Natasha Lushetich


Althanasius Kircher, Musurgia Universalis, 1650

Natasha’s written work explores the intersections between art, biopolitics and (mostly continental) philosophy. Special areas of interest include: Euro-American and Asian intermedial and interdisciplinary practices from the 1960s onwards; ethics as aesthetics; theories of hegemony; agnotology and micro-violence; theories of time and the event; complexity and hybridity.

Natasha is the author of two books, Fluxus the Practice of Non-Duality (Rodopi 2014) and Interdisciplinary Performance (Palgrave 2016). She is also editor of The Aesthetics of Necropolitics (Rowman and Littlefield 2018) and Beyond Mind, a special issue of Symbolism the annual of critical aesthetics (De Gruyter 2019). Between 2012 and 2016 Natasha led two interdisciplinary research projects – the Bridging the Gaps-funded Critical Gaming (2012-13), which explored the gamification of everyday life, and the HASS and Maudsley-Trust-funded Spaces of the Mind (2013-2016), an investigation into the production of space in neoliberal institutions of care.

Natasha is currently working on an AHRC-funded project entitled The Future of Indeterminacy: Datification, Memory, Bio-Politics and editing a collection entitled Big Data: a New Medium? (Routledge).
