Area(s) of Research Interest: Ruslana Lichtzier is a doctoral student, curator, and critic. Born in Russia, raised in Israel, and residing today in the US, Lichtzier's practice originates from the non-place of migration, a condition that bestows an ethical commitment to states of statelessness. Broadly, Lichtzier focuses on the optic regimes of domination which yield various performances of the non-citizenship in the Middle East. Her work is animated by the scholarship of Michel Foucault, the Frankfurt School, Feminist New Materialisms, and Black Studies.
