Performance Philosophy Conference 2022

The University of the Arts Helsinki will host the Performance Philosophy network’s fifth biennial conference. Once postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the PPP2021 will be now known as PPP2022 and organized in 15-18 June 2022 in hybrid model at Uniarts Helsinki’s Theatre Academy and in Zoom.

Performance Philosophy Problems

How does performance philosophy collaborate? What kinds of problems does working in the field of performance philosophy lead us to encounter and to articulate, and what tools does it provide to deal with them? We welcome artists, philosophers, scholars, artist-researchers and performance philosophers to join us in June 15-18.
