tacit or loud: where is the knowledge in art?



Tags: , , , , ,

Symposium and festival for artistic research

Nov 28-Dec 3, 2014

Call for contributions

Tacit or Loud is an international symposium and a festival for experimental arts at the Inter Arts Center in Malmö, Sweden. Tacit or Loud focuses on intermedia art and presents several international world premieres. Inter Arts Center (IAC) is an organization within the Faculty of Fine and Performing Arts located in the old Mazetti chocolate factory in Malmö. IAC provides good facilities for interdisciplinary projects, including fine arts, music and theatre, but also other arts and disciplines. For information on the venues please see  http://www.iac.lu.se.

Where is the knowledge in art?

We embrace an ecological perspective on knowledge that stretches from the tacit and embodied knowing of the artist to propositional and scientific knowledge production. Indeed, the knowledge in art can sometimes be more loud than silent. We now welcome proposals to a symposium that challenges the format of the scientific symposium. Contributions may be in artistic form (encouraged), as conference papers or in a format that combines the two. The ambition with Tacit or Loud is to merge various kinds of knowledge production in the arts with analytical modes of thinking.  Hence, it is centered around the concept of the lab as a venue for a review of artistic work and research as process.

For the complete call and more information, please see Tacit or Loud: call for presentations.

arrival cities: malmö



Tags: ,

When: June 1 and 7-8, 19.00
Where: Inkonst, Malmö

Arrival cities: Malmö deals with migration in the shadow of the economic crises and the xenophobia that more and more has become the trademark of Europe. An arrival city is the city where migrants from rural and development areas from both in and outside the country try to make new lives for themselves. The arrival cities are often places of violence and human despair but at the same time also dynamic nodes where change can take place. Arrival cities: Malmö is trying to examine different aspects of the politics of migration, from the detention of migrants with the arrival of people coming into Schengen, to the nationalist politicians rage and rantings, to the safe houses where the refugee without papers try to hide from the authorities and finally when they are sent back to their native countries to an uncertain destiny. As always with Teatr Weimar language, power and identity are important points of departure in this performance. Duration approx 1.30-1.40

Concept: Jörgen Dahlqvist, Kent Olofsson, Johan Nordström, Linda Ritzén, Rafael Pettersson, Nils Dernevik and Sandra Haraldsen
Text, director and video: Jörgen Dahlqvist

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.

  • October 20-21, Temps D´images festival, Paris 
  • April 2013, Örebro
  • More dates and festivals will be presented during the fall
