Becca Voelcker

Land Cinema in the Neoliberal Age

Dr Becca Voelcker earned her PhD in the Department of Art, Film, and Visual Studies at Harvard University in 2021. Her dissertation, Land Cinema in the Neoliberal Age, studies a global corpus of films made by gardener-filmmakers and farmer-filmmakers in the 1970s and 80s that constitute contributions to Marxist and environmental thought. She is currently a Research Fellow at Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts London. Before Harvard, Becca studied at Goldsmiths, University of London, and the University of Cambridge. Between 2013-15 she was based in Tokyo, Japan, as a Daiwa Scholar. Her current research traces aspects of political economy through visual cultures, with a focus on architecture and film. She combines research with programming and podcasting projects, and writes for journals including Film Comment, Frieze, Art Asia Pacific, and Sight & Sound. website: email: beccavoelcker[at]
