Clémentine Deliss
27 November – 1 December 2006

Clémentine Deliss was invited to Budapest as a participant of the project Models for a fictional Academy curated by Eszter Lázár.

Clémentine Deliss was born in 1960 in London. She studied art in Vienna, completed a Ph.D at the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS, University of London) in 1988. In 1991, anticipating questions of global art criticism and contemporary art from Africa, Deliss organised and moderated a seminar series at SOAS. Deliss founded Metronome in 1996. Whilst researching and producing Metronome, she has held guest professorships at the Städelschule in Frankfurt, and the Academy of Fine Arts in Oslo. She has also conducted research with the support of art academies in Vienna, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Bordeaux, Bergen, Copenhagen, Malmö, Stockholm, and London. Through this interaction with art colleges in Europe, Deliss has now developed a major research initiative called Future Academy.
