Jungmin Lee is a fifth-year PhD candidate in Harvard’s Film and Visual Studies program. In her dissertation, she probes projection and kinetic art practices in European avant-garde movements of the 20s in relation to media installations in the 60s and today. Her research lies at the crossroad of film theory, history of art and architecture, and process philosophy. Main areas of focus include performativity, kinetics, materiality, and space.
Jungmin completed her BA with a double concentration with Honors in Modern Culture and Media and French Civilization from Brown University, attending Université Paris 1 Panthéon- Sorbonne and Paris VIII in 2010. She has worked in the curatorial department at Centre Pompidou in France and the EYE Film Instituut in the Netherlands. She is the recipient of the Brown University’s William Weston ’43 Award in Fine Arts and the Greenberg Prize in French Studies in 2011. She continues to present at international conferences in Europe and North America and treasures her teaching opportunities at Harvard.
