Why look at still life? Constructing animal biographies in Gothenburg Natural History Museum

Based on a study of four naturalized mammals, a gorilla, a Tonkean macaque, a walrus, and an African elephant, Liv Emma Thorsen, professor emerita in culture history / ethnology, will discuss the collections of a natural history museum as a resource for humanistic research. Displayed as didactic and seemingly timeless objects of nature, other and less accessible parts of the collections of Gothenburg Natural History Museum offer entrances to spoor the animals’ biographies.

The lecture will be held in English.

Ethnic Intimacies: A small history of racial artefacts in the home

This lecture explores how European art and design historically participated have in the colonial project (domination, bias, separation) through the production of images, signs and artefacts that stage racial prejudices and fantasies at home. As a reflective provocation that seeks to probe our laziness and complicity with inherited stereotypes, the discussion ultimately asks whether it is possible and also whether we are ready to decolonise aesthetics as it relates to the designed things in our everyday lives. 

Temi Odumosu is an art historian, creative educator, and postdoctoral researcher for the Living Archives Research Project at Malmö University. 

The lecture will be held in English.

Untying the Knots: Relational Art and the Meetings of Species

In this lecture Bryndís Snæbjörnsdóttir, Professor at the Icelandic Academy of Arts, will focus on selected projects from her art collaboration with the artist Mark Wilson. Human and animal encounters have been central to the thinking and development of their artworks both formally and conceptually. Their conception of the term ‘individualization’ and the artistic methods applied will be explored in relation to these projects which cover over 15 years of commitment to art research in this the field.
