Ioana has been awarded with 2021 Fulbright Visiting Scholar Award. Her research ”Cracking the Art Matrix. Performing the marginal artistic persona on social media” will be conducted in New York and California. Ioana is affiliated with Stanford University - Center for Comparative Studies in Race & Ethnicity and Bard College - MA Program in Human Rights and the Arts. Her research looks at the ways artists identifying as marginal perform their persona on Instagram shaping new forms of artistness.
For the grant awarded by tranzit.org at Q21/MuseumsQuartier Vienna, Ioana will encounter Austrians that used to send aid to 90s transitioning Romania. This is assembled as a video material looking at manifestations of what has been coined to be “liberal guilt”.
