PhD student in the Division of Art History and Visual Studies.
The main theoretical fields that influence my research are performance theory, queer feminism and art historiography. The objective of my PhD project ‘PERFORMING SHAME: affective resistance, aesthetic judgment and art histories' is to examine a number of performances (1995-2014) that critically enhances how principles of exclusion on the art scene and within art history can be unfolded through a conscious use of shame as an artistic medium.
Keywords: Art Historiography, Queer Theory, Shame, Performance Art, Aesthetic Judgment, Visual Culture, Feminist Theory
I will visit the University of Southern California, Los Angeles, as a short-term scholar during Fall semester of 2018 and Spring semester of 2019.
