Cecilia Wee is working on her DPhil in Music and Philosophy at the University of Sussex, on the relationship between performance/live art and its documentation. With a background in contemporary classical music, her research interests include technologies of cultural reproduction in contemporary performing and visual arts, post-Kantian aesthetics, and cultural understandings of warfare and combat.
Cecilia is co-organiser of the monthly inter-art event series ‘Rational Rec’ in London’s East End, and has been a regular producer/presenter for London art radio station Resonance FM since 2002. Programmes include the weekly contemporary arts programme ‘New Art on Mondays’ (2003-6), panel discussions at Resonance FM’s Frieze Art Fair residency (2005, 2006) and the debate series ‘Salon or Seminar’, which visits London art venues putting a cultural take on the BBC programme Question Time (since 2006). Her work aims to question the sophistication of existing structures for debate on artistic production and aesthetics, within and beyond the realms of academia.
