Illustrated talk by
Irma Optimist (Helsinki)
Irma Optimist is a performance artist and senior lecturer of mathematics at
Turku School of Economics and Business Administration, Finland. In her
performances, Optimist combines a feminist point of departure with abstract
mathematics and an absurd sense of humour.

She describes her performance as the female optimistic lifestyle and the
opposite of the static idea of art. Her optimistic mathematics “returns the
symbols of food, love and sexuality”.
