Lecturer in the History of Art and Material Studies
What is your education and/or training?I work as a Lecturer in the History of Art and Material Studies in the Department of History of Art, University College London. Before joining UCL, I was Andrew W. Mellon Visiting Professor at the Bard Graduate Centre in New York (2013-2015). I have been authored or contributed to several research project, such as, among others, Object in Flux that concerns the legacy of Fluxus objects, events, performances and ephemera and which was supported by the Getty Foundation residential grant (2016-2017, Getty Conservation Institute); Cultures of Conservation at Bard (supported by the Mellon Foundation); and New Strategies in the Conservation of Contemporary Art (supported by NWO Dutch Scientific Foundation, 2009-2013). I was a Visiting Scholar at the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science in Berlin (2015) and Research Fellow at the University of Amsterdam (2009-2013). I published two monographs: Paik’s Virtual Archive: Time, Change and Materiality in Media Art (University of California Press, 2017), and Revisions—Zen for Film (Bard Graduate Centre and University of Chicago Press, 2015) which accompanied an eponymous exhibition at the Bard Graduate Center Gallery in New York (17.09.2015—21.02.2016). My writings focus on the aspects of time, change, materiality and archive in relation to how we conceive of artworks in terms of objects that endure.
