Kamilla Freyr


As a philosophical aesthetician I primarily focus my research on philosophy as reflective practice in relation to contemporary art and art dissemination. In my PhD project I appropriate the thinking of Michel Foucault and Jacques Rancière. In my research I am interested in contemporary art, museums, art in public spaces, monuments/memorials, art dissemination and philosophical conversations/philosophy with children. I link my research to concepts like power, counter-power, discourse and dissens(us). I am also involved in research as an historian of ideas, as well as in different art and dissemination projects with the art scene.

At the Department of Art, Design and DramaI I teach philosophical aesthetics, art theory and art dissemination. I also coordinate the second and third year of the program Art and dissemination.

Educational background: PhD student in Philosophical aesthetics (University of Uppsala), Major in History of ideas, Master´s degree in art history, intermediate study in Social Anthropology and Gender and Culture-studies (University of Oslo), Art education (University of Stockholm), Oral storytelling and Pedagogy (Oslo University College)
