Hello, this is my website. It’s basically a place for me to post up things I’ve written, which are mostly about art, theory and politics in various combinations. As an academic my research focuses on the history of activist-art practices, and art in social movements in the twentieth century. I have a related interest in the intellectual history of movement ideas, especially theories of revolution-as-festival. You can find some things I’ve written about these areas under the ‘writing’ tab to the left.
As far as employment goes, I’m currently visiting research fellow at the Victoria and Albert Museum, and lecturer in contemporary art and curating at the University of Essex’s Art History department. I’ve previously taught at Manchester, Birkbeck and Goldsmiths universities.
I like to hear from people interested in similar things. You can write to me at GavinGrindon @ Gmail [dot] com
