Natalya Antonova is a doctoral candidate in Comparative Gender Studies. Her major field of inquiry is critical cultural studies in art and craft praxis. Natalya’s research interests include Marxist-Feminist philosophies and epistemologies; political economy of art-craft labour; critical histories and theories of art-craft practices; political economy of capitalism; social semiotics and multimodal discourse analysis. In her doctoral research, Natalya explores how practitioners work in a conundrum between the market and non-market practices and values – that is, the production of cultural goods for the globalised art system vis-à-vis the (co)production of activist merchandise as means to achieve political and economic goals in situ.
