Rosa Wevers is a PhD candidate in Gender Studies at Utrecht University. She has received funding from NWO to conduct research for the project ‘Facing Surveillance: Artistic Strategies in Times of Control’, for which she analyses exhibitions of ‘surveillance art’ in Western Europe. She investigates how contemporary artists are creating tangible and critical responses to surveillance technologies (such as biometrics and CCTV) and their social, political and cultural implications. The project is supervised by Prof. dr. Rosemarie Buikema, Prof. dr. Beatrice de Graaf and dr. Christine Quinan.
Rosa completed a research MA in Gender Studies (cum laude) and a BA in Liberal Arts and Sciences at Utrecht University. During her research Master, Rosa spent a semester at Lund University (Sweden) to specialize in Visual Culture. Between 2017 and 2019, Rosa has worked at Utrecht University as a teacher in Gender Studies, and as a coordinator of the Gender and Diversity Hub and the Museum of Equality and Difference (MOED). Rosa’s research interests include Gender Studies, Surveillance Studies and Visual Culture.
