Victoria Ivanova researches, writes, curates, speaks, and consults on innovative approaches to policy, finance, and rights in the sphere of contemporary art and beyond. Having previously worked in the human rights field, Ivanova in 2010 co-founded a multidisciplinary cultural platform in Donetsk, Ukraine, which explored the intersections between activism, education, and artistic production. Today, her practice is largely informed by systems analysis and her interest in infrastructures as mechanisms for shaping and (re)producing socioeconomic and political realities. Ivanova holds an MSc in human rights from the London School of Economics and an MA in curatorial studies from the Center for Curatorial Studies at Bard College, New York. She is currently completing her PhD in cultural studies at Goldsmiths, University of London.
