KT Hawbaker

Originally from rural Iowa, KT completed their undergrad degrees in Gender Studies and Nonfiction Writing at the University of Iowa, stuffing themselves on comics, food politics, and abortion narratives. In 2015, they came to Chicago to study New Arts Journalism (MA 2017) at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, where they developed podcasts, zines, video art, and a freakish love for visual art criticism. While they do their 9-5 at a nonprofit, KT also writes for spots like Artforum and the Chicago Reader. They are on a first-name basis with the taco place around the corner; they are probably binge-watching British crime dramas with their husband Dominic.
