PhD student in the Division of Art History and Visual Studies.

The preliminary title of my PhD project is “PORTRAYING UNEASE".

Based on the works of five artists: Laura Aguilar (US), T.J. Dedeaux Norris (US), Sands Murray-Wassink (NE), Jenny Grönvall (SE) and Xandra Ibarra (US), my thesis aim to explore certain problems and limitations embedded in feminist and queer feminist visual methodologies. By contemplating on how certain kinds of visual art become associated with radically, repair, opposition, political productivity and emancipatory qualities in the critical writing of many present day feminist and queer feminist visual scholars, this study explores visual theories wherein art, and particularly representations of structural discrimination, has a tendency to circulate as social goods, as what Sara Ahmed calls “happy objects,” - objects associated with positive value.
