Adair Rounthwaite, November 2010

Adair Rounthwaite is a PhD student in Art History at the University of Minnesota with a primary specialization in Contemporary Art, and a secondary specialization in Islamic Art. Her dissertation, provisionally entitled “Vulnerable Spaces: Martha Rosler and Group Material at DIA Art, 1988-89,” deals with the shows “If you lived here…” by Rosler and “Democracy” by Group Material, exhibitions that were key in the development of relational aesthetics, or participatory art. “If you lived here…” and “Democracy” were early uses of participation as a medium that foregrounded the role of the politicized body in relationships between subjects performed within the space of the city. Adair holds an MA in Cultural Analysis from the University of Amsterdam. Her essays have appeared in Representations (Winter 2010) and The Journal of Visual Culture (Summer 2008).

The interview can also be downloaded as a video podcast (303.2 MB) or as an audio file (.mp3 – 53.5 MB).
