About Sarah Tuck

Dr Sarah Tuck is Head of Unit, Konsthantverk och Fri Konst/Craft and Fine Art at HDK-Valand

Sarah Tuck’s principal research interests lie in the relationship between photography, history, politics and cultural memory. Recently her work has explored the uses of drone technologies in surveillance, war and protest, supported by a collaborative initiative of the Hasselblad Center and Valand Academy, in partnership with Nicosia Municipal Arts Centre, Nicosia, Cyprus and the Zahoor Ul Akhlaq Gallery in Lahore, Pakistan.

In 2015 she published After the Agreement - Contemporary Photography in Northern Ireland a curated research project funded by the Arts & Humanities Research Council UK, which considers the affective meanings of photographs in the socio-political context of 'post-conflict' in Northern Ireland.

Her work has traversed a wide range of situated practice, including community development, post conflict processes and institutional networks where questions of agency, knowledge production and representation have always been central.
