Anna Svingen-Austestad

Associate Professor

Anna Svingen-Austestad (PhD) is associate professor in art pedagogy at the Faculty of Art, Music and Design (KMD). She is connected to the post-graduate teacher training program (PPU) in art, music and design.


Her research focuses on aesthetic practices and subjectivation processes both with and without connection to educational institutions. A significant leitmotif is how art practices can inhabit, rupture and transform experience. In particular, she has been concerned with the effects of contemporary art's social and poetic practices and processes, questions of place and existential Territories.


Currently her research has been engaged in critical diversity as perspective, pedagogy and practice in relation to the arts.
