Curating Art: In Memoriam/In Futurum

Event

Date: Wednesday 1 September 2021

Time: 18.00 – 20.00

Location: Accelerator and Online

The project "In Memoriam/In Futurum: Reflecting on interdisciplinary practices" is presented in connection to the exhibition The Experimental Field and is a collaboration with the International Master’s Programme in Curating, including Art, Management and Law, at the Department och Culture and Aestethics.

The interdisciplinary project In Memoriam/In Futurum was initiated by students from the International Master’s Programme in Curating, including Art, Management and Law, in collaboration with artists studying at the Royal Institute of Art and student researchers from different departments at Stockholm University, the Royal Institute of Technology, and Stockholm University of the Arts.

Inspired by the questions raised by The Experimental Field, the project took experimentation as a starting point, as a loaded tension between past, future and present. It enabled collaborations between students across different fields, taking advantage of studying as an exploratory, liminal state.

Curators and artists were paired with different researchers according to interests, forming eight clusters that met throughout the spring of 2021 for experimental activities, resulting in the creation of eight zines.
The evening will consist of a presentation of In Memoriam/In Futurum, giving space to participants in each cluster to discuss and reflect upon their collaborative processes, focusing on the possibilities and challenges of interdisciplinary practices. The talk will be followed by a 30-minute Q&A session.
