Ongoing Exhibition and Events Program: John Skoog and Emanuel Röhss, Mad Horizon

 Digital photography is a distributed form. In recent decades, photography as a technology has undergone a series of transformative changes, which have, in turn, entailed different renegotiations of the functions of photography. Within the framework of such a radical shift, Cecilia Grönberg’s text, published as a dissertation in photography, insists on probing into and exploring the persisting effects of analogue photographs within digital ecologies. “Händelsehorisont. Distribuerad fotografi” will be presented by Cecilia Grönberg, with interventions by and discussions with Emma Kihl, Johan Redin, Jonas (J) Magnusson and Niclas Östlind. The book is published as the first book in OEI editörs new series “OEI books”. The event is in Swedish.

 The event HOW TO DO POLITICS WITH AESTHETICS. RETHINKING 100 YEARS OF PETER WEISS examines how the works and ideas of Peter Weiss might be continued and actualized today. What is the status of the relationship between art and politics in contemporary political and social contexts? The event presents discussions with international experts, together with a program of short films. With Alex Gerbaulet, Mareike Bernien, Nadja Weiss, Florian Wüst, Petra Bauer, Kim West, Stefan Jonsson. HOW TO DO POLITICS WITH AESTHETICS is a collaboration of Goethe Institute Sweden with Orionteatern and Index.

 Merchandise! Scenery! A playlist! A cigarette! Hekseskolen sets up shop as part of the events program for John Skoog and Emanuel Röhss’ exhibition MAD HORIZON, with Johanne Lykke Holm, Olga Ravn, Siri Areyuna Wilhelmsson and Hanna Stenman. Hekseskolan was started as an experimental writing school and reading group in 2015 in Copenhagen by Johanne Lykke Holm and Olga Ravn.

 John Skoog and Emanuel Röhss’ exhibition MAD HORIZON, the first major presentation of the artists in their native country Sweden, continues until 4 December. The exhibition is accompanied by a series of performances, film screenings, workshops and talks that explore central themes of the exhibition, such as the relationship of place and imagination, and the history of modern media.
