New Guest Blogger: Dehlia Hannah


It has been a fun two weeks with Quinn Latimer as she offered us a window into her corner of the Swiss art world. We traveled to the “Holbein to Tillmans” exhibition, visited new “roommates” Plattfon + Stampa, read some thoughts on the relationship (if any) between high culture and crime in Dresden, and enjoyed her musings about wandering the streets of Basel.

Next up, we welcome our latest blogger-in-residence, Dehlia Hannah.

Dehlia Hannah is a Ph.D. candidate in Philosophy at Columbia University completing a dissertation entitled “Nature Vexed: Scientific Experiment as Aesthetic Form,” which examines the use of scientific methods and materials in contemporary art and the aesthetics of scientifically-mediated nature.

She is a graduate of Smith College, where she studied philosophy and chemistry, and has received an M. Phil. and a Certificate in Feminist Inquiry from the Institute for Research on Women and Gender at Columbia University. Her areas of specialization are philosophy of science and aesthetic theory and philosophy of art, and her work is informed by feminist and queer theory.

She is currently teaching Contemporary Civilization in the West at Columbia College.

Her posts will begin tomorrow.
