Exhibition prolonged: Hanni Kamaly, THE MIGHT THEY HAVE, extended until 18 July
Hanni Kamaly’s exhibition THE MIGHT THEY HAVE has been extended and will now be on view until Sunday 18 July, when Index closes for summer.

Over midsummer, Index closes its door Thur 24 – Sun 27 June. During this time, Kamaly alters the exhibition and adds further sculptural work, creating a shift in the relation between objects, characters and subjects in space. From Thursday 1 July, the exhibition opens again, as THE MIGHT THEY HAVE (NEVER UNDONE) until Sunday 18 July.

 Index is pleased to announce an extra date in Hanni Kamaly’s series of performative walks Passages, produced in collaboration with Stockholms Kvinnohistoriska (Stockholm Museum of Women’s History) as part of the initiative Utom Husen. The walk will take place on Sunday 20 June.

 Please note that Index will be closed for a week over midsummer, Thursday 24 – Sunday 27. Index is otherwise open during usual opening hours. These are:

Thu / Fri: 12:00-18:00
Sat / Sun: 12:00-16:00

 In May, Index hosted the slow release of Silon volume one – a collection of readings by curators, artists and architects on decolonizing the white cube, exploring questions around education and land and a meditation that brings feminine awareness to the complex phenomena and philosophy of Frantz Fanon. During the evening, we recorded conversations between the collaborators, and now released as a podcast. Texts from the publication have been selected and read by Ella Saar and Martina Sara D’Alessio.

Silon is a production of The Mirror Institution which seeks to mirror, reflect and expand ideas and programs of existing art institutions. The Mirror Institution is an initiative of curator Joanna Sandell, journalist Steuart Wright with architecture by Tor Lindstrand.

In January, Index, together with PRAKSIS in Oslo and our respective Teen Advisory Boards, hosted a Conference in Character. It was part of a broader project, began in 2020, which looks at how we are expected to behave in arts spaces – considering the language, policies and structures that underpin these norms. Now, see what’s new and the workshops we’re exploring in the creation of the Game Manual! Through our shared In Character website, PRAKSIS and Index track explorations into how the use of fiction, radical imagination and role-play can help us propose new ways of going to an exhibition.
