Paper at “ACT.MOVE.PERFORM” conference in Dresden on 08 October

I have been invited to present a research paper at the “ACT.MOVE.PERFORM.” conference at the University of Technology Dresden (TU Dresden / Institute of Art and Music, Department of Art Education) on Sunday 08 October 2017. My presentation is entitled How to address politics of the sensible in participatory performance practice? ‘Sensory fields’, ‘experience fields’ and ‘body techniques’ as materialist-performative analytical tools and it builds on my previous article in Nordic Theatre Studies (2015). I look forward to an interesting day with fellow researchers and artists!

My first semester as a teacher at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna

My first semester as a University Assistant (equivalent to “Lecturer” in many other countries) at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna has come to an end — I took care of two exhibitions (display&management), taught my first art course, took part in a prize jury, and successfully mentored students about grant applications and portfolio design.

Now I will have some time for own project planning – within the next years, there will be a lot going on on many fronts!

I wish all of you blog readers a relaxed and warm summer!

YLE radio interview about my life as a Finnish-Austrian artist in Vienna

One of the main Finnish radio stations YLE PUHE interviewed me about my life as an artist and researcher living in Vienna and Helsinki, and about the differences between the two cities and countries (sorry, in Finnish only). The interview series is titled “Maailmankansalaisia” that roughly translates as “Cosmopolitans”. You can listen to the interview here. On the website, you also have access to our previous radio interview about R.I.P. SERVICES at YLE PUHE in August 2016, titled “Koska hengityskoneet sammutetaan?” (“When should we switch off the respiration machine?”).

The documentary can be viewed online a few days only (click here).
