Tags: , , ,

Where: Inter Arts Center, Bergsg. 29, Malmö
When: April 22-25

Susan Sontag’s famous essay Against Interpretation serves as a point of departure in the artistic research stranderfrontproject Ögonblickets Anatomi (Loosly: The Anatomy of the Moment) led by Teatr Weimar and the Theatre Academy in Malmö.

The title of the symposium, In the Blend, has been taken from the book by Gilles Fauconnier and Mark Turner where the authors are constructing the term conceptual blending to denote the integration of meaning and terminology in order to create new meanings and new outlooks. The symposium is about thinking in art and includes artistic works, seminars, presentations and discussions.

future jam: horizons

Tags: ,

Where: Tensta Konsthall
When: Sunday 30.3, 14:00

Haunted by Shadows of the Future – HORIZONSthe-time-tunnel-tensta1

A jam session on probable, speculative, or perhaps rather unseemly futures for Tensta in the year 2030. Starring: Adam Tensta, Dougald Hine, Gunilla Lundahl and Tor Lindstrand. Featuring: STEALTH.unlimited (Ana Džokić + Marc Neelen) and Peter Lang.

An attempt to
 re-set Tensta into probable, speculative, or perhaps rather unseemly futures in the year 2030. Will this, yet unknown Tensta be an autonomous zone, where the residents of this disregarded part of Stockholm have successfully taken their destiny into their own hands? Or 
will its multi-facetted society prove so vital that this “new Sweden” comes to dominate the entire country by 2030? Or will Tensta’s original but unfulfilled mission – of creating an environment that acknowledges and gives space to a fully liberated and democratic model citizen – ultimately be re-created? And what would such a citizens’ liberation and equality mean if we could live it today?
