Vita Zelenska is a researcher, curator, and artist working in the spheres of political anthropology, anthropology of art, and sound studies. Her research interests include political agency, subjectivity, and production of space (space-in-the-making). She graduated from the European University at Saint-Petersburg with a major in cultural anthropology (MA, “Rebetiko musical genre in Greece (self-presentation, authenticity, performance)”). She conducted several studies in collaboration with theatre actors and directors on Saint-Petersburg and with apartment galleries' curators (together with art historian and curator Marina Israilova). She spent a semester at the New School for Social Research (Global Dialogues Fellowship) working on the study of political meanings of sound. Her current project at the Leibniz ScienceCampus focuses on knowledge-making about what it “means” to be a refugee. The project applies asymmetric non-comparative research that will be conducted in Greece and the USA.
