Marianne Riphagen

Marianne Riphagen studied at the Department of Anthropology and Development Studies of the Radboud University Nijmegen, the Netherlands. In 2011 she completed her dissertation on the subject of contemporary photomedia created by Indigenous Australians entitled Indigenous Cosmopolitans: Up-and-Coming Artists and their Photomedia Works in Australian and International Visual Art Worlds. Focusing on the artistic photographs and video works of artists Christian Thompson, Dianne Jones, Darren Siwes and Brook Andrew, Marianne examines the ways in which these acquire meaning and value within institutional art worlds. At present, she is setting up a new research project to investigate transnational Indigenous collaborations within visual art worlds.
