Yvonne Hardt is professor for dance studies and choreography at the University of Music and Dance Cologne, Germany. After receiving her doctorate with a thesis on “Political Bodies” she was Assistant Professor at the University of California, Berkeley. In her research she is interested in developing dance studies on methodological grounds, focusing on the relationship between praxis and theory, especially on performative elements of »doing history«. She also specializes in gender- and pedagogical theories. Her newest research investigates dance techniques and cultural education. More so, she worked as a dancer and choreographer; and in this work has increasingly questioned the borders between dance, performance and science.
Yvonne programmed the Symposium (re)thinking modes of artistic learning and offers within this frame a lecture on Feedback and Artistic Learning as Collective Process. Furthermore she offers the open doctoral colloquium to the ZZT.
