Nathan Stobaugh is a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Art & Archaeology. His research focuses on modern and contemporary art with an emphasis on art produced in Europe after the Second World War. Before coming to Princeton, Nathan received a master’s degree in the History of Art at Williams College after two years of work in the curatorial department of the Saint Louis Art Museum, where he collaborated on a survey of German art since the 1960s. In the spring of 2018, he led a team of students who curated the exhibition Hanne Darboven’s Address—Place and Time, sited at the Princeton University Art Museum and other locations on Princeton’s campus, which was accompanied by a series of readings, lectures, and performances on the show’s opening day. Nathan’s dissertation research, which has been supported by the Fulbright Program and the Internationales Forschungszentrum Kulturwissenschaften, Vienna, as well as a Hyde Grant from Princeton, traces the work of the Austrian artist VALIE EXPORT (born 1940) across a number of different media, including performance and video as well as film and television. His work often focuses on the intellectual history of gender and sexuality and its intersections with psychoanalysis, media theory, aesthetics, and pedagogy.
