On March 2 at noon in the Widener Art Gallery, poet and performance artist Dr. Andrea Zittlau will offer an event showcasing her poetry performance art. The event is free and all are welcome.
Andrea Zittlau is a lecturer and postdoctoral researcher in North American Studies at the University of Rostock. Her doctoral research focused on ethnographic museums and theories of display treating exhibitions as haunting performances. Furthermore, she has worked with and about performance artists such as the group La Pocha Nostra, Erica Mott, and Natalie Brewster Ngyuen. Andrea’s current work deals with nineteenth-century trial reports, psychiatry and theories of disorder and absence. Her publications include the edited volume (with Anna Kerchy) Exploring the Cultural History of Continental European Freakshows and Enfreakment (2012) and the monograph Curious Exotica (Ink on Paper) (2015).
