Ditte Holm

I am interested in the intersection between art, aesthetics and processes of organizing, e.g. conditions for artistic practice, art’s intervention into public and urban sites and artistic methods of organizing participation and collaboration. In my PhD-project I researched the processes of organizing participation for a public work of art and the conflictual ways in which it engaged cultural policy organizations, city administrators, visual artists, local social organizations and citizens. Currently I am researching the interrelationship between aesthetics and social organizing under the research program: ‘Art and social communities’.

Primary research areas
  • Contemporary art and participation
  • Public art and socially engaged art
  • Social entrepreneurship
  • Aesthetics and organization
  • Arts’ management
