Maja Gunn is a fashion designer and holds a PhD in Design with specialization fashion design from the Swedish School of Textiles. Gunn’s dissertation Body Acts Queer: Clothing as a performative challenge to heteronormativity (2016) deals with design and design methods in relation to gender and sexuality. Gunn is a Professor of Crafts at HDK Steneby, University of Gothenburg. In the last year, she has also worked part-time with a research project at Halmstad University, which examines how design can be used to increase gender equality within the fire department. The project is funded by Sweden’s innovation agency Vinnova. Gunn’s solo exhibition Play (2017–2018) was shown at the Swedish Textile Museum in Borås. She also participated in A Queen Within Adorned Archetypes, a major international fashion exhibition at the New Orleans Museum of Art, USA. Together with Karin Ehrnberger and Camilla Andersson, Gunn curated the exhibition Norm Form (2017–2018), that focused on design that challenges norms, which was shown at ArkDes in Stockholm. In the fall of 2018, Gunn will initiate a new research project at the University of Gothenburg, which aims to examine the functions of craft in relation to norm criticality and social change.
