Welcome, I’m Eliza Steinbock, a scholar, educator and cultural critic based in The Netherlands. My work is fueled by a commitment to show the interconnections between cultural production and social reality.

On this home page you can quickly view my work or discuss a speaking engagement with me. Nose around the site and learn about my NWO funded Veni research project called Vital Art (2014-2018), check out my new book Shimmering Images (Duke, 2019), or the most recent news. I hope that you find something here to pique your critical curiosity for bodies and art too.
