Heath Schultz

Assistant Professor, Foundations

MFA, University of Iowa, Iowa City, IA, 2013
Heath Schultz joined the faculty at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga in 2017. Prior to joining UTC, he taught at The University of Texas at Austin and Texas State University. His writing has been published in the Journal of Artistic Research, Parallax, and the Journal of Aesthetics and Protest, in addition to various DIY publications. His work has been shown at the New Zealand Film Archive, Auckland, New Zealand; Visual Arts Center, Austin; Experimental Response Cinema, Austin; and Plains Art Museum, Fargo, ND, to name a few.
Working in the intersections of critical theory and radical politics, my work explores questions of institutional critique, activism, contemporary politics, and the political efficacy of art. It is most common that my individual and collaborative projects are multi-layered and combine elements from various disciplines. I describe this practice as extradisciplinary—suggesting an overflow of the practical and discursive borders of the academic and art worlds. Currently, my work focuses on a study of whiteness as a structural position of violence, with a particular interest in how this violence is evidenced in a visual culture of a “post-racial” society.
