Author: Lise Skou & Bonnie Fortune
Lise Skou (born in Denmark, 1966), artist. In her practice Skou engages with post-capitalist politics and capitalist globalisation, working on the basis of theories by e.g. J.K. Gibson-Graham, who focuses on feminist critique of the political economy.
Through a collective practice she sees to envision non-capitalist economies; to show a landscape of economic diversity – one that is not exclusively or predominantly capitalist – and to explore the challenges associated with alternative economic measures and interventions.
Skou is a graduate from the Whitney Museum of American Art – Independent Study Program (2002-2003) and the Funen Art Academy (1998-2004). She also holds a BA (Art History) from Aarhus University.
