Hilde Van Gelder teaches contemporary art history at KU Leuven. In 2021, she published Ground Sea. Photography and the Right to Be Reborn with Leuven University Press. This two-volume book is the outcome of a decade-long research on how photography within contemporary visual art and culture can be an operative force for both re-legitimating and imagining fundamental rights. From October 1, 2022 until September 30, 2023 she is on sabbatical leave. During this time, she uses her Ground Sea website as a working platform for online art research.
