Nora  Heidorn


I am a curator, researcher, and lecturer. My practice is led by rigorous interdisciplinary research in the intersecting fields of gender, race, health and care. I am is undertaking an LAHP-funded PhD at the Royal College of Art, London in collaboration with Birth Rites Collection.

My long-term curatorial research project Sick and Desiring took the form of an exhibition, artist publication and a series of events for the biennial Bergen Assembly 2019 in Norway. I have curated exhibitions, workshops and screenings, and spoken at institutions, universities and project spaces in Berlin, London, Turin, Oslo, Helsinki and Bergen. I publish essays and articles, including in CARELESS (Ma Bibliothèque) and Prova 6 (Royal College of Art) in 2021.

Alongside my independent practice, I have been working as an Associate Lecturer on BA Culture, Criticism and Curation at University of the Arts London since 2018, where I have developed a course on Care and Curating together with Andy Marsh. I have previously worked as Curator and Project Coordinator in the Department of Art at Goldsmiths College, and as Associate Director at the commercial gallery The Approach in East London.
