Performing Arts Festival
March 5th - March 7th
Listen with your eyes and see with your ears. A three-day bash of dance, music and performance. Welcome to a festival indulging in deep, playfully obsessive attention: Choreographic works that are poems. Highly performative concerts. A dance that examines the body as a musical instrument. Another that is music for the eye. EAREYE is a festival that listens with its eyes and see with its ears, curated by choreographer Alma Söderberg.
Thousand Times Yes
experimental, feminist chamber opera
March 9th - March 15th
‘Thousand Times Yes’ is an international and intergenerational collaboration bringing together artists and musicians from Finland, Sweden and Denmark to explore the potential of cooperation and sharing in the form of a performance. It is a multidisciplinary dialogue that takes the shape of an experimental feminist chamber opera, inviting its participants to rethink the concept of Gesamtkunstwerk and its aesthetics, as well as the hierarchical and unequal traditions of the (performing) arts.
Creativities transcending boundaries
Research in creativity, within music and broader aspects
March 16th - March 20th
The project ”Creativities transcending boundaries” aims at mapping out current research in creativity, within music and broader aspects.

Critical Dialogs - A Contemporary Art Podcast
List of artists & researchers in 2019
Automatic Prophecies
Nils Ekman
November 20th - March 31st
The project will explore computer simulation, both as an artistic medium with the ability to generate complex forms and as a technology able to envision processes of becoming, revealing the creative potential of matter and energy. As simulation is used in scientific modeling to predict the development of real-world emergent phenomena and in engineering for design optimization, the project will look at how simulation is used both as a prophetic medium and as a sculptural tool.
An Image of What You See
Lena Bergendahl
December 1st - March 31st
‘An Image of What You See’, is an ongoing video project that reflects upon seeing, creating and mediating images through the perspectives of technology, economy, politics and geography. These questions are visualised through an interview with a director, talking about a film in the making. The project is an attempt to visualise the structure of technological mediation, where layer upon layer of information interact with each other.
Changing soundscapes
Jonna Hägg
January 1st - December 31st
During the last months Jonna Hägg has been listening and observing the soundscapes of different islands, recording a lot of sound from these places. At IAC she will continue processing the collected material, create new soundscapes inspired by her observations of how we no longer can differentiate between natural and manmade sound environments. “Natural” nature sounds and manmade sounds are always mixed together, wherever we are.
