tara is an artist researcher teacher who explores the praxic entanglements of making and learning underpinned with new materialist theories and using embodied and material practice research methods and methodologies.
tara’s practices, artistic, pedagogic, and research examine the importance of ‘where’ to who we are and how we are and also how the presence and absence of matter teaches us. tara conceives pedagogy as an open, continuously made and remade praxis that is embodied, placed, material, generative, emancipatory and enables social and educational change.
bringing together creative philosophy with practice and theory tara advances new ways of understanding the cultural politics of making, objects and events and how materials, processes, pedagogies and theory can enable the questioning and disruption of many forms of dominance that exist in our society.
tara is the Academic Director of International Development and Academic Partnerships (IDAP) and Head of the PhD Art Practice and Learning at Goldsmiths University of London.
