I am a Helsinki-based scholar, born 1972 – and writer. I work as Principal Lecturer (a life-long honorary track position, based on distinguished teaching merits) at Aalto University’s school of ARTS, at the Department of Art and Media, where I teach MA and doctoral students. One could call me a generalist, and, yes, I feel a bit homeless in every field, but if I had to choose 6 tags for my scholarly work, they would (in this order) be aesthetics, philosophy, cultural studies, art research, film studies, and idea history. But I am also interested in e.g. heritage, body philosophy, excess, kitsch, popular culture and rap music.

I have professional history in performing arts, gallery management (ROR Gallery, Kallio Kunsthalle, Gallery KLEIN), critique, essays, fiction and art writing (e.g. Kunstkritikk, Flash Art, Art Pulse) – with some sporadic takes also on e.g. food (see a note on my still quite fresh food book Mechelinin tähtiä, in Finnish).

Theoretically or methodologically speaking, I work in the crossroads of (German) phenomenology, Italian hermeneutics, the Frankfurt School, pragmatist aesthetics, echoes of the Birmingham School of cultural studies, East European semiotics  and Indian philosophy – without forgetting the ‘queminist’, race and class sensitive touch that quite naturally lands in nearly every text, echoing my background: I am not from the middle class and my immigrant childhood in ‘multicultural’ environments like Rinkeby Stockholm (working class cosmopolitanism) left traces.

Especially my book On The Philosophy of Central European Art: The History of an Institution and its Global Competitors (Lexington Books, Rowman & Littlefield 2020), an introduction to the birth and development of the concept of art and the art system in Central Europe, its global outreach through colonialism and diaspora – including an analysis of the way highbow art has appropriated‘ folk’ art and popular culture – has a societal outreach. My latest book, Bodily Engagements with Film, Images and Tech: Somavision (Routledge, 2022) is a journey into film, social media, photo documentation and other contemporary media practices from the point of view of the soma (body-mind). Fall 2023 Routledge published mine and Jozef Kovalcik’s A Philosophy of Cultural Scenes in Art and Popular Culture, which is about scenes, i.e. rap scenes, theater scenes and music scenes, and what they are, culturally and aesthetically speaking. My next book, Realism, Myth, and the Vernacular in Pasolini’s Film and Philosophy: Beyond the Middle Class Matrix, which will be published by Palgrave August 2024, is on the societal, philosophical, one could say nearly ‘aesthetic’ side of Pier Paolo Pasolini’s lifework. Right now I am preparing my book about the aesthetics of martial arts (and martial arts movies) and editing a book on Gianni Vattimo’s philosophy (more on this soon).

Lately I have also e.g. edited the  volumes Art, Excess, and Education (Palgrave 2019; with Kevin Tavin and Mira Kallio-Tavin) and Aesthetics in Dialogue (Peter Lang 2019; with Zoltan Somhegyi). Aesthetics Perspectives on Culture, Politics, Landscape: Appearance of the Political, co-edited with Elisabetta Di Stefano and Carsten Friberg came out summer 2022 (Springer, June 2022), as well as Cultural Approaches to Disgust and the Visceral (Routledge, co-edited with Susanne Ylönen and Heidi Kosonen, August 2022). The Changing Meaning of Kitsch, which I edited with Paco Barragan, was published February 2023. 2023 I also published with Zoltan Somhegyi (eds.) Aesthetic Theory Across The Disciplines (Rowman and Littlefield).

Topic-wise I have worked on e.g. film, moving image, contemporary art, body philosophy, appropriation, urban aesthetics, architectural heritage, disgust, aesthetic experience, media, pop, kitsch, rasa theory and critical perspectives on the art system art. Lately I seem to have been drifting also into more general questions in philosophy (robotics, Marxism). As a reader, right now, I am very much into philosophical thinking in e.g. Sufism, ancient India, pre-modern Japan and the (geographical, linguistic, educational) European margins.

I am PhD in aesthetics from the University of Helsinki (2009). As adjunct professor (docent) of aesthetics in the same university, of aesthetic culture at the University of Eastern Finland, and of popular culture and contemporary aesthetics at Jyväskylä University, and ex Chair of the Finnish Society for Aesthetics (2014-2018), ex member of the board of the International Association of Aesthetics (2014-2018), and now member of the board of the Nordic Society for Aesthetics, I have naturally published articles on ‘pure’ philosophy of art, e.g. in journals like Contemporary Aesthetics (another one here, one here too), Nordic Journal of AestheticsJournal of Somaesthetics and Terra Aesthetica, but most of my work is still semi-practical, essayistic or something which you could refer to as applied aesthetics or extended aesthetics, which extends aesthetics into other fields. I mainly like publishing books, taking on a topic holistically, and journals serve more as platforms In Finnish I have published essay books (on ice hockey and film) and in art magazines (Filmihullu, Art Pulse, Flash Art, Atlantica Internacional, Kunstkritikk) I have published philosophical interviews and theoretical essays.

I am the (founder and) editor-in-chief of Popular Inquiry: The Journal of Kitsch, Camp and Mass Culture together with Jozef Kovalcik. With Richard Shusterman and Falk Heinrich I was 3 years the editor of The Journal of Somaesthetics, and I still continue on the advisory board of the journal. I am also on the international advisory board of ESPES, The Journal of Global Popular Culture, the Finnish journal for art education Research in Arts and Education (2018-), Journal of Ecohumanism (2021) and Nuova antropologia filosofica – and an ex board member in The Nordic Journal of Aesthetics (2002-2005), Terra Aestheticae (2019-2022), Aesthetica Universalis (2017-2022) and the Finnish journal for artistic research Ruukku (2017-2019).
