Catherine Grant is a Lecturer in Visual Cultures and in Critical Studies in Art at Goldsmiths. She is currently researching the re-enactment of histories of feminism in contemporary art. Catherine is exploring re-enactment as a way of learning from history, as well as a place of fantasy and possibility for the future. Drawing on thinking about temporalities and history-making from queer and feminist theorists, as well as the construction of ‘the contemporary’ and ‘contemporary art’ in philosophy and art history, she is interested in artworks that see re-enactment as an experimental, pedagogical space. The beginning of this research has been published as “Fans of Feminism: re-writing histories of second-wave feminism in contemporary art” in the Oxford Art Journal.
Connecting these areas of research are Catherine’s interests in the intersection between feminist and queer theory, the depiction of the subject within postmodernism, the development of ‘contemporary art history’, psychoanalytic theories of identity and sexuality and issues of performativity and performance.
