Sophie Kromholz

I am a creative researcher and art historian, interested in experience driven art, collecting practices, and psychogeography, and how how our interaction with our immediate surroundings and landscape informs the stories we tell, and who we become. I have taught and lectured internationally, including at University of Glasgow and Maastricht University. I completed my PhD, “The Artwork Is Not Present: An investigation into the durational engagement with temporary artworks”, at the University of Glasgow in 2016. I previously also coordinated CoCARe – the interdisciplinary PhD and Postdoc Network for Conservation of Contemporary Art Research. Publications include “Collectible: The Social and Ethical Implications Surrounding the Collected Object” in Art, Cultural Heritage and the Market Ethical and Legal Issues, (Springer, 2014); “Living in the Material World – Making Sense of Material Matters in Relation to Temporary Artworks”, North Street Review, (2016); “What’s the Matter? – Deconstructing the material lives of experience driven artworks”, AM Journal of Art and Media Studies, (2016); and “Absence Makes the Heart Grow Fonder: Experiencing the temporary artwork without the physical work”, Studies in Theatre and Performance, (Taylor & Francis, August 2018).
