Kimberly Bradley has been a culture journalist and editor since the 1990s. When she writes, it’s often – but not always – about art or the art world. When she edits, it can be big-picture (entire publications from concept to completion) or niggling (line- or copyediting art and architecture catalogues). Born in a California desert town and raised in northern Minnesota, she graduated from Middlebury College in 1990. After several years in Hamburg and a decade in New York, she moved to Berlin in the early 2000s and now lives and works in both Berlin and Vienna.
Bradley’s work has appeared in publications including AD, Art Agenda, artnet.com, artnet.de, ArtReview, BBC Culture, Conde Nast Traveller, Fodor’s Germany, Frame, Frieze d/e, GEO Saison, The International Herald Tribune, Mark, Metropolis, The New York Times, Spiegel Online, Sueddeutsche Zeitung Magazin, The Sunday Times, German Vogue, WSJ. Magazine, Zitty and many others; she has also worked in documentary production for Spiegel TV and independent documentaries. In 2001 she was an Arthur F. Burns fellow at the Sueddeutsche Zeitung Magazin in Munich.
Bradley is Vienna correspondent for Monocle magazine and reports for M24, Monocle’s web radio station. She currently teaches courses on contemporary art practices at NYU Berlin.
She finds it a bit silly to write about herself in the third person.
