- Kungliga Konsthögskolan/ Royal Institute of Art: “Sea-Fearers & Glitch Witch Gathering in Haunted Times”
For the LUSTHOLMEN festival, KKH’s Mindepartementet presents “Sea-Fearers & Glitch Witch Gathering in Haunted Times.” a series of artistic presentations inspired by a sailing adventure on Skeppsholmsgården’s ship ‘Shamrock.’ The installations and performances draw on explorations into the military history of Skeppsholmen and artistic inflections of LARP (Live Action Role Play). These events are the culmination of artistic ‘research laboratories’ by teachers and students looking into the entanglement of artistic practice and war through technological tools, strategies of communication between the past and the future, and interactions between the human and non-human. There will be several site-specific happenings on the island, including a procession to escort visitors from one location to another.
- ArkDes: “Utomhusverket”
Designers Mira Bergh and Josefin Zachrisson will be at Utomhusverket 2022 to have an open dialogue about their prototypical public space. Sit back, relax, and chat about what public space means to you.Through the lenses of pleasure and the emotional relationships we forge with the spaces we share, Mira Bergh and Josefin Zachrisson’s secluded pleasure garden for Utomhusverket 2022 challenges tendencies to neutral public space. Their artificial garden establishes space for visibility and invisibility, trysts, assignation, and play.Utomhusverket is ArkDes’s annual summer outdoor installation. Each commission stitches the spaces of the museum to the streets of the city by way of a large-scale outdoor installation, creating a testing ground that makes room for architects and designers to imagine new possibilities for public life. Each iteration seeks to demonstrate the potential of inclusive and design-driven public space, enabling individual and collective action in the heart of the city.
- MDT: Stina Nyberg “Make Hay While the Sun Shines”
“All that you touch You Change. All that you Change Changes you. The only lasting truth Is Change.” ― Octavia E. Butler, Parable of the SowerMake Hay While the Sun Shines is a series of dances which maps the dancing movements of our histories. The dance performance engages in time specific and partial views, the uncategorized details that pre-exists the whole, and the chaos called reality. This performance of Make Hay While the Sun Shines is a new dance in the series, with an extended cast of eight dancers and music by KABLAM.
