Editor Joanne Molina is a writer, researcher and adjunct professor.
As EIC of CO my task has been to research, chronicle and archive design and decorative arts exhibitions from around the world. This has given me an exceptional understanding design not only in terms of the commercial market(s), but specific knowledge regarding how musuems, over time, have curated and historicized "design" and "subjects of design"- in all of their manifestations. In addition to this educational service, I'm interested in exploring how philosophy, aesthetic theory and design/art criticism offer ways of thinking about the production and function of objects in musuem exhibitions and public spaces.
I did my graduate work in continental philosophy (my thesis was a post-structuralist analysis of the history of Taste using vocabularies from aesthetics, psychoanalysis, literary criticism and, film theory) and taught at DePaul University. For two decades I have also worked as an editor and writer. As a senior editor at two international consumer publications I was asked to select, recruit and hire writers. As Senior Arts + Culture Editor at Interiors magazine, I not only selected and hired freelance writers, but I worked with internationally renown artists, designers, fashion designers, chefs to create personal essays about travel, cuisine, and the arts. I am a former co-editor with Mark Wallace of the language and post-language poetry journal, SITUATION and edited the chapbook series, Propjet.
