Queer related themes, situations, and characters often pop up – not as the main subject – but as uncommented elements, simply because it is (should be) part of daily life. Astrup holds a BFA from the Academy of Fine Arts in Oslo and a BA in Film, Media, and Rheotoric studies from University of Copenhagen/Humboldt & Freie Universität, Berlin. Genres: Performance, music, video, installation.
