Anna Marazuela Kim is completing her PhD in the History of Art and Architecture at the University of Virginia, where she is one of two dissertation fellows in the Arts and Sciences supported by the Jefferson Scholars Foundation. Her research engages the deep structures of our complex relation to images, from antiquity to the present, drawing together ethics and aesthetics, phenomenology, theories of the image and religion.
Anna studied intellectual history at Notre Dame, and philosophy and classics at Brown University, where she was an Andrew Mellon Fellow in the Humanities. Between graduate studies, she worked on a variety of projects in civil rights and education, in Nicaragua, the U.S. and post-Soviet Ukraine. Currently at the Institute, she is involved in two projects that bring her broad training and experience to bear on issues of contemporary concern: one on the image and self in relation to technology; another on the place of beauty in the revitalization of American cities.
Anna is also a member of an international network of scholars and curators advancing a comparative-historical study of iconoclasm, funded for the past two years by the Arts and Humanities Research Council in the U.K. Members of the team have produced an exhibition, Art Under Attack: Histories of British Iconoclasm, which opened October 2013 at Tate Britain in London.
