Sher Doruff has been working in the visual and performance-based collaborative arts in a variety of capacities since the 1970’s. She studied Fine Arts, migrating to music performance/composition while living in Chicago and New York. In the late 80’s-00’s this practice incorporated digital technologies in Live Art performance contexts.
Based in Amsterdam since the mid-90's, she completed a PhD in 2006 from UAL/CSM. Entangling aesthetic/philosophical gestures and a longtime interest in radical educational pedagogies, her work has been situated in the expanded field of artistic research practice for the past ten years as a researcher, tutor, mentor and supervisor. Her research practice currently explores fabulation and fictive approaches to writing in and through artistic research.
She currently supervises 3rd cycle/PhD artist researchers at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy of Art and Design and the DAS Graduate School (Amsterdam University of the Arts) and DAS Choreography. She is a member of several editorial boards including the Journal of Artistic Research.
