Sabrina Tarasoff is a Finnish writer and critic based in Paris. She is a contributing editor at Mousse Magazine and writes regularly for Artforum, Flash Art, and X-TRA Contemporary Art Quarterly. Her writing dwells on the mysterious movement between popular culture, poetry, and contemporary art, with a particularly keen eye on the nebulous “poet gang” that formed around the Wednesday Night Poetry series at Beyond Baroque Literary Art Center during the period from 1976 to 1986. Her work is currently featured at the Huntington Library as a part of the biennial, Made in LA 2020: a version, with the art installation-cum-home haunt, “Beyond Baroque: A Haunted House.” She also runs the Summer Room, an annual art writing residency at Treignac Projet in Treignac, France.
