When filmmakers and longtime Dharamshala residents Ritu Sarin and Tenzing Sonam started the Dharamshala International Film Festival in 2012, their main aim was to give the local community a platform for good alternative cinema. Five years later DIFF has become one of India’s leading independent film festivals and draws audiences from across the world.

Klinik
A workshop for artists with Felice Hapetzeder

Time: 16/9 10 am-6 pm
Place: Marabouparken Art Gallery
To attend: Please e-mail osa@marabouparken.se

The theme of workshop is to explore artist’s relationship to censorship and its related mechanisms. The workshop is based on the experience and work of the those participating in the workshop. To what extent are we affected by different types of censorship and self-censorship and how can we protect ourselves?

Klinik is a project developed and created by the artist group Local A. (Felice Hapetzeder and Jenny Berntsson) for artists in different phases of working life who want to reflect on their work and engage in exchange and debate with other artists. The safety of Klinik is created by its privacy. There is no public outcome or exposure of what is discussed within the clinic.

Klinik has been held at Konstfack Alumni, Iaspis, Lilith Performance Studio and Gothenburg Art Hall.

Background
In 2016, Hapetzeder attended the Children’s and Youth Art Biennial in Istanbul. During the opening of the biennale, some of the works in the biennial were censored by the municipal council. Discussions on how to respond and act in this situation; how artistic integrity is influenced and compromised; how artists’ personal and professional safety is protected; how artistic freedom is claimed; are some of the debates that have arisen from the situation.

Back in Sweden, Hapetzeder was faced with a form of corporate censorship when a staff member of a management company questioned a child’s right to express himself artistically during one of Hapetzer’s workshops on Markusplatsen outside Dieselverkstan when what appeared to be a pub-lic place proved to be a private area. The incident at the Markusplatsen made clear what happens when power over decision making that affect creative expressions and participation in society are left to judicious actors.

To continue to study and deepen the discussion, Hapetzeder conducted the pilot project, Practice Based Clinic Against Censorship, supported by the Swedish Institute in 2016 at Maraboparken Konsthall 24-28 October with the Swedish and Turkish artists Fikret Atay, Belit Sag, Secil Yaylali, Johanna Gustavsson and Felice Hapetzeder. Siyat Bant (Black Band), an organization that reports and investigates censored art in Turkey, was also involved during the work. The project resulted in a publication in solidarity with the author Aslı Erdogan 2017.

Women and the man made environment
27 August, at 2pm. Free admission, in english.

A discussion on women’s engagement with the city through the work of Hackney Flashers, Tessa Lynch and Pia Sandström. The event will include a short presentation from each contributor followed by a collective discussion on the importance of highlighting women’s experience and engagement with the build environment today.

Hackney Flashers collective was set up in 1974 and created influential agitprop material, including posters, slides, photographs and collages in the 1970s and 1980s . Their exhibition Who’s Holding the Baby is related to the theme of the exhibition Starting from the Self, and reflects upon the marginalization of women in the public space and the absence of affordable childcare.

Tessa Lynch works predominantly with sculpture and performance. Her work develops from the observation of her immediate surroundings and from her quest for the existence of a female flâneur, the woman who wanders aimlessly. The artist embarks on lengthy periods of active research that see her walking through the city streets in the company of chosen collaborators. These wanderings around the city are later transformed into sculptural installations that recall Lynch’s experience of the urban landscape. Tessa Lynch is based in Glasgow and studied at Glasgow School of Art and Edinburgh College of Art. Recent exhibitions include Now at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art and Painters Table in Gallery of Modern Art for Glasgow International Director’s Programme. Tessa Lynch is currently exhibiting at Spike Island in Bristol with the solo exhibition L-Shaped Room. www.tessalynch.com

Pia Sandströms work features in Starting from the Self as an installation that responds to the architecture and context of Marabouparken. Pia Sandström studied at the Royal Institute of Art in Stockholm and the Academy of Fine Arts in Helsinki. She has been featured in solo exhibitions at several art institutions, including Moderna Museet (2013) where she showed an audio work commissioned for the Hilma af Klint exhibition, Bonniers Konsthall, Botkyrka konsthall, Kiasma – Museum of Contemporary Art in Helsinki, ARTES in Porto, and the Venice Architecture Biennale (2014).

Acts of Self Ruin Study Session with Shahram Khosravi

Marabouparken konsthall

The study session is free but with limited spaces so please book a place by emailing osa@marabouparken.se

A discussion focused on Shahram Khosravi’s research into processes of Inaudiblizing and Unvisibizing.

Inaudiblizing – The Eurocentric knowledge production is rooted in colonial history. Based on a North-South division, theory and concepts are produced in the North and the South is reduced only to empirical data. The non-European is the one to be diagnosed by Europeans. In public debates there is an inclusive exclusion that includes the other as a unvoiced object to be debated, but at the same time excluded as a subject who can think and theorize.

Unvisiblizing – Somewhere in Plato’s Euthyphro we read Socrates saying: ‘A thing is not seen because it is visible but on the contrary it is visible because it is seen’. The other is actively unseen. Rather than being invisible, the other is unvisible: exposed to a conscious act of unseeing, excluding, and left out. The other is not unseen because he is invisible, conversely he is invisible because he is unseen; in other word unvisiblized.

Following the study session there will be opening of Robel Temesgen’s exhibition, There’s No Politics in Painting? 

Shahram Khosravi is Associate Professor at Stockholm University and Researcher at Uppsala University. He has written the books, Young and Defiant in Tehran, University of Pennsylvania Press (2008) and The Illegal Traveler: an auto-ethnography of borders, Palgrave (2010). He has been an active writer in the Swedish press and also written fictions; ‘Round Trip to Ithaca’ in Exiled Ink! Magazine (2011) and ‘The Persian Escort’ in Collective Exile (2013).

Acts of Self Ruin Study Session is part of a two year research programme at Marabouparken, exploring the struggle for collectivity and equality in an age of individualism. Through a range of activities including exhibitions, residencies and a public programme, we will explore acts in which communities and individuals have put themselves at personal risk, or social ruin in the pursuit of other ways of living, and in pursuit of equality and solidarity.

Marabouparken’s Event Weekend

Friday 19 & Saturday 20 May 2017

Join us in Marabouparken’s Spring Clean!
To welcome in the Summertime we open up the doors of the Konsthall with a series of performances and events over two day. The event weekend takes place in connection to our Summer exhibition Starting from the Self that investigates the different ways society structures us to perform in different spaces, from public to private, from home to work. The exhibition is particularly concerned with how gender, race and class play into questions of private and public boundaries and the different ways people have transgressed and renegotiated these borders and the categorisation of space.

There will be food, drink, and Monster club for children. The whole family is welcome!

6.30 pm Johan Lundin: ”Drive On”
A video-mimed live act filled with costume transformations, clown makeup and serious wigs staging humorous body characters and facial gender expressions. Ending up quite unexpectedly on a beautiful queer robotic carousel of feelings. No spoken language.
Johan Lundin touches gender identity, queerness and social structures through textile, video and performance. They have studied textile art at Konstfack, choreography at the School of Dance and Circus and performance studies at Stockholm University.

7 pm Tove Salmgren, ”This is not a performance”
Lately when Tove Salmgren has been invited to talk somewhere, as an artist, she’s been experimenting with reading a text concerning ’problems’. A text which also places saying and doing next to each other, or inside, but not.
Tove Salmgren works with dans, choreography and performance, as initiator and collaborator in different contexts and formats. Recently, her practice has taken curatorial forms, for example in collaboration with The Blob/Anna Efraimsson, We happen things/Manon Santkin and Moa Franzén and together with Kajsa Wadhia, she leads Köttinspektionen dans, a platform for experimental dance and choreography in Uppsala. Her own art can be described as a feminist and philosophical laboratory, a desire to systematically highlight and play with the relationships we have at hand. 

