Born in Hungary, Judit Bodor works internationally as a curator, educator and producer over the last twenty years. She has been teaching in UK higher education institutions since 2005 and held curatorial, research and producer positions in artist-led art organisations such as Artpool Art Research Centre (Budapest), East Street Arts (Leeds) and WAVEparticle (Glasgow) since 2000.

Her curatorial projects include museum and gallery exhibitions of contemporary artists’ archives, and new commissions of performance and site-specific art. Her specific area of research is the histories and practices of the post 1960s avantgarde and the possible curatorial approaches to these works’ legacy within and beyond collections environment.

Her recent projects include No such permanence, only becoming (Sokołowsko, Poland, 2019), The Happenstance (Palazzo Zenobio, 16th Architectural Biennale Venice, 2017-2018), Left Performance Histories (NGbK, Berlin 2018) and Silent Explosion, Ivor Davies and Destruction in Art (National Museum Wales, Cardiff, 2015-16). She co-founded Gordian Projects (with Emma Bolland and Tom Rodgers) in 2014 focusing on publishing small editions of work that use art and language as a space for exploration, operating at the intersection of artist’s book, art writing, literature, and archive.

Her own writings have been published by Palgrave Macmillan, Taylor & Francis, Occasional Papers and Brill’s Studies in Art & Materiality.
