Margot Bouman is Assistant Professor of Visual Culture at Parsons. She is at work on two book projects: “Between the Revolutions: Televison’s Avant-Garde; The Televisual and the Avant-Garde” and Cut, Shift, Paste: Sampling and the Site-Specific in Contemporary Art. The former is a historical examination of the unintended consequences of the avant-garde’s incursions into television in the 1970s and the 1980s. The latter takes as its subject contemporary, or late 1990s-present works of art that live at the intersection of sampling and site-specificity; it is under contract with I.B.Tauris. With Alice Crary she is a founding co-director of the Graduate Certificate in Gender and Sexuality Studies at The New School. In 2015-16 she is serving as the interim director of Visual Studies at Eugene Lang College. She received her Ph.D. from the University of Rochester’s Graduate Program in Visual and Cultural Studies in 2009.
