John Hulsey is a doctoral candidate in Film and Visual Studies and Critical Media Practice. He completed his A.B. at Harvard College and his maîtrise at the Université Paris-III Sorbonne Nouvelle (Cinéma et Audio-Visuel). His research and artistic practice sit at the intersection of multiple histories: film and video, collaborative performance, social movement activism. His dissertation, Taking Place: Contemporary Art and the Tactical Occupation of Space examines work from the 1970s to the present that challenges received notions of property, place, and land in the neoliberal city. He has taught at NYU in Paris and written on a variety of topics for publications in the U.S. and Europe. His work has been exhibited at the U.S. Pavilion of the Venice Architecture Biennial, Creative Time’s Living as Form (The Nomadic Version), among other venues.
