A previous solo exhibition and catalog, Katherine Behar: E-Waste , premiered at the University of Kentucky in 2014 and traveled to Boston Cyberarts Gallery. Since 2005 she has collaborated with Marianne M. Kim in the performance art duo Disorientalism, which studies how technologized work, junk culture, and consumerism mediate race and gender.

She is the editor of ObjectOriented Feminism, forthcoming in 2016 from University of Minnesota Press.
