Personal profile


Dr Judit Bodor is Baxter Fellow in Curatorial Practice (Teaching & Research) at Duncan of Jordanstone School of Art & Design. With a background in art history and arts management and a practice-led PhD in contemporary curating from Theatre, Film and Television Studies at Aberystwyth University, she has been working independently as well as part of artist-led organisations, including Artpool Art Research Center, Budapest, East Street Arts, Leeds and WAVEparticle, Glasgow since 2000. Alongside her professional career, she has held various academic positions since 2005 including Programme Leader, MA Curating at Dartington College of Arts, Creative Fellow in Teaching and Learning at York St John University, and Tutor at MLitt Curatorial Practice (Contemporary Art) at The Glasgow School of Art and MFA Fine Art at Cardiff College of Art & Design.
Judit’s work is situated at the intersection of the curatorial as an interdisciplinary, performative and collaborative mode of knowledge production and the underrepresented histories and practices of post-1960s counter-culture. Her PhD at National Museum Wales involved working from Welsh artist Ivor Davies’ archive of Destruction Art to explore curating historical performance art in contemporary museums. Her most recent curatorial projects are LIM(I)NAL (online, 2020), No such permanence, only becoming (Festival of Ephemeral Art, Sokołowsko, Poland, 2019) The Happenstance (representing Scotland at the 16th Architectural Biennale, 2018), Left Performance Histories (NGbK, Berlin 2018). She works with artists Emma Bolland and Tom Rodgers as co-founder/editors of Gordian Projects since 2014 and publishes her research regularly in collaboration with Roddy Hunter, including artpool.hu. A Users’ Guide (2021), The Poïpoïdrome in Budapest: a case study in curating art and changeability in Contemporary Art (2020) and Art, Meeting and Encounter: The Art of Action in Great Britain (2011). Her current research project What is a Living Archive? Curating the ‘unruly’ materiality of contemporary art focuses on curatorial approaches to materially and conceptually complex archives of time-based art (video and performance) and pre-Internet networked practices.
