Beredskapsarbetaren
Ellinor Ingvar-Henschen, Joachim Saxenborn, Johan Svansjö, Hillevi Hillerud, Jonatan Sersam, Niklas Hansson
29 November 2020 - 6 December 2020
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.
Öresund Collegium for Artistic Research
Esa Kirkkopelto, Kent Sjöström, Sven Bjerstedt, Jörgen Dahlqvist, Eva Sæther, and many others
21 September 2020 - 31 December 2020
The Öresund Collegium for Artistic Research aims to develop collaborations with researchers, artists and their respective institutions in the Öresund region. Its point of departure resides in the fertile and versatile artistic and academic culture prevailing in the area: the three academies of the Faculty of Fine and Performing Arts, the other faculties of LU, the neighbouring universities on both sides of the Öresund, as well as a plethora of local artistic, cultural, social and ecological agents.
Transmediating meaning
Janneke Schoene
1 September 2020 - 31 December 2020
‘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.
Instrumental Bodies / Make Sound Residency
Lars Kynde, Soeine Bac
9 November 2020 - 4 December 2020
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.
Changing soundscapes
Jonna Hägg
1 January 2020 - 31 December 2020
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.
An Image of What You See
Lena Bergendahl
1 December 2019 - 30 November 2020
‘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.
Critical Dialogs
Christine Antaya, Matthew Rana
15 June 2019 - 31 December 2020
‘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.
Halla Steinunn Stefánsdóttir
Halla Steinunn Stefánsdóttir
1 August 2015 - 31 August 2021
Halla Steinunn Stefánsdóttir has been the artistic director of Nordic Affect since its inception in 2005. Believing that the exciting things happen "in the connection" Halla Steinunn’s work with the ensemble has been a tour de force when it comes to collaborative relationships with composers, visual artists, and producers. Furthermore she’s brought the spotlight to women’s role in music history, leading to projects such as HÚN/SHE which was broadcast by the European Broadcasting Service in 2015.

With degrees from The Royal Danish Academy of Music and Indiana University School of Music, Halla Steinunn now holds a PhD position in artistic research at Lund University, in a time where the divide between creator and performer is being questioned in theoretical writings and in practice.
