Dr. Lucie Kolb
Lucie Kolb is a senior researcher of critical publishing and research-based learning at the Critical Media Lab at FHNW Academy of Arts and Design. Working at the intersection of art history, media studies, and artistic research, she is the editor of a number of books, including Artwork as Institution (BNL 2019), Paratexte (Diaphanes 2018), and Art Handling (JRP 2016) and the curator of exhibitions such as Reading the Library (Sitterwerk St.Gallen 2021) and Wir publizieren (Kunsthalle Bern 2020). Her first monograph Study, Not Critique (Transversal Texts 2018) dealt with the fine line between self-determined knowledge production and a commodified form of critique and examined artists’ magazines since the 1970s. She was awarded the Cité internationale des arts grant by visarte.ost in Paris (2022) and Landis & Gyr residency in London (2022). Lucie is the founding member and co-editor of the online magazine Brand-New-Life.
