Constanza Salazar

Overview

Constanza Salazar's research focuses on expanding the traditional boundaries of the discipline of art history by incorporating new interdisciplinary theoretical paradigms that explore the intimate relationship between new media art, critical theory, and society. Her current work includes renegotiating the concepts of identity, embodiment, and agency within a networked-society to ultimately uncover new ways of conceptualizing "the body" and new theories of otherness that suggest a shift towards thinking about a post-human ontology. Salazar completed her schooling in Canada. She holds a BA in Fine Arts from the University of Waterloo, and completed her M.A. in Art History at the University of Guelph. Salazar has presented papers internationally which examine the theories of new materialism, speculative realism, and new ontology within contemporary art and critical theory.
