About

 

Dear Human Being.

I title myself “Kierkegaard-explorer” – or “paradox-promoter”.

Since 2001 I have been full-time-exploring the art of Søren Kierkegaard: How to actually live it! … in physical everyday reality and how to share this art with others – in new not only literary artforms – in a way so that it is not turned into factual knowledge but kept alive.

Academically I have been employed as an “artistic guest-professor” at Aarhus University and as a “research-fellow” at the The Hong Kierkegaard Library, St. Olaf College, USA.

Originally I was trained as an actor at the London Academy of music and Dramatic Art and I have studied psychology at Aarhus University.

With unconditional greetings

Claus Damgaard
