Contemporary Feminine Aesthetics After Postfeminism
My research investigates the relationship between 1990s-early 2000s postfeminist discourses of empowerment and constructions of female subjectivity in contemporary fictional genres aimed at women and girls.
The primary aim of the thesis is to better understand the impact of postfeminist empowerment discourse on women whose coming of age coincided with the height of its cultural ubiquity, and to explore the continuing postfeminist legacy in girlhood coming-of-age genres. To do this, I focus on the shifting affective registers of postfeminist culture and the role feelings and emotions play in constituting female subjectivity.
Art Collectives in Israel
My research examines art collectives in relation to social and political changes in Israel, as well in relation to similar worldwide socially engaged art. It aims to contribute to the understanding of the socio-political potential of art. From a local perspective, my research aims to contribute to the development of a theoretical framework through which to read Israeli art from social and political perspectives, with emphasis on historical and current moments in which art, politics, and social change intersect.
What are the precursors to transformative moments within socially engaged arts practice?
I write as a participant, as an artist and as a member of the local community. By adopting artistic research methods, and specifically, by making work in the place where I live, which could be considered a form of auto-ethnographic artistic research, the research analyses social artistic processes from the perspective of the artist, adding to debates around what social arts practice is, and what its limits are in its original social context and within the gallery and documentary systems of dissemination.
