Katarina Wadstein MacLeod

Associate professor in Art history at Södertörn University

Membership period 2017–2022

I am an associate professor in art history with a focus on modern and contemporary art. Since my PhD about girl figures in contemporary art I have dealt with politics of representation in the production of art and its impact on how art is exposed. Currently I am writing a monograph on domesticity as a theme in art during the 20th century. Further, how this theme relates to city planning, the women’s liberation movement as well as to questions of identity and sexuality.

Born: 1973
Interests: My research about art involves an active participation in the public discourse about culture that is always ongoing. Otherwise I engage in equestrian sports as often as possible and most preferably dressage.
Other: When I was 25, I moved to London where I lived for ten years, an experience that transformed my perspective on most things.
