Lise Skou graduated 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.
Over the past years Skou have been working on the basis on feminist critique of the political economy. Through different modes of expression – e.i. video, reading performances, texts, long-term platform based and collaborative projects – she explores challenges associated with alternative economic measures and economic diversity. As a method to develop knowledge as part of her artistic practise Skou organises discursive events, seminars and readings to develop different perspectives on contemporary conditions such as precarity, feminized labour and feminist economies.
