Ruth Rosengarten draws, takes photographs and writes. Born in Israel, Ruth has lived in England since 2001.
She received degree in Fine Arts at the University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg, and Ph.D in History of Art at the Courtauld Institute, London. Studio practice for some years now has focussed on drawing and photography, while in her recent theoretical work, she has explored concerns with memory and the archive in contemporary art, especially (though not exclusively) in photographic works.
Ruth lived for twenty years in Lisbon, where alongside her studio practice, she was engaged with both art history and art criticism, teaching on various undergraduate and M.A. courses and writing for several weekly and monthly as well papers as well as academic publications. She has curated several exhibitions, the most recent of which was Between Memory and Archive (Entre Memória e Arquivo) at the Museu Colecçao Berardo, Lisbon, in 2013.
