New professor in photography

News: Sep 14, 2016

Annika von Hausswolff is professor in photography at Valand Academy since September 2016. Von Hausswolff is an active artist and photographer, and she was most recently guest professor at the Helsinki University of Arts.
The conversation is the foundation of my teaching. I´d rather ask questions than tell a student what to do. Photography is among other things, technology, history, contemporary times and vision. It is a tradition to manage and to renew. I am very proud to be involved in this photographic activity, together with the students at Valand Academy.Von Hausswolff’s works are often loaded with social involvement, staging associative imagery as a method to erase the boundaries between fiction and reality. The topics she often returns to problematize the view on body, sex, inherent power structures and the subconscious. In many of her exhibitions the spatial figuration is underlined by combining photography with sculptural elements.

In the early nineties Von Hausswolff became one of the most influential artists in Sweden. She represented Sweden at the Venice Biennale in 1999 and her works are represented in many Swedish and international collections such as The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum (New York), The Modern Art Museum (Stockholm), Magasin III Museum & Foundation for Contemporary Art (Stockholm), Kiasma (Helsinki), Astrup Fearnley Collection (Oslo).
