Christa Dee

Christa Dee is a freelance writer, researcher and emerging curator based in Johannesburg. Her focus is on arts practitioners and spaces in South Africa and is currently working towards expanding her network more intimately across the globe. With an Honours degree with distinction in Social Anthropology, her previous research revolved around Instagram and its uses for re-thinking urban imaginaries and mapping practices within Johannesburg. She is currently working towards her MA in Contemporary Curatorial Practice at the University of the Witwatersrand. Expanding on her interest in how city-ness is constructed, her MA research seeks to explore the curatorial practices of small arts organisations in Johannesburg to unpack their value and role in city-making. As a writer, Christa focuses on art, design, digital cultures, speculative futures, identity politics, urbanism, and the relationship between these categories.
