José Segebre, 2024

A scholar and curator, José B. Segebre (any pronouns) received a PhD in Art (Aesthetics/Philosophy) from Hochschule für Gestaltung Offenbach (DE). Titled Aesthetics of Waiting: Queer, Feminist and Decolonial Perspectives, the project explores notions of unfreedom in contemporary art: waiting becomes a metaphor to describe how power temporizes and how aesthetic experience modulates hopes and expectations. José’s essays circulate in exhibition catalogues and academic journals, while also writing fiction in Spanish and enjoying collaborations. With François Pisapia they host Full Moon Screenings (2019–), a travelling series of experimental events waxing and waning around food and moving images. José has lectured and organized workshops in universities, museums and artist-run spaces in Europe and México, currently teaching art theory at New York University in Berlin and co-teaching with Tomke Braun at Kunsthochschule Kassel.
