Mieke Bal

Mieke Bal is a cultural theorist, critic, video artist and curator. She writes in an interdisciplinary perspective on cultural analysis, literature and art, focusing on gender, migratory culture, the critique of capitalism, and political art. She uses films as a different, more in-depth and more contemporary mode of cultural analysis than books and journals only. Bal is the author of 45 books and is currently publishing Image-Thinking (2022), in which she develops ideas about how to integrate academic and artistic thinking.
