About / CV

Natasha Christia is an unaffiliated curator, writer and educator based in Barcelona. She is also a collection consultant and a dealer specialised in fine art photography and photobooks. She holds a BA in Archaeology and History of Art from the National Kapodistrian University of Athens, an MA in Modern Art and Film from the University of Essex, and a Postgraduate Diploma on Publishing from the University of Barcelona.

Her research focuses on the exploration and reinvention of dominant narratives through a novel reading of archival collections, the intersection of photography, film and the photobook, and the dialogue between 20th century avant-garde photography and contemporary forms of expression often labelled as post-photography. Her penchant for “excavating” the past owes much to her diverse multidisciplinary academic background in Art History, Film Studies and Publishing.

From 2005 until 2014 she was the art director of Kowasa gallery in Barcelona, where she curated more than seventy exhibitions and designed projects that dealt with fine art photography and the independent photobook market. As a member of the research group Arqueologia del Punt de Vista 2009-2012, she designed theoretical and audiovisual projects that involve the study and recovery of testimony, documents and technologies of the past.

Since 2008, she has been teaching in photography schools in Spain and abroad. She regularly contributes essays on photography criticism for international publications such as 1000 Words, and commissions for artists and exhibitions. She was the guest editor of OjodePez magazine 41: Self Calling and guest-editor at the Read or die Publishing Fair in Barcelona (November 2015), exploring the topic “The Book: on Endless Possibilities”.

Natasha Christia was the artistic director of the fourth edition of DocField Documentary Photography Festival, which was celebrated between May-July 2016. The Festival was launched under the theme “Europe: Lost in Translation” and included a series of 15 exhibitions. She has recently curated “Uncensored Books”, a photobook-based curatorial project (Belgrade Photomonth/April 2017, Minimum Studio/Palermo-June 2017), A”MORE: An Unfinished Trilogy by Valentina Abenavoli” (Void / Athens Photo Festival, June 2017), “My Own Unknown” by Dragana Jurisic (Centre Culturel Irlandais, November 2017), “Reversiones” (E.Folio.001 Festival, Centro de la Imagen, Mexico City, November 2017), “Travelogue Sammlung by Lukas Birk (Belgrade Photomonth, April 2018), “The Family of No Man” (co-curated with Brad Feuerhelm). Arles Cosmos 2018, and and “You Are What You Eat”, a group exhibition on food, identity politics and ideology for Krakow Photomonth 2019.
