Hayan Kim

Visiting Assistant Professor of Art

Dr. Hayan Kim is a historian of modern and contemporary art focusing on artists’ video, film and moving images since the 1960s. Her research questions include how visual and communication technologies have affected the ways in which we see, feel and think; how artists respond to the changing sensorial, psychological, and social conditions through their works: and, in doing so, how they address critical issues such as postcolonialism, race and gender.

Apart from teaching and researching, she enjoys visiting historic landmarks and Frank Lloyd Wright houses, and baking Danish rye bread from scratch.
