Ilya Malafei (I.)

I am a Teacher at University College Maastricht and a research assistant in an ERC-funded research project Conspiratorial Memory (the University of Amsterdam). I received my BA in Liberal Arts and Sciences from University College Maastricht in 2019. I completed a research MA in Cultural Analysis at the University of Amsterdam in 2022, where I wrote a thesis on the visual politics of the 2020 protests in Belarus. My main research interests include the politics of cultural memory, new materialisms, protest art and critical curatorial practices in the museum.
