Magda Pustoła - sociologist, art theoretician, author of numerous articles about art, culture and politics published in various newspapers, magazines and online publications (e.g. Obieg, Gazeta Wyborcza, Rzeczpospolita, Krytyka Polityczna), as well as of essays to the catalogues of art exhibitions (e.g. 'Enthusiasm' in Whitechapel Gallery, 'You won't feel a thing' in Dresden Kunsthaus). Collaborates with Wyspa Institute of Art, Obieg and Krytyka Polityczna. Currently completes the MA in Contemporary Art Theories at the Department of Visual Cultures, Goldsmiths College, and her PhD in Sociology at the Department of Sociology, Warsaw University. Her interests oscillate around the post-identitarian modes of subjectivity and the conditions of producing a polythetic space for uncompromisable, untranslatable, often conflicted practices. Lives and works in London. Blogs irregularly at http://www.whatevermaida.blogsome.com/.
