(Portugal, 1983)

Ana Catarina Pinho is an interdisciplinary researcher working at the intersection of visual culture, documentary, and the archive. She earned her Ph.D. from the University of South Wales, UK, and is currently a researcher at the Instituto de História da Arte (IHA), Universidade Nova de Lisboa, and the Global Art Archive (GAA), University of Barcelona. Her academic work informs her artistic practice, particularly as she explores discursive frameworks in lens-based media and their connections to the politics of visuality and memory.

Alongside her academic and visual work, Pinho is the founder of ARCHIVO, an international network dedicated to photography and visual culture. Since 2012, she has directed its program, actively contributing to the dissemination of scholarly and artistic practice, while fostering dialogue and critical engagement within the field. Additionally, she serves the editorial board of Archivo Papers and Arte y Sociedad, and is the convener of the academic conference Reframing the Archive.
