Dorothy Hunter

Dorothy Hunter is the second Critic in Residence at studio das weisse haus – in our first cooperation with Der Standard.

Dorothy Hunter is a Northern Irish artist and art writer based in Belfast. She is interested in the politics of space and regeneration within art, and how visual culture is utilised in processes of preservation and re-presentation. Her writing often explores the politics of an artwork’s or exhibition’s context, and the dialogue of certain “realities” in art media. She is particularly interested in art that spans across disciplines and audiences, and the spheres and actions in which art is presented and validated.
