Jesse van Winden (Dutch, 1986) holds a research degree in Visual Arts, Media & Architecture (cum laude) from VU University Amsterdam. His dissertation ‘Destabilising Critique: Personae in between self and enactment’ (2014) offers a historically founded theoretical framework of persona and a method to analyse persona performance, and was received with high esteem. He is chief editor of Kunstlicht, a peer-reviewed journal for visual arts, visual culture, and architecture. He presented his research on persona at ‘Facing the Unknown: Anonymity in the History of Art’ (Case Western Reserve University/Cleveland Museum of Art, 2014) and ‘Otherness and Transgression in Celebrity & Fan Cultures’ (Cultural Transformations Research Group, Aarhus University, 2014). For Kunstlicht, Van Winden prepares a journal issue (working title: Persona) expected Summer 2015.
