PhD 

She gained her PhD in 2019 from the Film and Visual Culture department at the University of Aberdeen. She was supervised by Prof. Amy Bryzgel (Visual Culture) and Dr. Jo Vergunst (Anthropology). 

Her thesis  'Biopolitical Art in Central-Eastern Europe. Participatory Art in the Czech-Republic, Slovakia and Poland from the 1960s up to today.' ​focuses on Biopolitical art projects. By expanding on art historian Angela Dimitrakaki’s definition of the shift from the artist’s body (performance) to the artist’s life (biopolitical art), I propose that in collaborative socially engaged art projects from Central-Eastern Europe in the 2000s, it is not only the “life of the artist” but even the “lives of the participants” which constitutes art.
