Artistic Research Processes at Konstnärshuset (Stockholm) I

art, recent work


The booming interest for artistic research is, I think, a shift of focus from result to process. When ‘art’ – in some contexts – has become synonymous with ‘investment’… and in others, primarily an act of provocation… the processual aspect along with reflexivity, and the intention to make a positive contribution, is well communicated within the framework of artistic research.
Would you agree?

Exhibition open today and tomorrow, 12 – 18, at Konstnärshuset (House of Artists), Smålandsgatan 7, Stockholm.

For Swedish speakers, here’s a series of interviews on some of the projects and the idea of establishing an independent platform for artistic research; six short films made by Art Lab Gnesta and nigo produktion:

Konstnärshuset, Stockholm – a somewhat tattered gem of a building from 1899, housing two artists’ associations – is next stop. Here, the Konstfack course projects are represented in the traditional exhibition format, focusing less on process and more on artistic achievements. A seminar with artist talks and a lecture by artist and PhD Emma Göransson complements the exhibition.
