Prof Ettinger will also facilitate a symposium, a seminar/master class on Ettingerian Studies and a post-graduate workshop during that week. Currently a Professor at the European Graduate School, in Saas-Fee, Switzerland, Bracha L. Ettinger’s ideas achieved recognition in cultural theory, psychoanalysis and French feminism after the publication of “Matrix and Metramorphosis” (1992), fragments from her notebooks (Moma, Oxford, 1993) and The Matrixial Gaze (1995). Over the last two decades her work has been influential in art history, film studies (including feminist film theory), Aesthetics, and Gender Studies.

Prof Ettinger’s artwork has exhibited widely including at the Pompidou Centre, MOMA, the Freud Museum, and her cutting edge theory and work has attracted commentators and advocates such as Jean François Lyotard, Judith Butler, Emmanuel Levinas, Griselda Pollock and Nicholas Bourriard to name but a few.
