Lecture: Market Censorship and the Value of Art

Alana Jelinek is a London-based artist and the author of This is Not Art: Activism and Other 'Not-Art'. She is also a co-founder of the arts organisation Terra Incognita. At Decad, Jelinek will discuss her current critical work on the social-economical significance of visual culture and its relation to her past research into art practice as a potential form of activism.

Alana Jelinek holds a BA in painting from Victoria College in Melbourne, Australia; an MA in gender, society and culture from Birckbeck College, University of London; and a PhD in history of art and art practice from Oxford Brookes University. Between 2009 and 2014, Jelinek was an AHRC Fellow in Creative Arts with the Museum of Archaeology & Anthropology at the University of Cambridge. That fellowship culminated in an artist book entitled The Tale of the Fork as Narrated by Itself, a project which considers the relationship between collections, collectors and the collected by looking to the specific history of the cannibal fork. Currently Jelinek is a European Research Council Artist-in-Residence, a role in which she is participant of the Pacific Presences Project.
