Linnéa Sjöberg is a Berlin-based Swedish artist who works with her own body as she explores existential issues connected to power, identity and gender. She visits us to share her way of working as an artist.

Linnéa Sjöberg b. 1983, has an MA at the Royal Institute of Art in Stockholm. She lives and works in Berlin, Germany. Sjöberg’s recent projects can be described as performative research, embodying the subject of her interest to the point where no distinction can be made between her work and her persona.

After acting as a career woman in a “real-life” performance for almost two years, Sjöberg turned into a tattoo artist, Salong Flyttkartong. More than strategic decisions, both projects developed in slow and naturally processes, and only became discernible as art works over time. The remnants of her actions is documented through text, printed matters, sculptures and textile works.

The artist talk is within the framework of a doctoral course in aesthetics and management at the Department of Business Administration.

Nevertheless, Students and staff at other departments are welcome - just tell us you are coming by sending an email to Jenny Helin.

The event will be held in English! Free entrance!
