Ana Catarina Pinho is a FCT research fellow at the European Centre for Documentary Research (eCDR), within the University of South Wales, in the UK. In her doctoral research she explores contemporary artistic appropriation of archival imagery and its relationship with the narratives and collective memory of historical events, confronting it with the re-signification of visual material as a point of departure for the construction of new discourses and knowledge production. She holds a degree in Fine Arts (ESAP, Porto, 2006) and completed a Master degree in Photography and Documentary Cinema (IPP, Porto, 2010), having collaborated as an invited assistant professor at the University of Coimbra and the Polytechnic Institute of Porto, both in Portugal. She is the founder director of Archivo Platform, since 2012, an independent photography and visual culture research platform, where she develops and coordinates a research network and several projects and events in collaboration with other cultural and academic entities. As an editor, she founded the magazine “Archivozine” [2012-2016] and is currently the editor-in-chief of “Archivo Papers Journal”, a peer-review open access journal on photography and visual culture. The platform was expanded with the opening of Archivo Press, a book publisher focused on visual arts and culture. She is a member of the research centres: European Centre for Documentary Research, University of South Wales; Global Art Archive, University of Barcelona; and Contemporary Art Studies, IHA-FCSH NOVA University of Lisboa. She has recently edited the book “Reframing the Archive” (2021) and curated the exhibition “The Empire of Fiction”, currently being displayed at MEIAC - Extremaduran and Latin American Museum of Contemporary Art, in Spain. In addition to her research and academic work, Pinho is a visual artist working across photography, moving image and installation. Her work combines documentary and fictional strategies, often examining the way reality is perceived in regard to its representation and meaning construction. She has been exhibited and published internationally and is currently an invited artist of the research project “Peace Videography”, developed at TAPRI - Tampere University of Finland, and funded by Kone Foundation.