7.30 pm Pia Sandström reads Helga Henschen
Pia Sandström studied at the Royal Institute of Art in Stockholm and the Academy of Fine Arts in Helsinki. She has been featured in solo and group exhibitions at several art institutions, including Moderna Museet (2013), where she showed an audio work commissioned for the Hilma af Klint exhibition, Bonniers Konsthall, Botkyrka Konsthall, Kiasma – Museum of Contemporary Art in Helsinki, ARTES in Porto, and at the Venice Architecture Biennale (2014).

8.30 pm Eugene Sundelius von Rosen: ”Förskolan arborariet”
We follow rabdor 1 and student 2 into the kitchen which is apparently the dining room.

Rabdor 1 looks sown. The performance is in English and Swedish.
Eugene Sundelius von Rosen (b. 1991, Stockholm) works with writing, enactments, reanactments, performances and situations on- and off-stage. Abstract notions of when and where conversations, events or situations are likely, sutiable – and when these arise or evolve is a reoccurring theme.

21 pm–22.30 pm Diana Agunbiade-Kolawole DJ
Diana Agunbiade-Kolawole is an artist who’s practice exclusively utilises lens and non-lens based photography. She has been making Photo-Performances since 2012 which includes Tate Britain,  Kunstalle Bern, Växjö Konsthall, Fylkingen, she will perform in Jelili Atiku’s performance at 57th Venice Biennale.

5 pm Hiroko Tsuchimoto: ”A Memoir from California”
For this performance Tsuchimoto questions how we as human beings identify ourselves according to gender, race, ethnicity, and nationality in the present globalized, individualistic social context.

Starting from Marabous famous slogan Mmm… Marabou, the soundscape of the M(mm) is tasted and tried in a series of tableaux for voice and loop pedal.
Natalie Wuerth (1969) is an artist based in Stockholm. She uses the voice as an artistic, material and medium to approach the relationship between spatial and social constructions.  The voice functions as a way to probe physical space and the body as a bearer of social relations, affects and language. The process is often collective and site-specific.
Wuerth has previously participated in performances at Konsthall C, Stockholm (SE); Godsbanan, Aarhus (DA); Spektrum, Berlin (DE) och PAB, Bergen (NO).

A (collective) healing session through self-loving but also a lap dance of sorts. The performance is in English.
Marcus Baldemar is a Brussels and Stockholm based dancer and choreographer. His interests at the moment are the symbiosis between language and the poetic/political body, healing and love as a method and motivation for change.

In spring 2017, Marabouparken Art Gallery will collaborate with Livstycket in Tensta. Together we will explore the perception of women’s work throughout history until today.
The project includes: an exhibition (5/6–28/5), a collaboration (workshops during February, March, and April), and an event (a fashion show 5/20).

COLLABORATION PROJECT
Livstycket at Marabouparken Konsthall

In spring 2017, Marabouparken Art Gallery will collaborate with Livstycket in Tensta. Together we will explore the perception of women’s work throughout history until today. The project is part of an ongoing, larger project at Marabouparken entitled Acts of Self Ruin, which explores the struggle for collectivity and equality in an age of individualism. Through a range of activities including exhibitions, residencies and a public programme, we direct attention to groups and individuals who are pursuing equality, solidarity and alternative ways of living.

Livstycket is a modern knowledge and design centre in Tensta, involving women from all over the world. The purpose of Livstycket is to provide women who have immigrated to Sweden with an opportunity to learn the Swedish language and culture, while enhancing their self-esteem and providing them with possibilities to integrate into Swedish society.

Early on in its history, Marabou recruited outside labour. From the 1940s and onwards, mainly women were recruited, many from the Swedish countryside and neighbouring Finland. By learning about the history of the Marabou factory and women’s working conditions during this time, the women from Livstycket can draw parallels to their own lives and work experiences. How was women’s work, in factories and at home, valued then – and how is it valued now? The project aims to raise issues about work, profession and identity from a female historical and cultural perspective.

Livstycket applies functional pedagogy, which combines artistic activities with theoretical teaching. Sewing, embroidery and textile printing, paired with Swedish language lessons and social studies, are the basis for the activities.The project encompasses meetings, guided tours, field trips, workshops and lectures broadly based on the theme of Women and Work. Inspired by the project’s theme and context, participants from Livstycket, in collaboration with the staff, will design new textile patterns. The Livstycket participants will contribute with their life stories, experiences and creativity, which, in the encounter with Marabou Park, with its industrial and cultural history, may lead to innovation and self-development.

Textiles, documentation of the working process, design sketches and a new clothing line will form part of a larger presentation of Livstycket, which will be displayed at Marabouparken in May. A fashion show will be held in connection with the exhibition and Livstycket’s annual Spring Fair will take place in the park.

The Strange Half-absence of Wandering at Night

The exhibition Rethinking Flânerie at Marabouparken is accompanied by Johanna Steindorf’s audio-walk The Strange Half-Absence of Wandering at Night. In this audio-walk, participants accompany a female protagonist through the park and neighborhood at dusk. The walk reflects upon the female flâneur – the flâneuse – and the situation for women in public space. It mixes narrative, text excerpts, music and field recordings. The sun sets while the participant walks, bringing out other qualities of this environment.

Rethinking Flânerie is a group exhibition at Marabouparken that presents artworks by the international artists Nisrine Boukhari, Santiago Mostyn and Johanna Steindorf, who challenge the well-known concept of the flâneur in the 21st century. The exhibition curated by Elena Jarl and Iliane Kiefer, will feature photography, films and installations, which raise questions about gender, migration, home and exile.

The figure of the flâneur which was revived in French literature in the 19th century, has until today been widely debated in various disciplines. In the 20th century, artists reused flânerie and created new strategies of walking in the city to problematize the effects of capitalism on a changing urban landscape. Even if certain historical legacies still shape the perception of the flâneur today, Nisrine Boukhari, Santiago Mostyn and Johanna Steindorf show how present manifestations may be a necessity. As contemporary wanderers, travellers and even as a flâneuse they show new strategies to process personal conflicts and social inequalities. The artworks offer different means to experience a variety of narratives, encouraging the audience to rethink flânerie today.

Johanna Steindorf (b.1982) is a German-Brazilian media artist based in Germany. She holds a Ph.D. from the Bauhaus-University in Weimar’s Media Arts department. Her research is based on the audio-walk as an artistic strategy to highlight questions of gender and migration. She is currently a teacher and research assistant at University of Cologne and has participated in various international conferences. Her work has mostly been presented in Germany and Brazil, the show at Marabouparken is her first exhibition in Sweden.

Textile Subtexts

Talks: Michael Barrett and Matt Smith
Wednesday November 23rd, 6 pm
Talks will be held in English

As a part of the Textile Subtexts exhibition events programme, cultural anthropologist Michael Barrett and artist and curator Matt Smith, will discuss ways of reimagining history and the organisation of museums.

Michael Barrett will speak about textile in a global historical context, and how textile patterns, values and meanings are transformed and translated across geographies and time periods. But also how some meanings attached to textile patterns are not translated across geographies or not transformed over time; how some boundaries are stubbornly upheld, and how textiles retain certain core meanings or subtexts often to do with power, gender and race.

Matt Smith will discuss museums as reflections of the societies within which they exist. Something that places those who don’t see themselves reflected in the work of the museums, into the realm of the unreal. Drawing on a number of projects, Matt Smith will explore how curatorial practice in England silences LGBT experiences and how this might be addressed using techniques of institutional critique and artist intervention.

