Daniela Hermosilla (Santiago de Chile, 1983) graduated in Visual Arts at Finis Terrae University (2007), gained a diploma in Theory of Visual Arts at Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile University (2008) and an M.A in Advanced Studies in Art History at the University of Barcelona(2011).
She is currently working on her Ph.D research on strategies for visual representation of memory in contemporary art, addressing the artist’s book as case of study. The thesis, directed by Professor Anna Maria Guasch F., proposes the artist’s book as a creative process and container of memory, questioning the coherence between collective memory in a global context and its influence on the contemporary artistic memory-practice. She is an associated researcher in Art Globalization Interculturality (AGI) and Global Art Archives (GAA) research groups at the University of Barcelona. In addition to her doctoral work, she is involved in different artistic, editorial and curatorial projects.
