April 19 2013 Konstnärliga forskarskolan is organizing a screening/seminar with Mike Sperlinger & Lisa Tan (1hp)

April 19: 11:00-17:00 at Bio Rio, Hornstulls strand 3, Stockholm.

The workshop consists of a combined event of screening and discussion, where Lisa Tan will show her work Sunsets (2012) as well as her forthcoming work Notes from Underground (provisional title) and Duncan Campbells Bernadette also will be screened. The seminar will support a discussion around withdrawal and its possibilities, and will address a certain drive towards transcending subjectivity and language through participation and self-reflexivity. The screening/seminar takes place at Bio Rio in Stockholm April 19, and is limited to 18 participants.

Lisa Tan is a PhD candidate in Fine Art at the University of Gothenburg, Valand Academy.  She is making a trilogy of video works where the intersection of private and professional life, reaction to what might be called threshold experiences, and pondering the affective qualities of natural phenomena amidst the mundane– all figure prominently in the making of the work.  Her research is generally preoccupied with the linguistic handling of experience and the video work is subtly aided by literary figures such as Clarice Lispector and Susan Sontag, whose respective enigmatic presence gives way to a discussion on creative labor and ways of being.

Mike Sperlinger is the assistant director of LUX, the institution in London that holds the largest collection of artists’ film and video.  His criticism and articles have appeared in AfterallDotDotDot,FriezeTexte zur Kunst.  He’s written catalogue essays: ”Terms of Use” (curated by Lisa Rosendahl, Montehermoso), ”Keith Arnatt”(Henry Moore Institute), ”If You Say Something, See Something” (Piet Zwart student catalogue, Rotterdam, 2010), and a forthcoming ‘interactive fiction’ project with Ed Atkins.  He has co-edited FR David with artist/designer Will Holder and published by de Appel, Amsterdam.  He co-curated a Marianne Wex exhibition at Badischer Kunstverein (2012): ‘Female’ and ‘Male’ Body Language as a Result of Patriarchal Structures“, the first major exhibition of Wex’s work in Germany since the 1970s.

showing showing



Tags: , , , , ,


Thursday January 20 2011, between 1 – 5pm there is a lecture entitled “Showing showing: archival pratices and immaterial work” at the Valand School of Fine Arts, University of Gothenburg. Beatrice von Bismarck (Leipzig/Berlin), art historian, curator and director of the new Masters Programme, Cultures of the Curatorial, at the Academy of Visual Arts in Leipzig, will lecture on how artists have been working with archive material and “immateriality” since the 1960s. How can the tension between material and immaterial cultural heritage be considered in relation to, for example, the movement of Conceptual art away from the object and the permanent, towards what the curator and writer Lucy Lippard at the end of the 1960s called “the dematerialization of the art object”? The lecture is the second of three events on “Performing the curatorial” curated by Maria Lind under the aegis of the Cultural Heritage seminars at the University of Gothenburg, a gathering point for the critical scholarly examination of and artistic perspectives on questions of cultural heritage.

uncertainty in the city



Tags: , , , ,

November 4 2010 there is an artistic seminar at the Faculty of Fine, Applied and performing art at the Universityof Gothenburg exploring artistic research through a theoretical and practical application of socially engaged art practices. The seminar takes place at Valand School of Fine Arts,  16 -20 pm and is organized by Professor Bryndís Snæbjörnsdóttir who will also present a brief outline on her and Mark Wilson´s recently completed research project Uncertainty in the City currently on show at the Storey Gallery Lancaster UK.
Keynote speaker for this event is Julie Crawshaw. Julie originally trained in Fine Art. She has a postgraduate in Development Studies, and is now undertaking a PhD in Planning and Landscape (University of Manchester) in order to articulate the role of art and the artist in regeneration. She is a Sustainable Consumption Institute Doctoral Scholar (UoM) and a current Fellow of Akademie Schloss Solitude (Stuttgart).
Julie will talk about her recent ethnographic study of art practice (research) through the lens of urban regeneration (in the North of England). The presentation will consider the role of art practice within a multi-disciplinary team (of human and non human actors), in thinking about and realising ‘projects’ to support urban ‘regeneration’.
The artists Elke Marhöfer a recent PhD student at Valand and Annika Lundgren, a senior lecturer at Valand, will also present their artistic research.
Elke Marhöfer will talk about her research in P’ansori music, an ancient Korean epic-song-form. It will focus on the formalization of the past as an “invention of tradition”, and how this is used in neo-liberal humanism to built a national identity. She will also present a film project, resulting from this research and that mirrors the power relations involved.
Annika Lundgren will be presenting her recently finalized project The Stock Is Rising, which took place partly online and partly in Frankfurt as a part of the exhibition Playing The City 2, arranged by Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt. The project stages an attempt to levitate the Frankfurt Stock Exchange, commemorating the late Abbie Hoffmans Pentagon levitation, and deals with how faith creates reality and with the aspect of irrationality within power structures as well as within resistance strategies.
Food and refreshments will be served during the interval. Please register your attendance with Anna Holgen anna.holgen@valand.gu.se before 1st November.
