Naomi Vogt
Campus Affiliation: Graduate Center
Research Interests: Visiting Postdoctoral Fellow
Naomi Vogt is an early postdoctoral fellow of the Swiss Research Council (SNF) at The Graduate Center, after completing the first half of her fellowship at University College London. In 2017, she also was the Franz Roh Fellow at the Zentralinstitut für Kunstgeschichte in Munich. Her doctoral thesis at the University of Oxford, 'Inventing Ritual: Moving Images of Social Reality in Contemporary Art' (completed in 2018), addressed the boundaries between representing and producing new rituals through film, across recent art and visual social practices. At CUNY, she will be working on publications stemming from this research, while beginning a new project on the expansion of moving image tropes, genres and scenarios into everyday life, studied through the lens of contemporary practices in art and film. She holds an MA in History of Art and Visual Culture from Oxford, a BA in Archaeology and Art History from the Sorbonne, and a foundation degree in filmmaking from ECAL, Lausanne. She has taught several courses on modern and contemporary art at the Ruskin School of Art and History of Art departments at Oxford, and is an associate fellow of the Higher Education Academy. She has contributed articles to Third Text, Cineaste and edited volumes, and is a co-founder and editor of the journal OAR: The Oxford Artistic and Practice Based Research Platform.
