the pudas box: the individual protest



Tags: ,

The objective for the exhibition is to investigate the individual protest as a phenomenon in relationship to collective political struggle. In focus stands a standardized box in which anybody is invited to perform an individual protest by engaging in a hunger strike.

The box is a sculpture inspired by a true story from 1982 when a taxi driver and small business owner from Tornedalen named Folke Pudas spent a winter in a box performing a political protest by a hunger strike at Sergels Torg. (A central square in Stockholm.)

In 1982, the local authorities denied Folke Pudas the license to organize a local bus route and revoked his permission to make business. Folke Pudas decided to fight. Instead of giving up, Folke Pudas transformed a local controversy with the authorities into a nationwide political issue. “The Pudas Box” became a new word in the Swedish political vocabulary. Folke Pudas finally won his case by taking it to the European Court of human rights. During the exhibition, it will be possible to book a time in the box for a hunger strike.

You can book your own protest by contacting Nils Claesson, tel: 070 632 93 69 or email: nilstaki@hotmail.com.

the artificial nature project



Tags: ,

The Artificial Nature Project is the latest in a series of four works by Mette Ingvartsen staging perceptions and sensations of nature. The interest in fictionalizing and choreographing natural phenomena started in 2009 with “Evaporated Landscapes”, a performance installation devoid of human presence where the act of performing itself was given over to materials like bubbles, foam, fog, sounds and light. In The Artificial Nature Project, a new encounter between human and non- human performers begins with the following questions:

What does it mean to make a choreography for materials where human movement is no longer in the center of attention?

How can one address the force of things, materials, objects and matters as something that acts upon humans?

What is the relationship between the animate and the inanimate world?

performativity and scientific practice



Tags: , , ,

The concept of ‘performativity’ has long been discussed within the social sciences and the humanities, notably in language philosophy, performance theory, gender studies and ethnography. One salient usage focuses on the value of the non-propositional logical mode of understanding gained through a bodily involvement in the ‘act of doing’. With growing interest in the interface between Science, Technology and Society, the role of the performative act within scientific practice and knowledge production is now receiving more attention.

October 25-26, Delmenhorst. See h-w-k.de for more information.

hamlet II:exit ghost



Tags: ,

In Hamlet II: exit ghost, the theatre stage has turned a into a TV studio, a laboratory in which the actors take apart Shakespeare’s words and characters, in which Teatr Weimar is staging a play within a play. The confusion that maintains between the roles of Hamlet and Polonius and Ophelia and Gertrude exacerbates the madness, doubt and despair overwhelming them. The two actors battle with the play, masterfully navigating between its narrative line and a psychoanalytical interpretation of its mythical protagonists. These are made dramatically familiar thanks to the claustrophobic set and images filmed live. A meditation on identity, the weight of the past and death, Hamlet II: exit ghost is evocative of Scandinavian film and television series as much as the legendary productions of this classic among classics. Shakespeare meets Ingmar Bergman meets The Killing.

Kent Olofsson, associate of forskarskolan, is the composer for this project.
