Dr Bill Balaskas


I am an artist, theorist and educator, working across different media and dissemination platforms. I joined Kingston University in May 2019 as Associate Professor and Director of Research, Business and Innovation at the School of Art and Architecture.

My works have been widely exhibited internationally, in more than 130 museums, galleries, festivals and public spaces. I have received awards from the European Investment Bank Institute; Comité International d'Histoire de l'Art; European Cultural Foundation; Open Society Institute; and the Association for Art History, amongst others.

In parallel with my artistic practice, I am an editor for the Leonardo Electronic Almanac (The MIT Press), while my writings have also appeared in edited books and in publications such as the Journal of Visual Culture, Third Text and Revista Arta.

Furthermore, I am an advisor to Arts Council England in the field of collaborative research between Higher Education and the cultural sector (MHECF).
