Personal profile


Prof. Natasha Lushetich is an artist and theorist. Both her practice and her theoretical work are interdisciplinary; they unfold in the extended fields of intermedia, performance and interventionism exploring the status of sensory experience in cultural knowledge, biopolitics, hegemony, disorder and their intersections with (continental) philosophy. A founder member of subRosa, she is the recipient of numerous fellowships and residencies such as Fulbright (NYU, New York), Steim (Amsterdam), Noorderzon (Groningen), and ArtsLink (Cleveland & NYC). Her artistic work has been shown in a range of conventional venues - museums, film and performance festivals in Europe, Asia and the US - in less conventional venues - banks and the street - as well as supported by the Art Council of England; The Mondrian Foundation; The VSB Foundation; The Amsterdam Fund for the Arts; and The Dutch Fund for the Performing Arts, among others.

Prof. Lushetich holds a PhD from the University of Exeter and is the author of two books: Fluxus: the Practice of Non-Duality (Rodopi 2014) and Interdisciplinary Performance (Palgrave 2016). She is also co-editor of On Game Structures (Taylor and Francis 2016); editor of The Aesthetics of Necropolitics (Rowman and Littlefield 2018) and editor of Beyond Mind, a special issue of Symbolism, the International Annual of Critical Aesthetics (De Gruyter 2019). Her recent writing has appeared in such cross-disciplinary journals as Artnodes; Contemporary Aesthetics; Environment, Place, Space; Media Theory; Performance Research; Text and Performance Quarterly, TDR, The Journal of Somaesthetics and Total Art Journal and in a number of edited collections. Prof. Lushetich has led two interdisciplinary research projects, the Bridging the Gaps-funded Critical Gaming (2012-13) and the HASS- and Maudsley-funded Spaces of the Mind (2013-2016). She has taught internationally and is the recipient of three teaching awards. She is also a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and an editorial member of the Anthem Series in Critical Thought and Evental Aesthetics.
