Liza Weber, Germany

Liza Weber is a writer first and foremost, whether that be in the guise of an art critic, art historian, editor or, indeed, dancer. Most recently, she has written for Tanzbüro Berlin, reviewing fortnightly performances for their online portal tanzschreiber. It was during her master’s degree in ‘Critical Writing in Art & Design’ at the Royal College of Art, however, that she became preoccupied with the relationship between writing and dance and founded a society called ‘A_CRitical Dance’. It was also during this time that she frequented The Place, as both a reviewer for ‘Resolution!’ and as an Audience Club Member. Liza also holds a PhD in art history from the Centre for German-Jewish Studies, University of Sussex, where she wrote a thesis on the founding ‘documenta’ exhibition of 1955 and its relationship to the Nazi’s “Degenerate Art” campaign.
