Dr. Lisa Streitfeld (European Graduate School, 2016) is a cultural writer, independent curator and new media artist. As a member of the International Association of Art Critics, she delivered her paper “The Heisenberg Principle in Contemporary Art” to the 2009 AICA Congress in Dublin.
For a decade, she was a regular critic for newspapers in the New York metropolitan area, interpreting a new grassroots movement in over 300 reviews and articles, which she then transmitted to the international avant-garde through curation and essays. As a consultant on the forefront of new technology intersecting with business in new media, she has lectured extensively on the subject of metaphysics and art.
Her writing has appeared in several catalogs and anthologies, including: Holly Crawford’s Artistic Bedfellows (University Press of America, 2008) and Conversations on Sculpture (ISC Press, 2007). ArtUS will publish Shamanism in Contemporary Art this fall. She appears in Richard Move’s film, Bloodwork: The Story of Ana Mendieta (2009) and in Bill Page’s Andres Serrano – America (2003), a subject in her recently released memoir, Kundalini’s Daughter: Critical Trilogy, Vol. I. (http://www.criticaltrilogy.com)
Her innovations in expression occur at the intersection of new technology with business, metaphysics and multimedia art. In the 1970s, she was a tour guide/lecturer at the California Museum of Science and Industry, developing and delivering talks on the Voyager space program. In the 1980s, she worked as a full time astrologer/psychic at the first psychic hotline, Aquarian Age 2000, while analyzing scripts for Triad Artists during the rise of independent film. In the 1990s, she was a writer/analyst for Internet.com, the primary internet hub dedicated to new web technology. In 2005, she invented the blogel, a new multimedia form of personal/universal expression.
Dr. Streitfeld has been a practitioner of alchemy and hermeticism for over three decades. She was trained by Native American shamans and studied with the great metaphysical teachers of the late 20th century. In 2006, she was a recipient of the UUWF Margaret Fuller Award to develop her theory of the hieros gamos into a four volume book, as well as a visual language through a trilogy of multimedia exhibitions (2006-2010) in New York City and Cambridge: Icons of the 21xt Century; Black Madonna; and Woman in the 21st Century: Margaret Fuller and the Sacred Marriage.
In 2007, she invented the blogel with her five-chapter storefront gallery installation THE ALCHEMY OF LOVE IN FUVE ELEMENTS and subsequently pioneered the real time integration of new media with gallery curation through BLACK MADONNA and WOMAN IN THE 21st CENTURY.
She interpreted magic and the media through blogels, from www.criticaltrilogy.com in 2009 tracking her evolving consciousness following the release of her memoir, Kundalini’s Daughter: Critical Trilogy, Vol. 1 to the 2020 launch of drlisastreitfeld.com which proposes a quantum method of manifesting predictions based on her Science of Magic methodologies.
The trilogy personalizes her decade long journey as a reporter/critic chronicling a grassroots 21st century movement in over 300 reviews and articles for magazines and newspapers, including; Hartford Courant, Art New England, NY Arts, The New York Times and The Stamford Advocate/Greenwich Time, where she was the weekly arts reviewer (2000-2005). A member of the U.S. chapter of the International Association of Art Critics (AICA) from 2000-2020, she contributed her interpretations of a new cycle of modernism to several publications, catalogs and anthologies.
In 2010, Dr. Streitfeld embarked on a global project, Woman in the 21st Century, inspired by the life and writing of Margaret Fuller (1810-1850), author of Woman in the Nineteenth Century. Following her global trek in her R/Evolution Series as critic for Huffington Post Arts (2010-2017), her project on the emergence of a new feminine archetype resulted in the narrative nonfiction trilogy: Holy Grail: Holy Bride, including her doctoral dissertation for European Graduate School introducing astrology as hermeneutics into continental philosophy.
Dr. Streitfeld’s GESAMTKUNSTWERK consists of 12 blogs integrated into her central website launched in the summer of 2020.
