About Sanne Kofod Olsen

I am cand.phil. and in art history from University of Copenhagen and has a master in management development from Copenhagen Business School (CBS).

I have been the vice-chancellor of the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Art, Schools of Visual Art & Kunsthal Charlottenborg in Copenhagen; Director at Museum for Contemporary Art in Roskilde and Dean at Funen Art Academy. Before this I was employed at the Danish Art Foundation apart form being a freelancing curator and writer. Among others I have been member of the Danish Arts Foundation Council, Novo Nordisk Research Foundation Art History Committee and am at present chair of Scenatet – Ensemble for experimental music and conceptual art and member of Bikuben Foundations Committee for Academic Guest House in New York.

As an art historian, writer and curator I have been preoccupied with contemporary art and feminist art since the 60's, especially in the field of performance art, but also other genres. During the last few years my focus have often been on management, on a practical as well as theoretical level in relation to art education, but also for a few years museum management. I am still preoccupied with writing about art and curating exhibitions to a limited extent.
