Om Kajsa G Eriksson

Summary

When the future becomes increasingly uncertain education need to integrate both the known and the unknown. Art Education has a potential and an advantage in this area since it has a tradition of both practise and research concerning open ended and explorative knowledge processes. The aim of my current research is to develop and stimulate potential and innovation in Art & Art Education. My research interests are decentering of human perspective in experimental and radical art education, climate art, performative and relational art & technology in public space, and entanglement of art practice and feminist, posthuman and new materialism theories and methodologies.

Kajsa G. Eriksson is an Artist and Professor in Visual Art with specialization in Forms of Visual Art at the Art Teachers Program, HDK, Gothenburg University, Sweden. Eriksson holds a PhD in Design (2010). The dissertation “Concrete Fashion: Dress, Art, And Engagement in Public Space” is an example of artistic research that explores the border between design and contemporary art, in order to place situated bodily practices within larger field of exploration and ideology, and to discover new formats. Since 2012 she runs Vague Research Studios together with Dr. Lena Berglin, an art-based studio exploring the intersection of technology, art, everyday life and outdoor activities. Eriksson is since 2019 part of the Research-Committee iphiGenia (RCi) consists of 27 renowned international experts who will be looking for gender-sensitive design throughout the world, supporting the iphi Award by the international Gender Design Network/iGDN.

Visiting Fellow at Arizona State University, USA, Teaching the Topic course: "Experimental Art in Public Space" at School of Art (SOA) vid Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts (HIDA) during fall semester. Scholarship through STINT - The Swedish Foundation for International Cooperation in Research and Higher Education.
 

Research projects

REGN (RAIN) is a climate change art project which imagines life as if rain were never-ending. The project was initiated in 2011 by Kajsa G. Eriksson and artist, researcher and teacher Fredric Gunve. REGN/RAIN is experimental and integrates performance, performativity, writing, and object-making with the entanglement of physical and imaginative worlds in a material-storytelling. The method draws together the real and the speculative in order to make and mark the instability of both. Blurring the borders between fiction and reality also fosters the emergence of unexpected experiences and connectivity. Instability, both imaginative and felt, and the emergence of experiences, affects, and empathies are key to the transformative power of the methods of REGN/RAIN.

Vague Research Studio is an artistic research studio which was initiated together with PhD Lena TH Berglin, Associate Prof. (docent) in Design and Material Practices at the Swedish School of Textiles. The research studio is specializing in intra-action experiments and art/technology/culture/education as experiments. VRS art and research practice is socially engaged and emerges out of everyday life where collective methods, feministic and cross-disciplinary approaches are used in the fields of visual art, design, material technologies and pedagogy. VRS vaguing methodology is described as “performing explorations”, (exploring situations without dividing the knower from the known), and “vague technology” (enabling a fluid relation between people and technology) (Eriksson, 2010) (Berglin, 2008). 

Teaching

Eriksson teaches art education, studio and public art focusing on artistic and participatory processes in public space. She also teaches posthuman theory especially an agential realism by Karen Barad (2007), feminist theory and feminist art, and artistic creative practices. Her teaching expertise is in the area of art in public space, experimental art, artistic research, arts-based research and education and environmental engaged art as an integrated part of teaching and research. At the Visual Art Teachers program her main teaching and supervision concerns arts-based research methods, specializing in the entanglements of theory, methodologies and artistic research & practise.
