Giulia Damiani is an artist, writer and researcher based in Amsterdam working with performance. Her research intersects body, place and feminist creative methods to arrive at ruptures in language and context. Heart Brake is Giulia's first full-scale performance production as writer, artist and performer (AFK stipendium award 2023-2024). She was the recipient of the 2020 Performing Arts prize (movin’up) awarded by the MIBACT Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities and Tourism (Italy) for her piece Emma B. is Not Dead, which was to be presented at Centro Cultural São Paulo (CCSP).

Committed to the sharing of knowledge and practices, Giulia has been teaching art theory and performative writing at institutions including KABK, Rietveld Academie, HKU, University of Amsterdam and Goldsmiths (UK).

She was the research fellow and collaborator for the Ritual and Display edition at If I Can’t Dance, I Don’t Want to Be Part of Your Revolution, Amsterdam (2019–22), and in 2020 she curated From the Volcano to the Sea: The Feminist Group Le Nemesiache in 1970s-1980s Naples at Rongwrong, Amsterdam (Artforum; Metropolis; De Witte Raaf). In 2022 she curated the same show Part II at Chelsea Space in London (Art Monthly, Interview for Dazed).

Her edited book for If I Can’t Dance Ritual and Display came out in 2022. In 2022 she received her performance-based PhD in the Art Department at Goldsmiths, University of London (AHRC scholarship) with the title Porous Place, Eruptive Bodies: The Feminist Group Le Nemesiache in 1970s and 1980s Naples.
