Professor, Huvudlärare MFA



Annika Eriksson is a visual artist originally from Malmö. In 2002 she received the DAAD artists in Berlin Program and is since then living there. At the center of her artistic practice is an interest in social interaction: how do we live together, what kind of societies do we create, and what happens in the margins or in the transition from one social order to another? Her project also engages with the relations between humans and animals; of our interdependence, slippages and connection, but also registers of violation, and the animal as a distinctively human projection surface.
