Congratulations on successfully completing your PhD, Doctor Marie Fahlin!


Marie Fahlin successfully defended her artistic research project Moving through Choreography – Curating Choreography as an Artistic Practice on 28 April 2021, within the PhD programme Performative and Media based practices. The documented artistic research project (doctoral thesis) can be found in Research Catalogue and DIVA.

– It feels wonderful that everything went so well. At the same time, it also feels a little sad – I’ve lived with this research project for such a long time now, and still have a deep interest in it, so it does feel a little strange to not continue, says Marie.

Several activities planned after the public defence
– On Sunday we’re holding a closing stream for the exhibition Centauring, Marie Fahlin explains, with a release of the journal Koreografisk Journal, a discussion on artistic research and a programme of live art performances. I have institutional and conference presentations planned for this spring and autumn, as well as some smaller projects in the autumn. I will be re-examining all my material with a bit of distance and formulate areas and potential questions I want to keep researching, curating and choreographing, says Marie.

 Visit the project Moving through Choreography – Curating Choreography as an Artistic Practice in DiVA and on the Research Catalogue.

The public defence took place at the Marabouparken Konsthall, on 28 April 2021 at 14.00–18.00. The public defence was live-streamed on SKHs website.
