Julia Morandeira Arrizabalaga is a curator, researcher, and educator. She is Director of the Paris branch of KADIST and lecturer at Leiden University, where she coordinates the minor Social and Ecological Justice Activism in the Visual Arts. Her work is situated at the intersection of cultural studies and critical theory, practices stemming from the artistic, visual, and performative, as much as educational, social, and political intervention, and her projects are articulated in long-term curatorial investigations such as Canibalia, Be careful with each other, so we can be dangerous together, Social Choreographies, Night Studies, or The Hauntologists. Previous positions include curator of the Post-Academic Program at BAK, basis voor actuele kunst in Utrecht; director of escuelita at CA2M-Centro de Arte Dos de Mayo in Móstoles; curator of the Opening section at ARCO Madrid; or mediator of public driven commissions as part of Concomitentes / New Patrons initiative.
