Current Research       Projects       About

Giulia Astesani is an artist, lecturer, and PhD candidate at Royal College of Art. She lives and work in London.


Through an expanded performative practice, her work engages with an active process of archiving queer lives while critically questioning contemporary representations of queerness. In her work she prioritises the use of feeling and emotions as valuable tools for research, proposing strategies of unknowing, un-doing and unbecoming in opposition to oppressive normative narratives of progress, success and happiness.


Her current research explores queer divergent potentiality and challenges heteronormative language structures through collaborative sonic performances.
