Lina Selander + Mija Renström

Lina Selander (13:00-14:30)

“I will talk about my methods in working with archive based films and installations, discussing several works shown in my solo exhibition at Göteborgs Konsthall. My work often focuses on junctures in history where a system or physical place collapses and something new begins to emerge. My works revolve around images as memories, imprints and representations.”

Lina Selander will talk in English.

Mija Renström (15:00-16:30)

Mija Renström, curator of education at Göteborgs Konsthall, will talk on the development of an educational program when going in into collaboration with exhibition artists, curators and art gallery's staff.

Soviet Critical Design at Senezh studio 1964-1992

In this talk, Tom Cubbin, senior lecturer in Design Studies at HDK, looks at the history of the Experimental and Educational Studio of the Soviet Union of Artists, that were established in response to deficiencies in mainstream design practice that was seen as overly technocratic and ideologically flawed. At an artists retreat by Senezh lake near Moscow, designers produced work in an attempt to challenge normative ways of thinking about design, architecture, and culture more broadly. Through the production of utopian alternatives to the status quo, Senezh designers were instrumental in the development of a critical discourse within Soviet design.