The lecture is included in the admission 50 sek.


Michael Barrett is a cultural anthropologist and curator for Africa at the Museums of World Culture in Sweden. He curates exhibitions, archives and public programs relating to the cultures and societies of the African continent and the African Diaspora. His research interests include the history of collections, migration, global fashion, materialities of African religions, and art and subjectivity in colonial archives.

Matt Smith is an artist and curator.  Solo exhibitions include Queering the Museum at Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery (2010-11) and Other Stories at the University of Leeds (2012).  In 2015/16 he was Artist in residence at the Victoria and Albert Museum.
He received a practice-based PhD in Queer Craft from the University of Brighton, is Honorary Research Fellow at the University of Leicester’s School of Museum Studies and is Guest Lecturer at Konstfack, University College of Arts, Craft and Design.

Following the song’s threads: From traditional textiles to new technologies

Lecture by Paola Torres Núñez del Prado 

Wednesday November 9th at 6 pm
The lecture will be held in English

This lecture is about the quest of finding correspondences between orders and logics between traditional textile and electronics. Starting from the British mathematician Charles Babbage’s inspiration when designing the “Analytical Engine” in the 1830s that is, the Jacquard loom, which is considered to be the first computer. The use of punched cards created for the Jacquard loom, were subsequently used as main input/output in computers until the 1950’s. The lecture will also deal with traditional patterns used in textiles and modern geometry theories, as well as the role of pattern recognition in Artificial Intelligence.

Paola Torres Núñez del Prado, was born 1979 in Lima, Peru. She studied art in New York at Hunter College and in Stockholm at the Royal Institute of Art. She lives and works in Stockholm.

The lecture is held in conjunction with the exhibition Textile Subtexts, and is included in the admission 50sek.

The exhibition Textile Subtexts takes its starting point in the “liberation” of textiles in the 1960s in Sweden. From here the investigation moves back and forward in time to pose questions on the role played by textiles in artistic practices and times.

The Bauhaus Has Never Been Modern

Lecture by T’ai Smith, October 26 at 6pm

The Bauhaus, we have been told, represents all that is modern; the Bauhaus has appeared to be the exemplar of modernity and modernism. But such an assumption is rooted in what Bruno Latour would identify as the contradiction that pervades the modernist enterprise—a fundamental disjunction between its aim of rationality and the actuality of modern experience. As the planet is flooded with stuff, as modern furniture and textiles flood landfills with waste, as CO2 is released into the atmosphere while more modern stuff is produced, we need to rethink the idea that the Bauhaus was ever modern. This talk will reexamine the discourse of the Bauhaus and its commodity legacy in order to consider what the Bauhaus might offer as an alternative in the face of ecological crisis.

In conjunction with the exhibition Textile Subtexts at Marabouparken Art Gallery, T’ai Smith will consider the (gendered) labour and outsourcing of textiles, but also the possibilities that textile techniques and concepts, as initially investigated at the Bauhaus and later by artists in the 60s and 70s, might offer as we seek to reinvent the values that subtend art, economy, and philosophy.

In collaboration with Iaspis, the Swedish Arts Grants Committee’s international programme for Visual and Applied Artists.

The lecture will be in English and is included in the admission fee, 50sek.

T’ai Smith will also be lecturing at Konstfack, University College of Arts, Craft and Design on October the 28th. See more on Konstfack’s website  

T’ai Smith is Associate Professor in the Department of Art History, Visual Art and Theory at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver. She is author of Bauhaus Weaving Theory: From Feminine Craft to Mode of Design (University of Minnesota Press, 2014), her articles have appeared in Art Journal, Art Practical, Grey Room, Journal of Modern Craft, Texte zur Kunst, and Zeitschrift für Medien- und Kulturforschung. She is currently drafting a book manuscript titled Fashion After Capital: Frock Coats and Philosophy From Marx to Duchamp.

Come and meet the authors and the people behind Förlaget, get a signed copy, watch a movie, listen to curator Johanne Løgstrup and join the discussion.

Krabstadt is a town in the Arctic where all the Nordic countries send their Unwanteds. Since 2013 Krabstadt is also a popular reality TV show for people all over the world to watch and laugh at Nordic rejects thrashing through gnarly post-social democratic realities. Now available in a book form! Get a free exclusive peep behind the scenes. What really happened during the making of the show? Meet the authentic characters from your favourite Krabstadt episodes and find out the truth behind this Nordic miracle!

Read the stories of the unflappably long-term unemployed, the tenacious immigrants and those with too many overdue bills who are flirting with minor to mid-level criminal records. The main characters, SchlopSchlop and KK are two annoying yet funny women. The revolving narrative centers on the exploits of SchlopSchlop and KK and their dealings with peculiar co-workers, bosses, clients, tourists and the town’s residents. SchlopSchlop is a lazy smart-ass, while KK is a workaholic fueled by a potent sense of Lutheran guilt. As colleagues, the two are often in conflict with each other, unless united against their vulgar boss-from-hell named IT. Krabstadt is a haven for annoying, funny, strong and diverse female characters with quirky side kicks.

& provocation is a book series that scrutinizes the use of provocation as an aesthetic during the 21th century. Civilisation & Provocation – The Ultimate Krabstadt Fanbook is the second volume in our series, following Heresy & provocation by Tero Nauha (FI) which went deep into the world of provocative performance art.

The Unstraight Museum is having a small exhibition in the parkpavilion in Marabouparken this summer. Part of The Unstraight Museum collection is on display and there will be a joint program of guided tours and other events connected to the exhibition.

The Unstraight Museum is a non-profit organisation working to draw attention to LGBTQI related questions within the museum and exhibition context. The purpose is to make non-normative and unstraight stories and history visible through cultural projects. Individuals who are ”invisible” or ”do not” exist, cannot demand any rights and will never be seen if their lives and stories are not represented. That is why representation is a key.

This is the first time the collection is put on a regular display, where it normally is only shown at The Unstraight Museums website. The collection that exists of mostly ordinary everyday objects is connected with a personal story that gives us another perspective of the meaning or representation of this objects.

Guided tours in Swedish will be available 18th of June, 16th of July and 20th of August, all at 2 pm. No charge.

Sketching thoughts

Lecture and discussion
May 11 at 6.45pm.

Marcia Sá Cavalcante Schuback, Professor in Philosophy, Södertörn University
Gittan Jönsson, artist
Jockum Nordström, artist
Lise-Lotte Norelius, musician

Throughout her artistic career Gittan Jönsson has been sketching her life; domestic chores, life’s joys and its fears. Gittan Jönsson has also produced several comic books dealing with political and societal matters. Jockum Nordstrom, an artist from a younger generation, has become known for working with an aesthetic of sketching and comic book aesthetics and a imagery. The comic strip has associations with childhood matters, perhaps even with a sense of naivety, but is in both artists’ hands turned towards big matters and difficult issues.

In our culture there is an underlying paradigm that the written word conveys truth, whilst the drawn image is tinged with fiction. The philosopher Marcia Sá Cavalcante Schuback challenges in her book Att tänka i skisser this paradigm, and propose to see the image as the essence of truth, not subordinate to the philosopher’s words. In a lecture, followed by a conversation, Marcia Sá Cavalcante Schuback discusses with the artists Gittan Jönsson and Jockum Nordstrom about thinking through sketching.

During this evening the musician Lise-Lotte Norelius will do a vacuum cleaner performance.

The lecture will be in Swedish and is included in the admission price 50 sek.

PUBLIC ENQUIRIES GOTHENBURG

Public Enquiries is a research project which has its starting point in the artistic practice of Kerstin Bergendal, with a particular focus on her earlier project PARK LEK. It consists of three symposia and a publication which will be released in 2017.

