who are you?
I am Joakim Pusenius, an artist working with moving image and photography. My background is in philosophy and media studies.
what do you teach in Maa?
I teach moving image and audio-visual practice.
what is the role of an artist in today’s world?
I see art making, neither you were artist or not, as an act of slow resistance in the time of fast profit. Art is, and should be, a fundament building block of our subjectivity. It has the ability to function outside the rational and calculated reality, yet still being able to introduce us to the truth.
what is best/most interesting/loveliest little thing about teaching in Maa?
Best thing in MAA is the community. No man is an island. I feel that the uncompetetive athmosphere is crucial in the process of searching ones truly own form and way of artistic practice.
