Anette Baldauf is professor for methodology and epistemology and co-director of the artistic research program PhD in Practice at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna. At the New School University in New York she was trained as a sociologist with an emphasis on urban and cultural studies.

Her research revolves around questions on artistic research methodologies and ethics, particularly in transcultural research settings. Completed research projects include the WWTF project Spaces of Commoning.
