Dahl, Camilla


As an artist and a social scientist my intention is to contribute to the discussion on important contemporary topics such as as humanism, human rights and democracy. I believe that there is a big potential for better knowledge and political awareness both for artists and audience. I do this by combining art, crossdiciplinary academic reflection and by involving the art audience in discussions and workshops.
Visually I experiment with different kinds of techniques and media.
