Cindy Evans is a doctoral student at Florida State University. She received her BA with a double major in Interdisciplinary Humanities and German at Brigham Young University and MA in art history at FSU. Her research focuses on European, primarily German, politicized participatory and kinetic art practices, intersections of art and critical theory, historical materialism, labor and play theory, art and activism, and the rise of new media. Her dissertation focuses specifically on the Munich based art collective Die Effekt Gruppe in the New Tendencies network to highlight the growing politicization of artistic practices against the backdrop of neutralized West German Cold War historiography. She has also interned at the Würth Kunsthalle in Schwäbisch Hall, Germany, and The Salvador Dalí Museum St. Petersburg, Florida.
