About Theresa Deichert

Theresa Deichert is a doctoral candidate in history of art and transcultural studies under the supervision of Prof. Monica Juneja. Her research examines strategies and practices in Japanese contemporary art that deal with the altered ecologies of the nuclear catastrophe of the Fukushima Daiichi of March 2011 and its surrounding exclusion zone. 

She holds a B.A. in Cultural Studies from Jacobs University Bremen and a Postgraduate Diploma in History of Art from the Courtauld Institute of Art, London. In 2014 she graduated with an M.A. with TJ Demos and Briony Fer in History of Art from University College London, where she specialized in contemporary art and globalization, as well as the writing of art theory.Theresa has gained work experience at a number of museums in the UK and Germany. Most recently she concluded a two-year curatorial traineeship (wissenschaftliches Volontariat) at the Institut Mathildenhöhe, Darmstadt. Therefore, her interest is also in the dissulution of boundaries between spaces of knowledge production and dissemination, for instance between academics and cultural institutions.
