Alexandra Symons Sutcliffe
June – July 2020
Alexandra Symons Sutcliffe works as an art critic, art historian and freelance curator. During her time in Munich she will focus on the format of reading groups as sites of co-operative knowledge production. Uneconomical in time and space – reading groups allow for productless work and exchanges which are anti-professional and self-defining. Symons Sutcliffe is currently working towards a PhD on British portrait and documentary photography from the 1970s and 80s at Birkbeck University and the National Portrait Gallery, both in London.
