When: May 8, 19:00 and May 10, 14:00 and 19:00

Metamorfoser is a performance for four voices and electronics by Anna Einarsson with text and direction by Jörgen Dahlqvist. Vocals by Anna Einarsson, Sofia Jernberg, Sara Niklasson and Lina Nyberg. Live electronics by Jakob Riis.

The piece is a variation on Ovidius metamorfoses here the four singers embody their different stages of transformation. The four roles, P, S, G, and N are four archetypes that have either changed themselves or been altered by others’ gaze.

Metamorfoser is also an investigation of the relations that occur as a function the bodily motions in space.

28 april – Clémentine Deliss: The Post-Ethnographic Museum as Curatorial Experimentation

In 2015, an ethnographic museum appears to be out of time, and its collection unable to combine with current concepts of contemporaneity. What can one do to break this stasis and dislodge the anachronism embedded in its collections? How can ethnographic artefacts, of which there exist over 5 million in Germany alone, provide a central pool from which to reconfigure experimental research into visual culture and artistic practice?

victims of modernisation 18-20 may 2015 (1hp)

Tags: , ,

Date: 18-20 May 2015

Location: Stockholm, Ropsten

Stockholm is a city in constant transformation with many huge construction projects that not only adds but also obviously changes the map of the city. During this process there are many functioning houses that stand in the way for a new large scaled building project. We seldom hear about these places, the houses and buildings until they are demolished. During the workshop days we will explore these spaces artists Akay and Klisterpete together with examiner Svante Tidholm, discussing and exploring possible artistic interventions and practices, in an ongoing discussion on their aesthetic and political implications. Please contact Emma Kihl (emma@konstnarligaforskarskolan) for further questions and for signing up.
