"The Shape of the Self”

Rachel Haidu is Associate Professor of Art History at the University of Rochester. Her first book, The Absence of Work: Marcel Broodthaers 1964-1976 (October Books, 2010) examines the functions of national identity, the public sphere, and “bad faith,” and her current book project is on resurgent notions of selfhood in contemporary art. Her criticism has appeared in Artforum, Texte zur Kunst, and October, and she has written essays on a wide range of artists, including James Coleman, Maria Hassabi, Sharon Hayes, Edward Krasiński, Ulrike Müller, Gerhard Richter, and Andrzej Wróbleswki.
