Art+Research: Postum Dialogue

25 Aug, 18:00

Archeology and art meet in a tender feminist embrace with the new collaboration of artist Signe Johannessen and Christina Fredengren, Researcher within Archaeology and Classical Studies, together with Cullberg.

The presentation is broadcasted live on Accelerator’s Facebook page , where it is possible to ask questions to the participants via the comments section. The event is recorded and available on Accelerator’s podcast and YouTube channel. The conversation is in Swedish, 75 min.

Part dialogue, part ritual, the pair will address the archeological case of SHM 24217 and traces of history that contain intellectual, physical, emotional and mystical meanings. The evening will embrace feministic potential in this queer finding and clasp posthuman connections between domesticized animals and humans. In Swedish.

Christina Fredengren
Associate Professor from the Department of Archaeology and Classical Studies, her research fields are within archaeology, heritage studies, curatorship, gender theory and the environmental humanities.

Cullberg is the national and international repertoire contemporary dance company in Sweden, founded in 1967. The core of the company consists of 17 extraordinary individual dancers, co-creators in the artistic process. To explore ideas on how dance can be defined, produced and presented are the pillars of a company that is constantly in motion at the heart of the international arena.
