About me

Joa Hug is a Berlin-based artist researcher with an artistic background as dancer and performer and an academic background in the humanities (History, Political Science, Sociology, English). His artistic research is crafted around Body Weather performance training and explores the epistemic potential of touch as a relational technique to investigate the relations between conceptual and more-than-conceptual modes of thinking and writing. Hug earned his D.A. (Doctor of Arts) at the University of the Arts Helsinki/Theatre Academy; his doctoral thesis “Propositions for Unfinished Thinking: The Research Score as a Medium of Artistic Research” (2020) is published on the Research Catalogue.
