I’m a founding member of the Museum of Impossible Forms – an anti-racist, queer feminist cultural centre – located in Kontula, Helsinki. In 2018, I was appointed its co-Artistic Director along with Marianne Savallampi, for a period of two years, from 2019-2020.

Together, we have been a team "responsible for managing M{if}’s multilingual library and its ongoing archive, as well as the overall programming – including curating workshops and events, making coffee, maintaining the space and its day-to-day functioning, liaising with invited artists and performers, offering technical and documentation support, as well as managing finances and accounts”.

In short, the co-Artistic Directorship is a position of work that cuts through multiple strata of infrastructural praxis, and as such, is a consolidated set of roles that normally (within an institutional setting) would be distributed through a hierarchical framework. Through multi-layered, recurrent work, we have aimed to create a space and ethos that facilitates the conditions for making significant interventions through cinema, performance, music, spoken word, visual arts, and activism based practices, discourses, and pedagogies.
