I teach courses in the Department of History of Art and Architecture, the Comparative Literature Program, and the Department of Germanic and Slavic Studies at the University of California, Santa Barbara. I specialize in modern and contemporary art, aesthetic and critical theory, and global and transnational art and art history. My books and articles have appeared in English, German, Korean, Spanish, Russian, Swedish, Albanian, and Polish. I am a co-founder of the Working Group Cultures of World Socialism, and the founding editor of ARTMargins Online and ARTMargins Print Journal (MIT Press). My latest book publication is a co-edited volume about acousmatic sound in art and culture (Akusmatik als Labor, ed. with Mario Asef. Koenigshausen Neumann, 2023) and the monograph Art as Demonstration: A Revolutionary Recasting of Knowledge (MIT Press. forthcoming in Feb. 2024). Also forthcoming is Socialist Exhibition Culture. International Art Exhibitions in the Socialist World, 1950-1990 (ed., Toronto University Press).
