Hannah A. Matangos is a dual-title Ph.D. candidate in German Literature & Culture and Visual Studies. Her research interests fall at the intersection of art and technology in the German context and beyond. Her dissertation, entitled “Technologies of Illumination the 20th- and 21st-Century Avant-gardes,” surveys the aesthetic, artistic, and socio-political connections between the Bauhaus, Group ZERO, Austrian avant-garde filmmakers, and contemporary artists while grappling with questions of medium, modernity, and technological experience.
During the academic year, Hannah teaches undergraduate courses in German and Comparative Literature. Throughout 2020-2021, she created and maintained the digital companion for Field Language: The Painting and Poetry of Warren and Jane Rohrer at the Palmer Museum of Art. Recently, she helped produce the Liberal Arts Collective’s “Unraveling the Anthropocene: Race, Environment, and Pandemic” podcast (2020-2021) and the (Co)Figurations series (2021-2022). You can also find her at 3 Dots Downtown helping with exhibitions, events, and design.
