John R. Blakinger is the 2018-2019 Terra Foundation Visiting Professor of American Art at the University of Oxford. He studies modern and contemporary art, with a focus on aesthetics and politics. He received his PhD in art history from Stanford University in 2016 and was a two-year predoctoral fellow at the Center for Advanced Study in the Visual Arts (CASVA) at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC, and a two-year postdoctoral fellow in the Society of Fellows in the Humanities at the University of Southern California. His book Gyorgy Kepes: Undreaming the Bauhaus is forthcoming from the MIT Press in June 2019; other writings have appeared in Tate Papers, CAA Reviews, Design Issues, and edited volumes.