The symposium in Gothenburg is the third in the series and it looks closer at how long-term, temporary artistic projects influence discussions about sustainability, city and cultural planning, how situated artistic practices can work as forms of enquiry as well as why such artistic practices are highly relevant today.

The symposium begins with lunch at 12:00 and ends 18:00. Seats are limited. Register here, free of charge.

The symposium will be held in English.

The event is organized by Valand Academy in collaboration with Marabouparken Konsthall (Sundbyberg) and Somewhere (Copenhagen) with support from Region Västra Götaland.

A book and a series of symposia
Public Enquiries is a research project responding to the work of the artist Kerstin Bergendal with particular reference to her project PARK LEK. The wider critical art practice that PARK LEK epitomizes has brought together Marabouparken konsthall (the original Swedish commissioning agency), SOMEWHERE (Art and Public Space Agency, Copenhagen) and Valand Academy of Art (University of Gothenburg) in a collaboration around a book and a series of symposia that will explore the diverse problematics that Kerstin Bergendal’s practice has systematically activated and explored for several decades.

A key goal of the project is to profile a mode of artistic practice and enquiry that engages questions of social practice, durational-though-temporary public art, participatory dynamics, critical urbanism, democratic processes and art outside the exhibitionary complex.

Three public symposia are organised in order to collect perspectives and gather material for the publication due in 2016. The dates of the symposia are: Stockholm (Sundbyberg) 26st November 2015, Copenhagen 28st of January 2016, Valand Academy Gothenburg 21st of April 2016.

PUBLIC ENQUIRIES SYMPOSIUM STOCKHOLM
26st of November, 13:00-17:00 hrs. Doors are open from 12:30. Coffee will be served.
Allaktivitetshuset, Sturegatan 10, Sundbyberg

This first symposium in the series will be organised in Sundbyberg, the small municipality near Stockholm, where the PARK LEK project took place. Keynote speakers and respondents will focus on artistic practices, projects and methods that have developed seminal work outside the exhibitionary complex within corporations, local government or as part of social movements and civic initiatives. These contexts constitute starting points for artistic ventures that are often fuelled by the participation of the stakeholders. However, as soon as art leaves the designated art context it is often followed by a discussion of integrity and instrumentalisation. How are such art practices motivated, articulated and maintained outside the art institutions?

Presentations:

Kerstin Bergendal will introduce some key issues of the PARK LEK project and discuss if and how the artist can act as a cross-runner or mediator between groups of people, places, expressions and forms of governance.

Per Hasselbergs work often address the revival or actualisation of social-spatial concepts and institutional forms. In his presentation, Change Everything!, he speaks about the Swedish heritage of radical social work that was the contextual starting point of his public artwork, the art institution Konsthall C in Hökarängen. The social work in Hökarängen 1977–1985 has been called “the most humane era in Stockholm’s social-care history” The idea of the experiment was to see the clients as fellow human beings, and to cope with social assistance as an insurance policy, instead of an alms.

In her presentation, The Model and the Balloon – breaking into utopia, curator Katrin Ingelstedt adds a new chapter to the story of the exhibition, The Model. A Model for a Qualitative Society at Moderna Museet in Stockholm and the following adventure playground, The Balloon at Råby, Västerås in 1968–1969. She places these events in a time and context that revolted against the existing notions of child and childhood, in the same way as it revolted against a traditional view of art. The presentation leads up to the current project, The Balloon – Play for Real, where artists are conceived as key players in the societal processes of change.

Kultivator is an experimental art project, fusing organic farming and visual art practice. It is situated in rural village Dyestad, on the island Öland. In their practice artists and artistic coordinators Mathieu Vrijman and Malin Lindmark Vrijman discuss the parallels between provision production and art practice, between concrete and abstract processes for survival. In their talk, Models of Collaboration, they will show examples of recent artworks investigating new models of collaboration for shared produce, preparation and experience of food and community.

In her presentation Negotiating the “not-knowing” – Artist Placement Group and the ‘open brief’, Barbara Steveni will introduce the Artist Placement Group, its methodology and core axioms, and examples of Artist “placements” from the 70’s that demonstrate the “open brief” in the wider socio-political contexts actioned by APG. Their original concept was to expand the reach of art and artists into organisations of all kinds (commercial, industrial, and governmental) and at all levels, including decision-making, and on a basis equivalent to any other engaged specialist.

Respondents:
Lena From (Public Art Agency Sweden)
Meike Schalk (architect and associate professor KTH Royal Institute of Technology)
Anna Högberg & Johan Tirén (artists)
Réne León-Rosales (currently postdoctoral researcher at the Child and Youth Studies, Uppsala University).

The editorial team for the book comprises: Helena Selder (Marabouparken konsthall), Stenka Hellfach and Ulrikke Neergaard (Somewhere) and Mick Wilson (Valand Academy).

All symposiums will be held in English.

Genom bilden med David Claerbout

Föreläsning med Annika Wik
Onsdag 14 oktober kl 18.30

När filmmediet var ungt fördes resonemang om hur människorna trädde fram ur skuggorna var gång bilder satts i rörelse. När projektorn startade väcktes människor till liv, när rörelsen upphörde eller bilden frös försvann livet tillbaka in i skuggorna lika snabbt som det hade startat. Som åskådare framför David Claerbouts filmer för han oss tillbaka till det fantastiska i övergången från stilla till rörlig bild i denna tid, sedan, via experimentfilmens undersökningar och olika genrer inom fotografi och film, för han oss i sina verk fram till, och kanske förbi, de möjligheter vi har att vinkla, förskjuta och tänja gränserna för vad som går att göra med mellanrummet mellan stilla bild och bild i rörelse i dagens bildlandskap. Om detta kommer Annika Wik utifrån sitt filmvetenskapliga perspektiv att prata under sin föreläsning. Genom filmklipp tar hon oss med på en resa genom bilder – både bokstavligen i relation till Claerbouts sätt att föra åskådaren genom bilden och metaforiskt genom filmhistoriska och filmestetiska resonemang.


Annika Wik har en doktorsexamen från Filmvetenskapliga Institutionen, Stockholms universitet (2001) där hon forskade och undervisade från 1996-2012. Idag arbetar hon i egen regi med forskning och kunskapsutveckling inom film och samtidskonst. Hon har varit forskningsansvarig på MAP, Mobile Art Production och är delredaktör till böckerna Imagining the Audience. Viewing Positions in Curatorial and Artistic Practice (2012) och Rörlig konstproduktion / Mobile Art Production (2010). Annika Wik ansvarar för kursmomentet videokonst i kursen Fotografiens och videokonstens historia på Konstfack i Stockholm och hon är en ofta anlitad föreläsare i både film- och konstsammanhang.

Forest and trees on the border of nature and culture in Sweden

Saturday September 26 at 3pm 

In connection with the exhibition Nothin’ Shakin’ But the Leaves on the Trees by the artist Edward Clydesdale Thomson professor Lars Östlund, Department of Forest Ecology and Management at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences in Umeå, will talk about his research on forest history, ecology and archaeology followed by a conversation with the artist Edward Clydesdale Thomson.

The forest in Sweden is greatly influenced by people and their use of natural resources – this is true for today but also in the past. In this presentation Lars Östlund will talk about the relationship between people and the forest in northern Sweden, particularly about the remnant natural forests and the Sami people, how people have used the forest and how this relationship has shaped the forest. He will also talk about the culturally modified trees, forest fire and the natural values of old forests.

After the talk a conversation will follow with the artist Edward Clydesdale Thomson who, in his exhibition Nothin’ Shakin’ But the Leaves on the Trees, reflects on the connections between land, ideology and identity.

