Despina radically re-thinks performance art as ‘Spatium Monstrorum’: ‘surface’ occupied only by intensities, locus of parrhēsia, stage of trauma, event of Beauty and philosophy-as-embodied practice.

Despina was born in Arcadia, Greece. She is the Academic Leader of the RCA Contemporary Art Summer School and of the ‘Rethinking Contemporary Performance Art’ Masterclass. She has been leading MA Crits, Tutorials and School Groups at the RCA since 2016.

Despina is a SoAH PhD practice-led researcher in Fine Art, supervised by Professor Johnny Golding, and supported by the Onassis Foundation.

She holds a Master in Fine Arts, a Master in Visual Arts (Costume Design, Antwerp Royal Academy of Fine Art), a MSc & a Diploma (Hons) in Architecture, all of the above awarded with the highest distinction (summa cum laude).
