    Personal profile

    Artistic and research interests

    MA Anna Jensen (1978)  is a curator, researcher, artist and writer currently working as a Doctoral researcher in Aalto University. Her dissertation Encyclopedia of In-Betweenness. An Exploration of a Collective Artistic Research Practice analyzes over 20 projects realized during the past 10 years and presents art as a socially prominent phenomenon that is always in a state of becoming. It suggests that art is on the front line perceiving new emerging ideas and ideologies while it also impacts and creates them. The thesis has two main research questions. It explores how art can be a way to approach the unknown, and how it can be a tool for societal research and change.

    Jensen is part of Porin kulttuurisäätö artist-curator collective whose work aims to combine art and research and explore and reconstruct existing structures of the art world and in our society. Together with Eliisa Suvanto they have also created the Space Invaders concept, that takes over empty and abandoned spaces, creates short duration multidisciplinary projects and thereby takes part in the conversation about public space and existing power relations. 

    Jensen's practice is often collective, site-specific and process-led. It combines art, activism and politics to theoretical questions of uncanny, becoming, interdependency and unknown.
