Katharina Weinstock is an art historian, writer and curator. Since 2019, she has been a research associate in the department of Art History and Media Philosophy at Karlsruhe University of Arts and Design (HfG). Tracing distinctions between 20th and 21st century strategies of object appropriation, her Ph.D project 'Post-Readymades' explored how art's unsettled/unsettling objects negotiate shifting realities.
In 2020 she initiated UMBAU. In 2023, she started to pursue her Post Doc project "Designing Habits" as part of the DFG Priority Program The Digital Image.
