Research Associate, Indigenous Art, Agnes Etherington Art Centre
Sebastian De Line is a Research Associate, Indigenous Art at the Agnes Etherington Art Centre. He holds a B.F.A. in Autonomous Fine Art from the Gerrit Rietveld Academy and an M.A. in Art Praxis from the Dutch Art Institute. At present, he is a PhD Candidate in Cultural Studies and Teaching Fellow at Queen’s University. His dissertation “Postmortem Economies in Art: The Necropolitics of Value in Indigenized & Racialized Production” investigates the manufacturing of economies which instill objecthood into kin through museum collections produced by systems of colonial property production that generate value through a necropolitical capitalization upon states of unliving. His artistic practice primarily involves the presence and absence of agency or voice in embodied spaces.