The Lecture will be in English and is included in the admission 50 SEK.

Belief and Productivity: A Ride in the Forest
Artist Talk with Edward Clydesdale Thomson

In conjunction with the exhibition Nothin’ Shakin’ but the Leaves on the Trees, artist Edward Clydesdale Thomson will talk about the process behind Belief and Productivity: A Ride in the Forest, which manifests itself in five sculptures commissioned for Marabouparken. This will be a presentation about Thomson’s exploration of the cultural history of Swedish forest use and a reflection on the nature of Marabouparken itself.

During an artist residency in Sweden in 2013–2014, Thomson participated in a researcher-led expedition to the country’s northern old growth forests where traces of older, cultural forestry were examined. Traces of this research can be found in the sculptures now standing on the large grass lawn in Marabouparken, where references, images and elements of historical forest use and the industrial-scale growing of spruces intermingle in the same body of work.

Thomson’s sculptures speak of the different roles the trees in the forests have played in Swedish culture as timber, capital and cultural environment. The work Belief and Productivity: A Ride in the Forest is also a reflection on the park as an ideological space. Marabouparken was laid out to give the illusion of a naturally emerged oasis – a place for physical and spiritual recreation that would also create a strong sense of connection to the company and thus further loyalty and productivity. This is where the ideas about Marabouparken and the Swedish forest start to overlap – as models of belief and productivity.

“The narrative of forestry use in Sweden can be read in spiritual, economic and moral terms that define the complex politics of our relation to land use. Notions of identity and the modernistic ideals of productivity produce a responsibility for ‘nature’ that pairs morality and capitalist ideals.”

– Edward Clydesdale Thomson

 

The Artist Talk will be held in English, admission 50 SEK.

From chaos to insight
– talks in collaboration with Grafikens Hus and The Swedish Exhibition Agency

Wednesday September 9 at 4–6 pm
Location: Marabouparken Art Gallery
Language: Swedish

In March of 2014 Grafikens Hus in Mariefred burned down to the ground. This extreme situation ignited many questions, among them what does a public art gallery mean to a community?

In collaboration with Riksutställningar (the Swedish Exhibition Agency), Grafikens Hus has organized four talks around these questions to take place during 2015. Among partners in this conversation series are Magasin III, Nationalmuseum, Marabouparken konsthall and Eskilstuna konstmuseum. International guests will be invited to reflect on these issues. Nina Beckmann, director of Grafikens Hus since 2012, will moderate the series of talks From Chaos to Insight.

Read more about the program series.

Dialogue 3 at Marabouparken Art Gallery: On building a New Public Art Gallery
Does Sweden need yet another public art gallery? If one starts from the beginning again should one be building a physical gallery or are there alternatives? And who is to finance the venture?

The talk is free and open to all, but reservations are required. Limited space is available, first come first served. To make a reservation email: info@grafikenshus.se.

The lecture will be followed by an in-conversation between the book’s editor Kari Conte and curator Krist Gruijthuijsen.

The Girl Who Never Was
Performance by Erik Bünger and Artist Talk with Manuel Saiz

Friday, 28 November at 2.30 pm. The lecture is in English.

The Girl Who Never Was is the third and final part in a trilogy that began with A Lecture on Schizophonia and continued in The Third Man. The project exist both as a lecture performance and as a video and is currently on view in Erik Bünger’s exhibition Written on Tablets of Flesh .

In 2008 an American researcher rediscovers the lost traces of the first recorded voice ever: the 148-old voice of a little girl singing the French lullaby ‘Au Clair de la Lune’. One year later another researcher experiments with the playback speed and manages to prove that what the fragment actually contains, is the voice of a full-grown man. This exact same lullaby is the song sung by the artificial intelligence HAL in the French version of Stanley Kubrick’s ‘2001 A Space Odyssey’. As HAL dies his voice performs precisely the same glissando as the voice of the non-existent girl: a high-strung, insistent voice is gradually slowed down into a deep, sleepy and harmless one. The work uses these two voices as coordinates, and explores how a particular insistency, pertaining to the voice alone, makes it the vehicle for certain kinds of inexistencies, as they make their way into our world. The more we try to shut her voice out, the more persistent her song becomes.

RED ALERT! A talk show on the brink of catastrophe is the title of a series of performance evenings that form part of Marabouparken’s summer programme Uppehåll, in which comedian and performance artist Olof Olsson experiments with the talk show format. The show’s title refers to the highest state of alert at the US Department of Homeland Security. In Red Alert! practically anything can happen.

The main theme of the Wednesday evenings is the interest in the voice as a subject. When we cast our vote in the general election we exercise our right as citizens – we make our voices heard. The ancient Greeks held that people’s souls were revealed in their voices, and in our time we still associate the manner in which people speak with whom we believe they are. And we are also constantly asked to play different roles: as bosses and workers, as parents and children, as teachers and students, as opinion-formers, romantics and entertainers. And in all these roles our voices change.

In RED ALERT! performance artist and comedian Olof Olsson asks: What is a voice? The specially invited guests are all, in one way or another, interested in the politics of voice. We will meet journalist Louise Epstein and comedian Shanthi Rydwall-Menon, musician Bengt Skogholt, artist Rasmus Nielsen among others. The guests will be accompanied by a sidekick, a one-man-orchestra and by the host dressed in an elegant suit, but with too short trousers. There will be a mixture of humour and seriousness in a talk show that is both better and worse than anyone can possibly imagine.

About Olof Olsson

Olof Olsson was born in Helsingborg and has lived in Copenhagen for the last 20 years. Olof Olsson works with spoken performances such as lectures, speeches, comedy, talk shows and Q&As. Having studied languages, philosophy and translation theory, he finally ended up in the art education system. After 15 years of attempting to make a go of conceptual art, Olof Olsson began working with performance art in 2007.

Put to the Test. About the Dilemma of Artistic Research

by Sabeth Buchmann.

LECTURE AT 12 PM, SATURDAY MAY 31 AT MARABOUPARKEN ART CENTER

Put to the Test. About the Dilemma of Artistic Research by Sabeth Buchmann is organized by Katja Aglert and Stefanie Hessler, and held in conjunction with the recently published book Winter Event – antifreeze, Winter Event – antifreeze, Winter Event – antifreeze, Winter Event – antifreeze, released by Art and Theory publishing. Sabeth Buchmann has contributed to the book with a specially commissioned text, and it includes further texts by American feminist researcher Lisa Bloom and Stefanie Hessler, as well as images by Katja Aglert. The book is the result of a collaboration between Aglert and Hessler and constitutes the finale of Aglert’s artistic project Winter Event – antifreeze (2009–2014), now on display as part of the exhibition On Invasive Grounds at Marabouparken.

ABOUT THE LECTURE
In the lecture Put to the Test. About the Dilemma of Artistic Research, Sabeth Buchmann traces the entanglement of artistic and scientific discourses in (post-)avant-garde art. Buchmann discusses them as situated between a neoliberal attempt to make art useful by combining it with science, and artistic research as a genre of its own able to negotiate these borders and problems.

As the privileging of information, knowledge, and knowhow in post-Fordist and thus post-disciplinary societal formations shows, it is their incessant performance that demands new, hence flexible and mobile forms of creative ideas and skills of its social subjects and therefore also its cultural producers. The question it raises for critical discourse is concerned with what type of knowledge artistic knowledge is and how this knowledge is produced and marketed. Buchmann analyzes repetition and rehearsal in Katja Aglert’s Winter Event—antifreeze, contextualizing it as reenactment of formerly image-critical processes inherent in serial forms of production, now under the conditions of a post-disciplinary knowledge society. She argues that through repetition and by putting the work to the test again and again, Aglert seeks to replace the author-centered art object by closed or open systems and transforms the principle of repeatability, the condition necessary for scientific findings to gain approval, back into an aesthetic experiment.

