Lise Autogena

Professor of Cross-Disciplinary Art


I am an artist and a researcher. My practice-led research has involved large scale performances, site-specific works, and multimedia installations, usually developed in collaboration with organisations and individuals across many specialist fields. These projects have used custom built technologies and visualisations of global realtime data to explore how the economic, geographic, technological and societal systems we are creating, impact on our human experience and sense of self in the world.

  • About

    I moved from Denmark to the UK in 1987, where I pursued research in glass until the late 1990s. I was nominated for the Jerwood Prize and awarded an Arts Foundation Award for my work in glass in 1998. I curated a cross-disciplinary art venue ‘Autogena Projects’ in Covent Garden until the late 90s, and in 2004 I co-founded the Christiania Researcher in Residence programme (CRIR), an international research facility, enabling cross disciplinary research into the urban social living experiment, the Free Town Christiania in Copenhagen. Between 2003 and 2009 I co-founded the floating community, Hermitage Moorings, adjacent to Tower Bridge on the river Thames in London.
