Katrine Annesdatter-Madsen

PhD Candidate

I hold a BA and MA in scandinavian studies as well as visual art and visual culture from Aarhus University (2019). My PhD project deals with women's art in 1970s Norway as practices of material resistance.

I am part of the national research project FLAME: The Feminist Legacy in Art Museums led by Ulla Angkjær-Jørgensen (NTNU) and co-lead by Sigrun Åsebø (UiB). FLAME is funded by The Research Council of Norway.

My research interests include:

  • Transnational art
  • Women's (avantgarde) art in the 20th and 21st centuries
  • (Feminist/new) Materialist and posthuman philosophies of difference
  • Affect theory
  • Speculative pragmatism
  • Decoloniality and post-colonialism
