Prayer for Performance Art is a new project by Josef Ka, a permanent performance artist of the Quantum Critic program.

International performance, visual and sound artist Josef Ka’s blends richly varied influences – everything from Butoh dance to cinematic theory – with her decades of nomadic world travel to create bold, highly personal site-specific art. Josef Ka’s themes range from investigating the place of the human body in contemporary reality to exploring the inner body as a representative system of our human and post human kind.

Her artistic practice often actively invites the audience inside a sort of private reverie, making it a deeply participatory one; she actively engages with both her audiences and with a wide diversity of other experimental artists.

In addition to her own work, Josef Ka curates a regular series of events and exhibitions at her Helsinki underground space – Sauna Gallery – and teaches classes on the theory and practice of performance art. She is also the inventor of the WORST THEATRE and her personal training system, KA-YOGA.
