Based in Eindhoven (the Netherlands), Steffie de Gaetano is a Dutch-Italian interdisciplinary researcher merging architecture, art and anthropology. Her condition of ‘in-betweenness’ predisposes an attunement to questions of identity and otherness, while she finds complicity in the divergent thought of unexpected realities. She aims at critically unbuilding the field of architecture by uncovering colonial entanglements and implications of the industry for nature. Her research is situated at the intersection between (interspecies) anthropology and artistic expression. After graduating in Architecture at the TU Eindhoven in 2016, she is currently enrolled in two postgraduate programs: Decolonizing Architecture Advanced Studies at Royal Institute of Art in Stockholm, and Cultural Anthropology and Development Studies at KU Leuven.