ABOUT SABETH BUCHMANN
Sabeth Buchmann is an art historian and critic. She regularly publishes in books, exhibition catalogues, and art magazines. Buchmann is an advisory board member of the magazine “Texte zur Kunst” and co-editor of the book series “Polypen” on art criticism and political theory together with Helmut  Draxler, Clemens Krümmel and Susanne Leeb. Since 1997, she works as lecturer, and regularly holds professorships at various academies and universities. Since March 2004, she is Professor of Modern and Post Modern Art History at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna.

Book release of Winter Event – antifreeze, Winter Event – antifreeze, Winter Event – antifreeze, Winter Event – antifreeze and lecture Climate Change and Contemporary Art of the Polar Regions: Gender after Ice

Book release
In 2009, the Swedish artist Katja Aglert embarked on an artistic residency research trip to the Arctic. This became the starting point for her project Winter Event –antifreeze (2009–2014). Five years on it has, using repetition and reiteration as its main artistic methods, turned into a complex multi-branched structure, of which this book forms a part and constitutes the finale. The project proposes a different narrative of the Arctic, dissects clichés of romanticism and mysticism related to this context, and deconstructs heroism and so-called discoveries from a norm-critical perspective. The book is the result of a collaboration between Aglert and the curator Stefanie Hessler and includes documentary images by the artist, reference material from a variety of other resources, an extensive introductory essay by Stefanie Hessler, as well as specially commissioned texts by renowned theorists Lisa Bloom and Sabeth Buchmann.

Publishers are Art and Theory Publishing with support from Iaspis, Stiftelsen Längmanska kulturfonden and Marabouparken art centre.

Lecture
In connection to the release, Lisa Bloom, one of the authors in the book, will give a lecture on her upcoming publication Gender After Ice: Climate Change and Contemporary Art of the Polar Regions and on how contemporary artistic practices are re-visualizing the Arctic and Antarctic in response to the issues of global climate change.

Lisa Bloom is an author and teacher who divides her time between San Diego and New York. She is currently a visiting scholar at UCLA’s Center for the Study of Women.

The lecture will be held in English 

Marabouparken art centre kicks off the spring season with two exhibitions in which conceptions of nature and naturalness in a roundabout way open the door to our fickle “inner nature”, which manifests itself in that which is accepted and that which is rejected, in history, culture, in our language and in our idea of ourselves.

Our Inner Nature
The exhibition Our Inner Nature gathers twelve prominent Nordic artists whose works span the 1880s to the present day. Via nature the works reflect and comment on our civilisation and cultural history in which the concept of nature often starts and ends in our own hands. In an act of circular reasoning we define what is natural, apply it to nature and then refer to our constructed image of nature as proof for, and argument against, the unnatural, the abnormal – that which does not belong.

Artists: Ann Böttcher, Kajsa Dahlberg, Olafur Eliasson, Carl Fredrik Hill, Joachim Koester, EvaMarie Lindahl, Sivert Lindblom, Anna Ling, Gerhard Nordström, Henrik Olesen, Nina Saunders, Lars-Andreas Tovey Kristiansen.

Katja Aglert, On Invasive Grounds
In the exhibition On Invasive Grounds, artist Katja Aglert explores some of the ideas related to the widespread notion of a lost natural, primordial state, characterised by harmony and balance, which we strive to re-establish. The exhibition traces the human hand in the proliferation of artificial light, explores the Arctic of male myths and the flora of the World Heritage site of Suomenlinna in neon-based work and video installations. Eventually a completely different idea about the earth’s original state emerges: a world that has always been, and continues to be, in perpetual flux, a world characterised by constant interaction between animals, nature and human beings, the latter of which may be regarded as the earth’s most invasive species.

Wednesday 23 April at 6 pm: Radical Gardening

Contemporary gardening is often understood as being suburban, as being a leisure activity or as being a television makeover opportunity. Its origins are seen as religious or spiritual (think of the Garden of Eden), military (the clipped lawn, the ha-ha and defensive ditches), aristocratic or monarchical (the stately home, the Royal Horticultural Society). Radical Gardening: Politics, Idealism and Rebellion in the Garden uncovers and celebrates moments, movements, gestures, of a people’s approach to gardens and gardening. It weaves together garden history with the counterculture, stories of individual plants with discussion of government policy, the social history of campaign groups with the pleasure and dirt of hands in the earth, as well as media, pop and art references, to offer an informing and inspiring new take on an old subject.

George McKay gives a lecture based on his book Radical Gardening: Politics, Idealism and Rebellion in the Garden of how parks and gardens were favored locations for alternative, radical cultures like music festivals, the peace movement and various kinds of political activism.

The lecture will be held in English

The Disengaged Free Jazz Orchestra

Performance duet by Maria Stiernborg and Kajsa Wadhia at Marabouparken
December 14th and 15th at 3 pm.
Entrance 20 SEK. Language: English

– Stop stop stop colonizing us with arbitrary capitalist power tricks. Trick that capitalist. Overpower that arbitrariness. Trick that catapultist. Empower that arbitrary power of yours. Your power my power yes power no power. POWOW. POW POW. 

The Disengaged Free Jazz Orchestra is confronted with the exhaustion of the possible. They use indifference as political resistance and fine-tune their laziness as an artistic tool, navigating between disorganised junk, schizophrenic intensities and sleepy stones.

Welcome to a performance duet by Maria Stiernborg and Kajsa Wadhia!

 

Maria Stiernborg is a performance artist educated at Dramatiska Institutet and at the Master Programme Art in the Public Realm at Konstfack. Through her artistic practice she is predominantly interested in the relation and the distribution of power between the artist and the audience and the outcome of breaking the ritual contracts.

Kajsa Wadhia is educated in contemporary dance at London Contemporary Dance School and the Laban Centre in London. She currently studies the Master Programme New Performative Practices at DOCH. Wadhia is one of Arena Baubo’s artistic directors. She explores the possibilities of polyphonic and contradictive art through anti-hierarchical and cross-disciplinary collaborations.

FILMPROGRAMME, Magnus Bärtås

6-28 July

During the month of July we show two films by Magnus Bärtås.

Madame & Little Boy, 2009, 28 min

In 1978 the legendary South Korean actress Choi Eun-Hee was kidnapped in Hong Kong by North Korean agents and brought to Pyongyang. Two weeks later her ex-husband, the director Shin Sang-Ok, was abducted to North Korea as well. After spending five years in the country the couple was offered a “contract” which included a public statement declaring their willful defection to North Korea, a major film budget, enormous resources in terms of equipment and extras, and furthermore a re-marriage. Two years later the artist-pair managed to escape, after having directing and producing a number of films in North Korea, eventually taking political asylum in the United States. Not yet finished was Pulgasari (1985), a Japanese-style monsterfilm based on a Korean legend and made in the vein of Godzilla.
Madame & Little Boy is a video essay where historical lines and the circles of repetition in the life story of Choi Eun-Hee (Madame Choi) are examined. The genealogy of the monsters from Godzilla, via Pulgasari to Galgameth (Shin’s remake of Pulgasari in Hollywood) is interpreted as deliberate messages about atomic weapons.
As an experiment with situated narration this video essay takes a standpoint against documentarism and common documentary practice. The story of Madame and Little Boy (the code name of the Hiroshima bomb) is narrated by the American musician Will Oldham (aka Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy) in a studio building next to The Nike Missile Site outside San Francisco. The studio building becomes place for viewing and talking back to images: the surrounding American landscape, the missile site (“a petrified monster”) where atomic weapons were kept in secrecy, clips from Shin Sang-Ok’s production together with footages from North Korea. This site, serving as an intersection of the present and past, is also the meeting place with the Choi Eun-Hee’s gaze, filmed in a hotel in Seoul.

