Ayasha Guerin is an interdisciplinary artist, curator, and professor of Black Diaspora Studies. Her first book project explores intersecting histories of social activism and ecological change on New York City’s flood-prone landfill from the the early 17th to mid 19th centuries (European colonization of Manahatta to the U.S. abolition of slavery.) Her second research project is focused on transnational Black feminism and arts activism in Berlin, Germany, where she is engaged with collective projects, CCC (Curating through Conflict with Care) and Black Art Action Berlin.
