Dr Claire M. Holdsworth is an archivist and writer based in London. As an independent historian / researcher specialising in British artists’ moving image (1960s to late 1980s), her work explores sound and considers the voice by investigating narration, oral history, archives and social collectives. Curatorial projects include exhibitions and events for Alpha-ville Festival and the Whitechapel Gallery cinema. Between 2016 and 2018 she was an Early Career Research Fellow at Kingston School of Art (Kingston University London) and prior to that completed an AHRC funded PhD at Central Saint Martins (UAL).

Currently writing a monograph entitled ‘Locating the voice’, in 2019 presentations include the annual conference of the Association for Art History, the European Network of Cinema and Media Studies (NECS), and RE:SOUND. She has written for academic journals and titles such as Other Cinemas: Politics, Culture and Experimental Film in the 1970s (eds. Sue Clayton and Laura Mulvey, May 2017) on which she also worked as an Editorial Assistant, the Moving Image Review and Art Journal (Intellect, 2017), Vertigo magazine and most recently the Canadian journal INTERMÉDIALITÉS: History and Theory of the Arts (Spring, 2018).
