My speeches and lectures

Here you can see a few presentations, I have created in relation to some speeches and lectures I have given

In these presentations – as in the other Artcademia treatments of academic knowledge -, I experiment with how the aesthetic ‘form’ can contribute to the learning experience.

“Aisthesis and dancing – an exploration of dancing as philosophy”  is a speech I gave the 28th of april 2014 at a dancing festival (SWOP festival) in Roskilde/Denmark. I discuss the question of what dancing is and explore how it is possible to understand dancing as a philosophical practice starting out from the concept of ‘aisthesis’ in Aristotle, and building on the thinking of Heidegger and Adorno.

My presentation of the stage art-project ‘Making and remaking of reality’ in which I participated.

Inspired by the thinking Dr. Phil. Alexander Carnera presents in his doctoral dissertation, as well as critical research on work-life in contemporary capitalism, I reflect on how Making and Remaking of Reality as an art-experiment can challenge the linear performance model of thinking associated with contemporary work-life.

It dives into the difficulties and potentials for art as an emancipating practice in a society characterized by a demand for ‘artistic capacities’ such as creativity and innovation power. Can we use art to deal with the tension between the structure of meaning that we are always already existentially embedded in, and our ability to critical thinking and to create new meaning?

The presentation was used in a lecture I gave on Copenhagen Business School, 11.10.2013. Just click on the picture to get to the presentation (in Danish).

Please contact me, if you want me to give a speech or a lecture in English, Danish or Norvegian. I always strive to make my presentations both intellectually rewarding and emotionally and aesthetically engaging.
