Of Specter – or Returns. A seminar on haptic visuality, the archive, translation, and artistic research.
Jane Jin Kaisen, Marianne Ping Huang, Arine Kirstein Høgel, Sarat Maharaj, Gertrud Sandqvist and Christian Skovbjerg Jensen.
Location: Red room

What haunts? And what would it mean to approach the politics of memory from the position of ghosts? To inherit them, to pay them heed, do them justice? These are questions that visual artist Jane Jin Kaisen engages in her solo exhibition Of Specters – or Returns when inquiring into unfinished transnational histories that reverberate in the present moment. The exhibition brings together Kaisen’s evocative 7-channel video installation Reiterations of Dissent that was awarded the Montana ENTERPRIZE in 2011 with her new project Of Specters – or Returns.

13-14: The exhibition is open. (third floor)

14-17: Seminar with presentations by Jane Jin Kaisen, Marianne Ping Huang, Arine Kirstein Høgel, Sarat Maharaj and Gertrud Sandqvist. Moderated by Christian Skovbjerg Jensen. Subsequently, there will be time for questions and discussion and a coffee break will be held along the way.
