Joonas Lahtinen (* 1984, FIN/A) is a performance and installation artist, director, researcher and teacher who lives and works in Vienna and Helsinki. Since 1995, he has performed in various Live Art, theatre and TV productions. In his projects, Joonas explores the politics of space and of the everyday from perspectives that are both humorous and disturbing. Many of his performances are site-specific and have a strong installational character. His recent works include the performance/installations R.I.P. SERVICES at URB 16 Festival (Kiasma Theatre/Finnish National Gallery); YOYO – You are On Your Own at URB 14 Festival (Kiasma Theatre/Finnish National Gallery), brut Wien (Vienna) and HomeFest (Bucharest); I BLAME YOU, TONY BLAIR! at imagetanz 2014 festival (brut Wien) and Kiasma Theatre (Helsinki); and EIN.KÜCHEN.BAU that toured internationally as part of the Freischwimmer-festival (Germany, Austria, Switzerland) and was invited to STAGE Helsinki Theatre Festival 2013 and to SOHO in Ottakring Festival 2016 (Vienna). Joonas also realized the sound installations What’s your Take on Mad House? (Mad House Helsinki 2017) and Wie stehen Sie zum brut? (brut Wien 2015).

Since March 2017, Joonas has been working as a University Assistant (Lecturer/Researcher) in Art and Education at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna. Joonas has studied Performance at Queen Mary, University of London and is writing his PhD dissertation about power relations in and political underpinnings of participatory performance practice at the University of Helsinki.
