Deepti Mulgund, Ph.D.

Postdoctoral Fellow, Project "Art Histories and Aesthetic Practices"

Deepti Mulgund obtained her doctoral degree in April 2019 from the School of Arts and Aesthetics, Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi, India. Her thesis, The Social Life of Art: Tracing the Development of Art Publics in Colonial Bombay 1850-1930s focused on practices, processes, sites and platforms that created a culture of art-viewing in the colonial port city of Bombay and led to the development of art publics. She is currently working towards expanding her doctoral thesis into a monograph. In 2015, she was a DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service) Fellow, affiliated to the Institut für Kunst und Bildgeschichte (IKB) at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. She has worked in a curatorial capacity at the Devi Art Foundation, a not-for-profit foundation that was engaged with contemporary art and has researched institutional history at the Bhau Daji Lad Mumbai City Museum (formerly the Victoria and Albert Museum of Bombay).
