Ida Lennartsson, Guest professor for introduction to artistic work

Ida Lennartsson (born in Mjölby/SE, 1982, lives and works in Berlin/DE) achieved her BA at Oslo National Academy of Art and her MA at the Hochschule für Bildende Künste in Hamburg. Her practice encompasses objects, video and performance. She works with circumstances, establishing links between the object, their symbolic meaning, their social and economic value, and the viewer’s reading. In so doing, Lennartsson focuses on the object’s symbolic strengths, which she reveals and whose universal significance she calls into question.

She has exhibited at places such as Kunsthaus Hamburg (Hamburg), Kunstverein in Hamburg (Hamburg), Projects Arts Centre (Dublin), Podium (Oslo), GSL Projects (Berlin) Galleri Bonn (Stockholm) and SiteA Gallery (Yokohama). Lennartsson is a co-founder of the feminist platform CALL, and has worked and resided in Koganecho Yokohama (Japan) and Busan (South-Korea).
