Ndikhumbule Ngqinambi
Ndikhumbule Ngqinambi
8 February 2017 - 13 April 2017
Ndikhumbule Nqginambi is holding a IASPIS grant as the guest of Malmö Art Academy, February to April.

Ndikhumbule Ngqinambi’s dazzling landscapes are restless beings.They seem to rumble with the weight of a charging army, or the resonance of a thunderous sky. They are things in motion, the gestures captured within them always moving, departed but not yet arrived, running and tumbling in a vast no man’s land between past and present, dreams and reality, promises and disappointments.
WeLog
Lovisa Perman, Robin N Spegel, Annelie Horáková Eriksson
13 February 2017 - 3 April 2017
WeLog is a project created by Lovisa Perman, Robin N Spegel and Annelie Horáková Eriksson. It explores how to make performing arts available for an audience through both a physical experience and an online-experience at the same time. Our performance explores the theme of identity through different perspectives, packaged in three episodes, 30 minutes long each. The episodes are live edited and live streamed to youtube in the form of v-logs (video blogs).
Chorus
Rune Søchting, Kristoffer Akselbo
1 March 2017 - 31 March 2017
Chorus is a process-based artwork that includes elements of performance and installation. The project explores an idea of the statue as a social and processual phenomenon determined by the individuals that relate to it.

The project presents different voices that are oriented towards the statue as a possibility. Among them is a choir similar to the one found in the antique tragic drama. Through an ongoing work at the IAC the project aims to develop an impersonal voice of a contemporary choir and through that a possible statue.

The project concludes with an event on March 31, but one can encounter elements of the artwork throughout the project period at the IAC.
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.
Intermedial conceptual loans
Sven Bjerstedt
1 July 2014 - 30 December 2017
The phenomenon of intermedial conceptual loans is central to our understanding of the time-based arts. In my master thesis (published at Malmö Academy of Music in 2010) I investigate how the concept 'musicality' is used as a prestige word in discourse on spoken theatre. It is entitled Att agera musikaliskt: musikalitet som norm och utbildningsmål i västerländsk talteater.
