Sharing diverse realities, conditions and strategies – 19 international artists explore artistic research

Pressmeddelande   •   Sep 23, 2019 11:57 CEST

The extensive exhibition of CrossSections with 19 participating artists is the first international exhibition taking place at Konstfack. This is a result of an on-going collaboration since 2017 and an important step toward expanding Konstfack’s international position and its exhibitions program.

Developed and curated by Basak Senova, independent curator and designer who holds a PhD, CrossSections aims at discussing and sharing diverse realities, conditions and strategies in different geographies. By placing artistic production at the center of its research and mission, CrossSections is shaped by the cumulative, interdisciplinary input and data through meetings, residencies, performative presentations and publications. CrossSections is designed as a platform for explorations into artistic research and education through dialogue and production. The project employs an open format to reflect upon “process” with the intent to articulate critical reactions to the political, economic, and social disturbances facing us today. Over the course of three years (2017–2019), the artists, together with other scholars and cultural workers, have organized various meetings, workshops, exhibitions, performances and book launches in Vienna, Helsinki and Stockholm.

Participating artists include Heba Y. Amin, Nisrine Boukhari, Benji Boyadgian, Yane Calovski, Ramesch Daha, Ricarda Denzer, Nikolaus Gansterer, Inma Herrera, Barbara Holub, Otto Karvonen, Ebru Kurbak, Bronwyn Lace, Marcus Neustetter, Behzad Khosravi Noori, Egle Oddo, Isa Rosenberger, Lina Selander, Tamsin Snow and Timo Tuhkanen.

The curator and artists who are a part of CrossSections have previously been working with Konstfack through our Research Week, Higher Seminars as well as with Professor Bella Rune and students from the CRAFT! master’s programme. Behzad Khosravi Noori, one Konstfack’s current PhD candidates is an artist participating in CrossSections.

The exhibition at Konstfack will center on communicating paths of artistic research and knowledge. The exhibition design is intended to give an insight into the working methodologies of the artists and their different media.

Opening: 2 October, 6–8 p.m. The exhibition is open 2–15 October.

Opening hours: Monday–Thursday 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Friday 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and
Saturday 12 to 4 p.m.
