The role of Space in a Project

An ABC research Colloquia on the tangible terms of art

Date: Monday, April 23, NOTE! The conversation is held in Swedish.

Time: 15-17

Location: The Rotunda School of Economics, Sveavägen 65

Culture producer and agent Margareta Petersson talks with director Jonna Nordenskiöld and artist Jenny Wiklund about the importance of Space and Rooms when an artwork grows. Ordinary work organization, if there is any such thing, seems to be eliminated in an art context. Nevertheless, art supplies a variety of events at least as punctually as other industrial processes. But how do you cooperate; for example, what does the dramaturg and director have in common with the artist and the architect? How to develop into an artist? When, where, how do they start their way into the artistry? How do you get an idea of your idea or is the compromise a necessity for implementation? And why is the room so important in artistic processes? Do we forget the Room in other types of projects?

The architect, the dramaturg, the researcher and the director has the room in common; but what does it mean to them is the room necessary for the work, the work and its presentation?
