Curriculum Vitae

Jacopo Galimberti is an art historian. He studied at the Statale di Milano, Paris I-La Sorbonne and at the Courtauld Institute of Art, from which he received his PhD. In 2014 he obtained a grant from the Gerda Henkel Stiftung in order to pursue his research on the Spur group in archives located in Berlin and Munich. In the following two years he taught Art History in France, at universities such as Parsons School of Design and Sciences Po. In 2017 he was awarded a British Academy Postdoctoral Fellowship. This gave him the opportunity to work in the Sociology Department of the University of Manchester, where he wrote his second major monograph, Images of Class. Operaismo, Autonomia and the Visual Arts. For the last two years he has been a post-doctoral fellow in the Architecture Department of the University of Bologna.
