Dr Henry Bond

Senior lecturer


A photography theorist with an interest in Freudian psychoanalysis, I graduated from Goldsmiths with a BA (Hons) in Fine Art then Middlesex University with an MA in Psychoanalysis before obtaining a PhD at the University of Gloucestershire. After completing the Learning and Teaching in HE PgCert at Kingston University, I became a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.

I co-curated with Sarah Lucas the East Country Yard Show, influential in the YBA art scene and collaborated with Liam Gillick on our Documents Series.

My debut monograph on art and photography Lacan at the Scene was published by The MIT Press, Cambridge, Mass.

Photo-books include: The Cult of the Street (Emily Tsingou Gallery, 1998) and Point and Shoot (Hatje-Cantz, 2001). 

My work has been included in several historical surveys of art: Brilliant! (Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, 1995); How To Improve the World (Hayward Gallery, 2006), and Century City (Tate Modern, 2001).
