Mikko Karjalainen


Responsible for coordinator at Dutch Coordination Team


My name is Mikko. I'm originally from Finland but live in the Netherlands since 2000.

I'm a musician and a musicologist by education. My studies of post-colonial literature and other critical theory eventually led me to Yanis Varoufakis' videos about post-capitalism. I joined DiEM25 in 2021.

Since late 2022 I'm part of the Dutch national coordination and coordinating the Amsterdam Local Collective together with my wife Lucille.

I write a blog about music from a very broad perspective: musiclifeword.org
