Sabine de Günther is an art and costume researcher and currently assists the project »Indexing of Collections«. She examines clothing and textiles, not just in terms of their aesthetic appearance but also as markers of identity. Garment and garment decoration primarily interest her as a determinant of significance and iconography. Sabine de Günther studied History of Art, Romance languages and Media Studies in Marburg, London and Venice. After obtaining her Master’s degree, she gained practical experience in museums, which included working as part of a European collection indexing project for poster art. In conjunction with the indexing projects »Fashion Photography« and »Fashion in the cartoon« she began focusing more on costume and clothing studies.
