Cristina Bogdan (b. 1985) is a researcher working on the political, mythological, spiritual and cybernetic configurations of Eastern Europe. She has produced writing, short films and public programs exploring the philosophical implications of life in a liminal space.

She is the founder of the research & education space ODD, the main vehicle for the elaboration of propositions on the Romanian imaginary. Greatly connected to similar initiatives in Eastern Europe, ODD started collaborating with Asian collectives in 2017; in 2019, Cristina relocated to Assam, India.

In an attempt to build a critical vocabulary for art writing in Romania, she also founded the online version of Revista ARTA, currently the main contemporary art publication in the country. In 2017, Revista ARTA was one of the four founding members of East Art Mags, a network of art publications from Central and Eastern Europe.

Together with Mriganka Madhukaillya, Cristina founded the research and design studio Forest Cybernetics, in Guwahati, Assam, which engages in long-term interdisciplinary research and production work.
