My research interests concern the geographies and politics of contemporary art, artistic practice and cultural work. These interests are currently developed through an interdisciplinary project on the construction of value in the art market, with a specific focus on the privatisation of the contemporary art world. This project is developed through a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowship together with the Department of Geography at Royal Holloway University of London, 2017 – 2018.
I’m also involved in a research project of smaller scale focusing on how digital technologies are creating shifting working patterns and work spaces, and how these transformations are intertwined with new configurations of labour, and in particular, women’s labour. One key example of this impact is the rise of fashion bloggers as a new segment of workers: workers that are utilizing new technologies to turn their personal lives and style into online businesses, through the specific use of blogs and other forms of social media. Such emerging online work calls for new critical investigation into women's labour and aesthetic labour, and into what opportunities and most importantly what demands are now being placed upon these entrepreneurs and this new profession in the fashion industry.
I am involved in teaching at the department’s PhD program in Culture Studies.
