Instrumental Bodies / Make Sound Residency
Lars Kynde, Soeine Bac
November 9th - December 4th
Danish composer and inventor Lars Kynde and Canadian visual artist and dancer Soeine Bac meet in the Make Sound residency to explore their shared interest in integration of sound and movement. They will together transform the space into a large mechanical acoustic instrument-body of strings and steel, which Soeine Bac will explore in relation to her own body by dancing inside it and altering the timbres with her body weight.

one-act opera
November 29th - December 6th
The opera company Alltet performs the newly written one-act opera Beredskapsarbetaren. The performance is based on what is known as Sweden’s biggest serial murder, which took place in 1979 at Östra Hospital in Malmö. At that time, an 18-year-old emergency worker poisoned 25 patients in elderly care with disinfectants.

Passing Through
Conducting waves, space and matter
December 7th - December 20th
‘Passing Through’ is a sound installation project that reflects upon the way waves of energy and signals move through and around space and matter. Inspired by her ongoing work with sonification of electromagnetic waves from radio, telephone and Wi-Fi signals, Camille Roth will explore concepts of barriers, connections, interfaces and conducting materials, that shape the way that information flows.

Red Plague / Make Sound Residency
Julie Nymann and Signe Raunkjær Holm
December 7th - December 20th
‘Red Plague’ (working title) explores the displacement between a live performance and the echo thereof. The title refers to the social phenomenon of ‘dancing epidemics’, especially the incident in 1518 which came to be known as the ‘Dancing Plague of Strasbourg’. This epidemic started when one woman came out of her house and suddenly started dancing, and several hundreds of people joined in.

Öresund Collegium for Artistic Research
Artistic Research at Malmö Theatre Academy

The Öresund Collegium for Artistic Research aims to develop collaborations with researchers, artists and their respective institutions in the Öresund region.

Critical Dialogs
A Contemporary Art Podcast
June 15th - December 31st
‘Critical Dialogs’ is a contemporary art podcast that will investigate the latent potential of the podcast format to support critical dialogue and innovative forms of art criticism. ‘Critical Dialogs’ will explore emergent approaches to and forms for art criticism that are enabled by today’s media landscape and changing public sphere. Pilot episodes will take the form of conversations among professional art critics on topical issues such as decolonizing/queering art criticism, and the ethics of critique.

From Soul to Other
Martine Flor
September 1st - November 28th
This project seeks to investigate technology and its influence on reading and narration in the construction of a coherent and autonomous self. Departing from a Lacanian understanding of language, it seeks to trace the impact of a digital Other on subjectivation: what would the impact of a digital Other completely indifferent of its subjects be? An Other that lacks what is fundamentally human, such as temporality, death and empathy? An Other that repeals the distance between self and market necessary for critical judgment?

Transmediating meaning
Audio guides for visually impaired visitors in art museums
September 1st - December 31st
‘Transmediating meaning’ analyses audio guides as complex transmedial formats with multiple media shifts: Visual objects, sculptures, paintings, etc., are translated into spoken text whose characteristics, perceptions and readings differ from the ‘original’. An examination of these differences is crucial for the democratic application of audio guides for different visitor groups such as visually impaired visitors that are widely excluded from the art discourse.
