Biography

Noemi Yoko Molitor, M. A., is a visual artist, researcher and journalist. She studied Gender Studies and European Ethnology at Humboldt University Berlin and Cornell University. Her dissertation project at WGSS, “Chrononauts in Chromotopia: Queer Art movements through space, time and matter”, connects the fields of visual arts and queer theory, while interweaving academic research and artistic research practice. Considering the works of painters Katrin Plavčak, Julie Mehretu and Katharina Grosse, the project explores the autonomy of paint-color, queer migrations through time and space and the sexuality of painting.

Molitor is a member of Emory’s Visual Scholarship Initiative. Her essays on lesbian and queer film have appeared in Sissy and other magazines. In 2015, she worked as a research assistant for the exhibition Homosexualität_en / Homosexuality_ies at the German Historical Museum and the Gay Museum*, Berlin. Group exhibitions and screenings include Queer: Post-sexual – The Box Re-examined, 15th FRINGE!
