Ana de Almeida is an artist and researcher from Lisbon, currently living and working in Vienna.
After studying Painting at the Faculty of Fine Arts at the University of Lisbon, she continued her studies in Vienna, completing a Master in Critical Studies at the Academy of Fine Arts with a scholarship from the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation. She is currently a Ph.D. candidate at the same institution, pursuing a doctoral thesis about the production of images and its ideological implications in the 1974—1989 inter-revolutionary space between the Carnation and the Velvet Revolutions. From 2017-2019 she is affiliated with the IFK - International Research Centre for Cultural Studies of the Linz University of Arts in Vienna as a Junior Fellow.
She is a member of the artists’ collective <dienstag abend>, a member and co-founder of the curatorial project Gudrun Ingenthron and of the Interndinner collective against precarization of work in the cultural field. Her artistic practice addresses memory processes and their different levels of responsibility in processes of subjectivization; conscious and subconscious narrative constructions that connect space and subject; and plurispatial and multilayered narratives in general.
