Ms Stephanie Dieckvoss

Senior Lecturer and Course Director MA Art Market & Appraisal (Professional Practice)


I have joined the Department of Creative and Cultural Industries in September 2017 as senior lecturer and course director for the Art Market and Appraisal (Professional Practice) MA. I am a German art historian living in London. I work as an academic, journalist and strategic arts management consultant. I also regularly teach at Central Saint Martins (CSM), UAL on art history, art markets and globalisation. At CSM, I was Stage 1 Leader on BA Culture, Criticism and Curation from 2013 to 2017. I also teach at Sotheby's Institute of Art Online Faculty and Christie's Education.

My research centres around contemporary art markets and I currently work on a larger project on the relationship between the artist and the market and the art market in Africa. She also researches aspects of cultural globalisation and the art school as institution. My latest publication is a co-authored issue of Kunstforum International "Kunst Lernen? Kunstakademien und Kunsthochschulen heute", Kunstforum vol 245, March 2017. I holds MAs in Art History from the University of Hamburg and the Courtauld Institute, London and an MBA (Public Services) from Warwick Business School, as well as a PgCert in Art and Design Education from UAL. I am a fellow of the Higher Education Authority and chair of Contemporary Markets, TIAMSA (The International Art Market Studies Association). I regularly write on the art market for the Handelsblatt, the Neue Zürcher Zeitung and Apollo, and run Kunstburo, a consultancy with partner Andrew Marsh. Before becoming an academic and writer, I had an extensive career in the international contemporary art world, working for galleries such as Karsten Greve, Cheim & Read and Gagosian, and running art fairs such as Frieze Art Fair, Art HK: Hong Kong International Art Fair, and Art13 and Art14 London. I also worked for non for profit organisations such as the Serpentine Gallery and the Contemporary Art Society. I have an extensive practical as well as theoretical understanding of British and international art markets and have a keen interest in the art scenes of emerging markets.
