Adrian started his working life in the Department of Fine Art at Portsmouth Polytechnic working with art students as well as history and cultural studies students and architects. He finished in Art Writing at Goldsmiths with an episode as professor of Fine Art at the University of Leeds and then of Visual Culture at Middlesex between these two points.

His web site and blog are at [eee.gai-savoir.net]. A collection of some thirty of his essays from BLOCK to the present day, edited and with an introduction by Steve Edwards will appear later this year with Brill, entitled ‘Communards and Other Histories’; while a collection of essays in dialogue with his work, ‘Intersubjective Encounters, Visible and invisible in the work of Adrian Rifkin’, edited by Dana Arnold, will soon appear with I B Tauris.
