MA Johanna Tuukkanen researches curatorial practices of new genre public art and the dialogue between new genre public art and public space from the point of view of the curator. Through 5 cases, both international and Finnish, she contributes to the conversation about redefining curation and its current practice.

The context of new genre public art brings up the question of the social, space and the everyday. Tuukkanen utilizes theories focusing on everyday practices and research traditions of space production in art studies which brings a multidisciplinary viewpoint to this research.
