Mika Elo

Uniarts Helsinki, Finland

Since 2015 I work as professor of artistic research and as the head of the doctoral program in Fine Arts at the Academy of Fine Arts, Uniarts Helsinki. My research interests include philosophical media theory, epistemology of artistic research, and spatial practices. I am participating in discussions in these areas in the capacity of curator, visual artist and researcher. I am one of the founding members of Space + Practice Working Group active in the frame of EARN network. In 2012–2013 I co-curated the Finnish exhibition Falling Trees at the Biennale Arte 2013 in Venice. During 2018–2019 I was working as co-convenor of the Research Pavilion #3 and during 2019–2022 as the PI of one of the research projects in the consortium Post-digital Epistemologies of the Photographic Image. I am also active in editorial boards of Tiede&Edistys (2010– ), RUUKKU (2012– ) and JAR (2010–2019).
