Dr Sara Andersdotter

Dr Sara Andersdotter is a researcher, artist and academic, with a practice-based PhD in Fine Art at the University of the Arts London, which utilises a Deleuzian framework for challenging perceptions of memory in contemporary art practice. Her thesis, 'Choking on the madeleine: encounters and alternative approaches to memory in a contemporary art practice', confronts assumptions and ocularcentric misconceptions that the mnemic is a visual or ocular phenomenon, and offers an alternative concept of memory that may be incorporated into art practice.

Sara’s work is primarily installation-based and multi-sensory, incorporating photography, video, sound, and smell. Her research interests include: memory, photography, continental philosophy, non-human experiences and the animal, ‘minor’ / fringe groups, representation, non-human photography, installation art, alternative systems of thought, and Deleuzian concepts of affect, the encounter, the image of thought, assemblage, and minor/major thought.

Sara is the Course Director for Contextual Studies at Ravensbourne, leading, overseeing and directing its operations and developments. She is also the Editor of Corrupted Files, a journal of research by staff and students at Ravensbourne as well as that of external contributors.