BIOGRAFI, 2012, 22 min

Ola S. Svensson distinguished himself from early age with his large body and uncontrollable laughter, a photographic memory and knowledge that surpassed the teachers`. Through all his years in school and also even later in life, he retained a talent for attracting blows and kicks and heavy-handed embraces. Ola S. Svensson was obsessed with power structures and exposed him self to abusing power regimes, but he was also a literary talent and admired, and identified himself with, the UN nation Secretary-General Dag Hammarskjöld – the Swedish writer, economist and diplomat. At the university he revived the Swedish Social Democratic Student Association and after that he was elected into the party`s chairman committee. Despite Ola’s uncontrollable laughter, huge body and his habits to digress into long, detailed accounts of obscure fractions of knowledge – which made him appear less slick than politicians in general – he was predicted a bright future within the Social Democratic party.

His sudden sickness and death in AIDS coincides with the death of politics as an expression of intention and will and as a force of social imagination. Ola S. Svensson period in politics was a transit period to a phase that has been called the era of post-politics.



 

 

 

 

Men jag då?, Tove Kjellmark, 2006

Filmprogram – Andreas Gedin, Saskia Holmkvist, Tove Kjellmark, Michel Wenzer

6-28 juli visar Marabouparken konsthall två filmprogram som knyter an till utställningen ABCDEFGHI som visas i den stora utställningssalen.

Ett fristående och specialkomponerat program i samarbete med Filmform.
Fyra filmer tar sig an det språkliga från olika infallsvinklar, från den helt privata sfären till den mest publika. Verken pekar på språkets möjlighet som både manipulativt maktmedel som skapar låsningar och desperation, men även som den enda länken till människor utanför den egna, ibland bokstavliga, instängdheten. Vissa av verken använder ett destillerat språk, där varje ord vägs på guldvåg, utformas och uttalas med omsorg, andra det nästan obehagligt vardagliga.

Verken som visas är:
Ich bin ein Berliner av Andreas Gedin
Role control av Saskia Holmkvist
Men jag då? av Tove Kjellmark
Three poems by Spoon Jackson av Michel Wenzer

Samtal + finissage

”Att iscensätta konventioner”

Onsdagen den 19 juni kl 18 på Marabouparken konsthall

Medverkande: Koreograferna Annie Vigier & Franck Apertet (les gens d’Uterpan) samt dansare som medverkar i deras aktuella performance ”Topologie”.

Samtalet hålls på engelska. Välkomna!

Förfriskningar och tilltugg från ca kl 19. OSA till niki.kralli@marabouparken.se

Topologie är ett 10-dagars performance som flätar samman dansföreställningens tid, rum och handling med det offentliga rummet. Fem dansare undersöker scenens gränser och omvandlar ett geografiskt område, i det här fallet hela Sundbyberg, till skådeplats för en performance. les gens d’Uterpan undersöker kritiskt de normer som styr olika konstformer genom performance men även de sociala konventioner som reglerar våra vardagsliv. Topologie är en del av projektet re|action där det offentliga rummet är utgångspunkt och arena för att ifrågasätta konstnärers status, medborgarnas ansvar och de normer och bruk som ligger till grund för samhället. I samtalet kommer Franck Apertet och Annie Vigier att berätta om flera av projekten inom re|action bl a ”Audience” som genomfördes i Paris 2011 och ”You are a dancer” som utarbetats för Baltic Art Centre på Gotland 2010. ”I vårt arbete är publiken oftast inte medveten om vad som kommer att hända. Ibland provocerar vi publiken på olika sätt och ibland tilltalar vi, med avsikt, inte publiken alls. För les gens d’Uterpan består publiken av medborgare som tillsammans med oss utmanar idén om vad det offentliga rummet är.”

Mer om Topologi
Varje dag mellan den 10–19 juni rör sig dansarna Anna Axiotis, Tove Brunberg, Robin Dingemans, Elias Girod, Moa Westerlund på gator, genom parker, bostadsområden, affärer och institutioner i Sundbyberg. Dansarnas individuella färdväg styrs av Topologie-grafen, en grafisk figur, som har placerats på Sundbybergs karta och som bland annat skär genom Marabouparken, villaområdet Duvbo, Hallonbergen Centrum över E18 och upp till Ursvik. De bär inga kostymer eller särskilda kännetecken som avslöjar deras närvaro i staden. Koreografin bestäms av enkla handlingar, som utförs längs vägen: gester, fysiska och sociala beteenden, hastighet och rörelser som noga noteras och upprepas i detalj varje dag. Grafen sammanför dansarna på specifika platser vid exakta tidpunkter. Endast upprepningen av dansarnas rörelser på återkommande platser avslöjar dem. Stadens specifika egenskaper – de miljömässiga, sociala, urbana – blir framträdandets rekvisita och föreställningens längd bestäms utifrån stadens dimensioner. Varje dag går dansarna gradvis allt längre in i den organisation som staden utgör. Koreografin byggs upp och blir alltmer detaljerad. Ljudteknikern Nicolas Martz följer dansarna under deras väg genom Sundbyberg och registrerar ljudet som omger dem. Deras rörelser spelas in och blir till ettljudspår som sänds i Marabouparken konsthalls restaurang Parkliv. Ljudet, bilder och informationen om var dansarna befinner sig visas på Topologies infopunkt i konsthallens restaurang, på Marabouparkens webbplats och via les gens d’Uterpans webbplats www.lesgensduterpan.com under hela perioden 10–19 juni.

 

 

 

 

Parad-fb2

Allt kan hända-paraden gick av stapeln lördagen 18 maj.

Hallonbergsmanifestet består av en hisnande blandning av konkreta lokala frågor, privata angelägenheter och globala problem och är författad tillsammans med människor boende i området. Bit för bit av manifestet visades upp med hjälp av bokstavsskulpturer som bars av deltagarna under paradens gång, till tonerna av Sambombas musik.

Paraden filmades och kommer att läggas till Anna Witts utställning Manifest den 5 juni. Vi inviger verket tillsammans med konstnären kl. 19,  efter Thomas Elovssons föreläsning om text i samtidsmåleriet som börjar kl. 17.30.

Allt kan hända-paraden är ett konstprojekt av konstnären Anna Witt som produceras av Marabouparken Lab. i samarbete med Aggregat, Biblioteket i Hallonbergen, Det Stora Knytkalaset, PARK LEK PARLAMENT och Verdandi Sundbyberg.

Everything-Can-Happen-Parade, “FÖRSTÅ GEMENSKAPENS KAPITAL”, Anna Witt, 2013. Photo: Mikaela Krestesen

EVERYTHING CAN HAPPEN-PARADE

Anna Witt is a German artist (b. 1981) who often works in different local contexts with performative interventions in public space involving strangers, often passers-by. The works in the exhibition Manifesto are connected to a new site-specific work that the artist has been working on in Sundbyberg during the winter. A common theme of the new work and the works in the exhibition at Marabouparken art space is that they act as playfully staged situations where people can express their ideas about society – a characteristic feature of Anna Witt’s artistic practice.

Together with the residents of Hallonbergen Anna Witt has composed a manifesto that was conveyed in a parade during the spring 2013, the so-called Everything Can Happen Parade, where the participants, using sculptural letters, will form the text as the parade moves along. Manifestoes are historically connected to a certain cultural scene or to a political agenda whereas the Hallonbergen manifesto will voice a multitude of perspectives and levels. Concrete topics in Hallonbergen, private matters and global concerns face each other and create a private but at the same universal agenda for the future.

