Emma Balkind is an AHRC PhD Candidate at Glasgow School of Art. Estovers, a public-facing research project, will engage with other artists to consider what are the basic similarities between different evocations of the Commons. Asking ‘If the concept of the Commons / the Common / of Commonality is entirely mutable or slippery then what is this ghost of an idea of Commonality that is retained in its reiteration?’ Balkind is also currently producing ‘Sick Sick Sick: The Books of Ornery Women’ a project on female authorship and radical subjectivity in partnership with Laura Edbrook and MAP magazine. Her writing has been commissioned for publication most recently by Galerija Galženica, Zagreb and YYZ Artists’ Outlet, Toronto.
Emma Balkind is based in Glasgow, Scotland.
