Research

Katrine Annesdatter-Madsen is a PhD Fellow in art history at the University of Bergen. She holds a BA and MA in Scandinavian studies and visual art and visual culture from Aarhus University, Denmark. She is part of the NFR-funded research project The Feminist Legacy in Art Museums (FLAME).

Her PhD  thesis explores the art of Norwegian artist Sidsel Paaske (1937-1980), focusing on her work in the 1970s. Her research area encompasses the Norwegian art scenes of the 1960s and 1970s, with a focus on women artists, feminist art, and artists associated with pop art, nouveau réalisme, and neo-dadaism. Theoretically and methodologically, her project is anchored in a new materialist/posthumanist, ecofeminist, and process philosophical framework.