Audition för deltagande i ett 10-dagars performance

Topologie 10 -19 juni
Annie Vigier & Franck Apertet, Les gens d’Uterpan

Topologie är ett 10 – dagars performance som genomförs som ett samarbete mellan de franska koreograferna, Annie Vigier och Franck Apertet, från dansgruppen Les gens d’Uterpan och

Marabouparken konsthall i juni i år (www.lesgensduterpan.com/proj_topologie-uk.html). Topologie utgår ifrån ett geografiskt område, i detta fall Sundbyberg, som blir både föreställningens scen och det sociala sammanhang som ger detta performance dess innehåll. En speciell Topologie graf läggs över Sundbybergs karta och markerar det område där koreografin skapas och utvecklas. Under 10 dagar ger sig dansare iväg till fots på individuella turer i det offentliga rum som bestäms av grafen. Koreografin uppstår ur enkla handlingar som utförs längs vägen: gester, fysiska och sociala beteenden, hastighet – rörelser som noga noteras och upprepas i detalj varje dag. Grafens struktur sammanför dansarna på olika, specifika platser vid exakta tidpunkter. Dansarnas färd genom Sundbyberg kommer att kunna följas från Marabouparken konsthall via kartor och ljudupptagningar.

Audition

Annie Vigier & Franck Apertet söker manliga och kvinnliga dansare för sitt 10 dagar långa performance Topologie i Sundbyberg den 10-19, juni 2013. Som dansare ska du vara intresserad av att experimentera med olika förhållningssätt till skapande, tala god engelska och vara tillgänglig för projektet 9-19 juni 2013 på heltid.

En audition kommer att äga rum fredagen den 22 mars på Marabouparken konsthall kl 9-18.

PARK LEK is possibly the first art project in Sweden that successfully managed to challenge existing plans for re-development of a residential area, and replace it with a constructive set of counter-proposals and guidelines for how the municipality could work with urban planning in the future.

For the duration of four years, from October 2010 – till May 2014, artist Kerstin Bergendal worked together with the local community. Not only did they propose and gain support for an alternative way to densify the neighbourhoods Hallonbergen and Ör, they also managed to change the way the city thinks and acts on issues regarding urban planning. This was done through concrete work with ideas and form, combined with “administrative activism” in Sundbyberg municipal administrations and the City Council.

PARK LEK started off with an invitation from Marabouparken art centre to think and reflect on the City of Sundbyberg’s green public spaces. The result consisted, among other things, of a subjective hand-drawn map of the area of Sundbyberg, presented in an exhibition at the art centre in 2010. This marked the beginning of the project’s next phase where Kerstin Bergendal was invited by the planning department of Sundbyberg to lead a parallel dialogue process regarding the densification of the two neighbouring districts, Hallonbergen and Ör.

PARK LEK part of a research project
The second and third part of the project was realised by the artist Kerstin Bergendal in collaboration with Marabouparken art centre and Sundbyberg City Council as part of the research project  Collaboration on the Design of Public Spaces which was organised by The Public Art Council Sweden, The Swedish National Heritage Board, The National Board of Housing, and The Swedish Centre for Architecture and Design.

Completion in a bright pink room
The project’s final part, PARK LEK PARLIAMENT, materialized as a bright pink open space in Hallonbergen Shopping Centre, where discussions and workshops were conducted in full view amid the shopping centre’s other visitors. At the end of the project in May 2014, the municipal government in Sundbyberg, made the principal decision to use proposals, as well as the working methods of the PARK LEK project in their future work with the urban development.

After four years, the artistic heritage left by the PARK LEK project, to the city of Sundbyberg consists of: fifty filmed interviews with more than 140 participants (for the whole project more than 300 people participated), an accumulation of perspectives on the districts, gathered in a layered map of Hallonbergen and Ör, and a new public platform for discussion in Sundbyberg named PARK LEK PARLIAMENT.

Last but not least the artist handed over a set of guiding principles that can serve as a recipe for increasing local democracy in urban development:

Utopian thinking as planning method.

Accumulation of perspective, rather than streamlining.

The skills of life lived.

Address: Who am I talking to?

Conflicts are part of the work – and can be a good thing.

Time! Time! Time!

Kerstin Bergendal awarded Broder Ejves Scholarship 2014
Artist Kerstin Bergendal has been awarded Broder Ejves Scholarship 2014 for the PARK LEK project, where she used herself as “cross-runner” between groups of people, places, and governance models. The scholarship is awarded by Konstfrämjandet.

About the artist – Kerstin Bergendal
Kerstin Bergendal is known for large-scale interventions and participatory projects that map the participants thoughts and ideas regarding their local surroundings. Trough a structured, yet intuitive process – different groups are presented to each other in order to engage in dialogue about local urban development plans. In this way the artist, in her practice acts as a catalyst for new ways of thinking regarding urban space, design- and building processes.

Hon har givit ut bl a “Missing Links – Reinventing the Local Library” (2008), “Toying with Another square” – Kunstmuseet Køge Skitsesamling (2005) och “Temporary Territories Works by Kerstin Bergendal” / Nikolaj Contemporary Art Center (2006).

Dr. Paul O’Neill är konstnär, curator och skribent baserad i Bristol i England. Han har co-curerat över femtio utställningsprojekt och har skrivit utförligt om den samtida curatoriella diskursen. O’Neill var redaktör för antologin Curating Subjects (2007) och medredaktör för Curating and the Educational Turn (2010) (tillsammans med Mick Wilson) Hans senaste bok The Culture of Curating and The Curating of Culture(s) publicerades tidigare i år.

LÄS DAVID KARLSSONS TEXT HÄR.

UTFRÅGNING NR 1, i samarbete med ABF

Plats: ABF-huset Sveavägen 41
Tid: måndagen den 4 juni kl 18:30

Medverkande: Jonas Anderson f d direktör Framtidens Kultur
Ingrid Lomfors, kanslichef Kulturbryggan
Madeleine Sjöstedt, kulturborgarråd Stockholms stad (Fp)

Moderator: David Karlsson, idéhistoriker och kulturskribent, verksam vid Nätverkstan i Göteborg samt författare till boken ”En kulturutredning: pengar, konst och politik” (Glänta 2010).

Så kallad ”breddad finansiering” är ett uttryck som dykt upp allt oftare under de senaste åren. Det innebär att kravet har ökat på att offentligt finansierade kulturinstitutioner ska hitta nya finansieringsmöjligheter. De myndigheter och instanser som fördelar offentliga kulturstöd gör på olika sätt tydligt att de premierar projekt och institutioner som lyckas hitta nya privata finansieringskällor. I vissa fall villkoras offentliga medel med krav på privat delfinansiering.

Är detta ett sätt för stat och kommun att dra sig undan åtaganden för kulturlivet – att privatisera det kulturpolitiska ansvaret? Eller är det en strategi för att uppmuntra ett mångfacetterat kulturliv, enligt devisen ”kulturens frihet stärks om den värnas av många”? Eller handlar det främst om ekonomisk riskspridning? Vad kommer detta få för långsiktiga konsekvenser? Hur kommer det att påverka innehåll och organisation av arbete? Vilken typ av mångfald leder den till? Och på ett mer övergripande plan: vad innebär det när kulturpolitiken helt inriktas på finansieringsmodeller?

Under 2012 planerar vi – Botkyrka konsthall, Konsthall C, Marabouparken, Mossutställningar och Tensta konsthall – en serie utfrågningar för att belysa och diskutera rådande kulturpolitik och konstinstitutioners och konstnärers möjligheter till finansiering. Under hösten arrangeras fler utfrågningar på temat ”kreativa näringar” och ”gentrifiering”.
