Kyveli completed her undergraduate studies in the Department of Theory and History of Art in the Athens School of Fine Arts, Greece. Subsequently she received her MA from the History of Art Department, University of York, where she continued with her doctoral studies. Her PhD thesis, supervised by Dr James Boaden and Prof. Michael White, examines the politics and ethics of spectatorship of atrocity images in contemporary art. Her main focus addresses issues of visibility and invisibility in the same context. Her broader research interests cover the ethics of photography/photojournalism, contemporary art and issues of spectatorship, artistic ‘genealogies’ in art history, and arts and politics in general. She has worked in several research projects held by Greek universities and she has collaborated with contemporary artists in exhibitions.
