Easter Opening Hours
Index is open during the Easter long weekend! Why not take a walk by Kungsbrostrand and visit the bookshop and the exhibition Editorial Thinking.

We are open for visitors 12:00–16:00 on Thu 1, Fri 2, Sat 3, Sun 4 April.

Throughout the rest of April (until Sun 18), opening hours are Thu / Fri 12:00–18:00 and
Sat / Sun 12:00–16:00. Index prioritizes the safety of everybody in our space with increased cleaning routines in place. Visitor numbers are always closely monitored and limited as necessary to ensure safe distance.

 On the occasion of the exhibition Editorial Thinking at Index, OEI magazine organizes a two-day event, inviting artists, editors, publishers, writers, and scholars to reflect on the notion of “editorial thinking” in relation to their different practices.

Each day will comprise two sessions and will be live streamed via Index’ Twitch channel. Guests include Alice Centamore and Pierre Paulin, Michalis Pichler, Nils Olsson, Sezgin Boynik, Lytle Shaw, Axel Andersson, together with OEI’s editors Cecilia Grönberg and Jonas (J) Magnusson.

 Not All of Me Will Die is David’s latest novella, which reflects on memory, writing, and the desire of posterity. During this performance, David will dictate it to an audience. This ‘oral novella’ exists as an original manuscript that, after being dictated to the participants, becomes in this way published and distributed in as many copies as participants take part of the performance. At the end, each participant will have acquired their own handwritten copy, both unique and equal to the others at the same time. Each participant will receive a blank book to write in. If you wish to participate, please RSVP to rsvp@indexfoundation.se

You can bring your favourite pen with you.

 Last week, and while Alex Reynolds’ work But They Are Not You is presented at Index, the artist met with Magdalena Malm online to discuss their collaboration around this project. Realized in Stockholm during the winter of 2011/12, the project began with an email invitation circulated by MAP (Mobile Art Production) founded by Magdalena Malm. After an extensive process, Alex Reynolds selected a small number of the final participants who then were to become protagonists and also the very exclusive recipients of work. Now their discussion about the process becomes a podcast.

 Index’ next exhibition is THE MIGHT THEY HAVE, a solo presentation of works by Hanni Kamaly. Hanni Kamaly’s artistic practice includes sculpture, film and performance. In various ways, her works trace and make visible the effects of racism and colonialism in our own time, often portraying how people have been deprived of their voice, humanity and space for action. At the center of Kamaly’s investigations is the human body, both as the home of the subject and the projection surface for cultural norms and power structures.
