AHRC-funded Postdoctoral Researcher 2008-2011 Verina Gfader is postdoctoral researcher whose interest is in the criticality of emerging practices, and the ethics and economies of art, with a particular focus on non-linearity, concepts of the minor and articulations of democratic, active work. After studies in Visual Arts and Photography, she completed a practice-based Ph.D. in Fine Arts at Central Saint Martins College, London (titled Doubling in a Practice of Animation Doubling in a Practice of Animation).

In her media art practice Verina sometimes uses her pseudonym: Sissu Tarka. She works with animation, temporary architectural constructions, and drawing/text, and has exhibited at the ICA digital studio, London, where she also organised a series of talks with Mark Nash, Elena Cologni and Melanie Jackson. Verina�s curatorial practice includes her collaboration on exhibition projects with the Galerie im Taxispalais, Innsbruck. There she co-curated shows including Arbeit*/work (which toured to the Lewis Glucksman Gallery, Cork, and the Ormeau Baths Gallery, Belfast and included a symposium and publication). Contributors to this project included artists Carey Young, Moira Zoitl, and Adrian Paci, and theoreticians Ljubomir Bratic, Marion von Osten, Saskia Sassen among others. Verina has been invited to present work at conferences (Engaging the im-/possible at Central Saint Martins College, London; Theorising Creativity at Watershed Bristol), and her research on animation will be published in 2011. She is now a researcher at University of Huddersfield.
