Manion Kuhn

Manion Kuhn is an interdisciplinary artist and thinker. Her current performance work explores the performative presence of the body in public spaces. Manion has also researched, written, and spoken about the intersection of technology and daily life. Her academic interests include the performance of trauma and health, hygienic rituals, social media performances, the performance of everyday life, food and consumption, sound, and museum studies and public policy. 

Why PS @ NYU:

I chose Performance Studies because I was looking for an interdisciplinary undergraduate program that would allow me to continue exploring all of the things I was interested in. Performance Studies has provided me with a critical framework I can bring wherever my work goes.
