Research interests

In my research I take Pierre Bourdieu’s theory of symbolic violence to explore how performance helps perpetuating subtle forms of violence that are regarded as normal by society. In my practice I follow filmmaker Jill Godmilow’s ideas of making documentaries outside pornography of the real to show how non-fiction can help re-educate the audience’s gaze.
