Hilde Van Gelder teaches contemporary art history at KU Leuven, where she is presently Chair of the Archaeology, Art History, and Musicology Research Unit in the Faculty of Arts. 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.
