Åsa Sonjasdotter

Åsa Sonjasdotter lives and works on the island of Ven in Sweden and in the city of Berlin in Germany. In her practice, she enquires relationalities of crops; their nurturing generosity, the tensions around power, politics, and narratives related to their cultivation, and also, not the least, how social organisation mobilise and form coalitions around their cultivation.

Sonjasdotter’s work has recently been presented, among several instances, at the Limerick Biennale, the Singapore Biennale, the Bergen Assembly, the Biennale of Warsaw, the Delfina Foundation in London, the Museum of Contemporary Art Antwerp, the Badischer Kunstverein, Lunds konsthall, and the Kasseler Kunstverien. She is the author of the publication Peace with the Earth – Tracing Agricultural Memory, Refiguring Practice (2018, Archive Books), and editor of the English translation of Peace with the Earth (Fred med Jorden, 1940, Bonniers), by Elisabeth Tamm and Elin Wägner (2021, Archive Books). In 2024, she received her PhD in artistic practice at HDK-Valand, the University of Gothenburg, with dissertation Towards Peasant Cultivation of Abundance.
