Theodor Barth

THEODOR BARTH (Dr. Philos. Social Anthropology) works as a professor of theory and writing at the Oslo National Academy of the Arts (KHiO). In the mid-1990s he was engaged in fieldwork in Sarajevo and Zagreb. At the academy he aims to explore the role of writing in artistic practice. He is developing an experience-based understanding of artistic research and practice as a field, in aspects that resemble what anthropologists understand as fieldwork. He studied at the Norwegian Foundation of Research in Science and Technology (SINTEF) and the University of Oslo, and is currently a member of the European Association of Archaeologists.
