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.
Julie Østengaard
January 7th - January 26th
In the current sound-based work, a kinetic sound sculpture is creating acoustic sound through movement of its own material derived from motorized and disorganized movements originated in the acoustic material itself. It interacts with electronic sound in a live performance. 'Con/current' is an interchanging sound piece that blends virtual and physical sound in a virtual and physical space. The work is part of the Make Sound Residency, which will end with a public presentation.
Tian Rotteveel
January 7th - January 16th
‘Breathtaking’ explores an erratic wondering music-making body. Following a performer's private relation to all that makes sound. Finding specific sounding materiality along the way and organizing its frequencies and distribute it into a room, creating a listening effect. Whether breath, gesture, voice, or any sound-making resources, everything what feels useful to the performer to create sonic happenings in the room, but as well to understand what the next thing is to do.
trapped in bio
Signe Boe
January 7th - January 26th
The project ‘trapped in bio’ is an interdisciplinary project including film, literature, forensic linguistics, image scan technologies and sculpture. With the starting point in a redacted detective file, Signe Boe is questioning how to write about someone without enclosing them in a description. During the residency, Signe Boe will be conducting video- and sound recordings that will become part of an interactive publication, where new digital technologies connect printed matter with film.

Tim Bishop
January 28th - January 28th
Blackout is a unique, immersive, new performance work for one person at a time by artist Tim Bishop. The work takes place in complete darkness and uses spatial audio and haptic feedback to create a multi-sensory and evocative environment for a powerfully self-reflective experience. A voice and physical guide encourage participants on an introspective journey without visual stimuli. The work uses sound, touch and interaction to engage with perceptions of physical and virtual contexts, and to reflect on each participant's own unique presence in the universe.
Elisabete Finger, Manuela Eichner
IASPIS residency
December 1st - February 29th
Elisabete Finger (choreographer) and Manuela Eichner (visual artist) work together since 2015 mixing techniques and principles from choreography and collage. Their research evokes a certain “political ecology of things and people”, proposing other logics and organizations for this ensemble. Their artworks problematize the certainties and contradictions of what is generally taken as organic and artificial, natural and cultural.
Speculative Materialism
Lou Mouw
November 30th - January 31st
Västra Hamnen could be seen as a perfect mirror of recent economical and societal developments. By its shift from an industrial area with the Kockums Kranen as the symbol of the city’s blue collars roots, to the most exclusive neighbourhood of the city, and with it the Turning Torso skyscraper as the new symbol of this change of identity and economy of the city. Hereby the main question is what the shift of these two landmarks tells about the urban, socio-political and economical shift in a post-welfare state environment...

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.

Brewer & Blennow
and 365 days
November 11th - November 15th
Working in the field of performance and contemporary dance, Sanna Blennow & Elise Brewer incorporate sound in their movement practice as a way to think around and create dance and performance from another angle. By developing and executing exercises where they drain our vocabulary of words, investigating the connection between gestures and spoken word, they are scattering, shifting and peeling off what makes sense in a speaking and communicative body. This creates a playground where fantasy is invited, and also where new ideas can expand and unfold.
Critical Dialogs
A Contemporary Art Podcast
June 15th - December 31st
