublished private photographs taken by both amateur photographers and ordinary hobbyist photographers in Republican China.
