Dr. Åsa Ståhl

Åsa Ståhl, PhD, is an artist and a researcher at the Linnaeus University, Sweden. Her work draws mainly on feminist technoscience and participatory design in the inquiry into how humans and nonhumans can live well together. After the practice-based, interdisciplinary and collaborative PhD-work that Ståhl did together with Kristina Lindström, they have continued to explore publics and making through public engagement in postdocs at the Umeå Institute of Design as well as the artistic research project HYBRID MATTERs. Their most recent work is on plastic imaginaries, which is also in dialogue with scholarly work on care and repair. Ståhl regularly presents, lectures and exhibits her individual and collaborative work nationally and internationally.
