First monographic book on the unique work of Korean-American artist Theresa Hak Kyung Cha (1951-1982), at the crossroads of performance, of conceptual art, of video and of poetry.
Elvan Zabunyan, contemporary art historian, is a teacher at University Rennes 2 and art critic. Her research is about North-American art from the 1960s and particularly the turning point of the year 1970 around racial and feminist questions. She has been working since the beginning of the 1990s on the issues shown by cultural studies, postcolonialist theories and gender studies, trying to build, thanks to critical thoughts, a methodology of history of contemporary art articulated around a cultural, social and political history. She published Black is a color, A History of African American Art (Dis Voir, 2004), she co-edited several books and wrote many articles in collective works, exhibition catalogues and periodicals.
