Saara Hannula is an artist and researcher living and working in Helsinki, Finland. Her artistic practice is both transversal and context-specific, weaving performative, curatorial and event-based approaches into spatially and materially oriented processes of making and thinking.
In 2017, she began her doctoral studies at the Performing Arts Research Center (Tutke), located at the Theatre Academy of the University of the Arts. Her current research focuses on speculative energetics, futurity and the ecology and economy of the event.
In parallel with her artistic research practice, Saara teaches regularly at the Academy of Fine Arts, the Theatre Academy, and the Aalto University School of Arts, Design and Architecture.
