Profile Information

Performance Discipline
Artist - Artistic Director
Jørgen Callesen, Ph.D.
born 1966 in Denmark.

I am an artist, curator, artistic director, teacher, researcher and a queer activist.
I hold a Ph.D. in information & media studies form Århus University and I have artistic training and influence from media art, puppetry and butoh.

At present I am the artistic director of the live art venue – warehouse 9 in Copenhagen, which is the first State Funded art space in Denmark with a queer profile.

Since 2001 i have beeen part of the Danish and International queer scene as a co-funder of the performance ensemble “dunst” in which I acted under the name “miss fish”. Both under my civil name and under the pseudonym “miss fish” I have done several art actions, performances, lectures and installations to question and challenge norms and aesthetics regarding gender and identity. The pieces have been presented in different formats and venues ranging from art academies, theater festivals, TV interviews, electro concerts, DJ sets, public interventions etc.

As a researcher I am interested in documentation and dissemination of theory and practice in Live Art and Queer Art.
