Biography

Timotheus Vermeulen is associate professor in media, culture and society and coordinator of the PHD programme in Media and Communication. His research interests include cultural theory, aesthetics, and the close textual analysis of film, television and contemporary art. 

Vermeulen is the author of the monograph Scenes from the Suburbs (EUP, 2014) and joint editor with Martin Dines of New Suburban Stories (Bloomsbury, 2013). Together with Alison Gibbons and Robin van den Akker he further edited Metamodernism: Historicity, Affect and Depth after Postmodernism (Rowman & Littlefield, 2017).  'Notes on Metamodernism', an essay he co-wrote with van den Akker, was translated and published in book form in Germany as Anmerkungen zur Metamoderne (Textem, 2016). 

Vermeulen has published across academic and popular journals alike, writing for amongst others The Journal of Aesthetics and Culture, Screen, Film-Philosophy, Monu, The American Book Review, E-Flux Journal, Texte Zur Kunst, as well as various reference works, collections and catalogues. From 2009 to 2016, he helped maintain the now defunct arts and culture platform Notes on Metamodernism - which he co-founded. Vermeulen is a regular contributor to Frieze

Timotheus Vermeulen has served on numerous committees and juries for art prizes, most recently Coast Contemporary, the Nam Jun Paik Award and the Bonner Kunstpreis. He also advises and consults on exhibitions.
