Teemu Hupli is a writer and artist with special interests in the history and philosophy of art, photography and aesthetics. He has taught at the University of Westminster, University of Chester, The Photographers’ Gallery, and a number of other universities. He has shown his photographic and artistic work widely in Europe and the UK. In 2006 he completed a PhD, which examined the philosophy of Immanuel Kant in relation to its reception and uses in 20th-century art historical and theoretical debates, those surrounding Conceptual Art in particular. In 2009 he collaborated with Art & Language on a book, which was published concurrently with their first major exhibition in the Nordic countries, at EMMA, Helsinki. His work, whether written or visual, often derives inspiration from issues and problems in the history of art and philosophy, and he does active research in philosophy, visual culture, and aesthetics.
