Fields of interest
- Art Theory
- Cultural Musicology
My research focuses on art theories and practices as found in diverse cultural settings and historical periods. From the methodological point of view, I tend to align my work with the principles of phenomenology and artistic research. Relying on the notion of experience as the level of description, most of my work is built around case studies that allow for testing and/or illustrating ways of thinking about the arts in the widest sense of the term - including music, theatre, cinema and the visual arts.
