SEA BODY INFRASTRUCTURE IMAGE

An Artistic Research Symposium curated by Suza Husse and Hulda Rós Guðnadóttir

In the frame of KEEP FROZEN Projects in collaboration with DISTRICT as part of The Many-Headed Hydra

22 Jan 2016 - 24 Jan 2016

The symposium SEA BODY INFRASTRUCTURE IMAGE originates in the artistic research project Keep Frozen developed by the artist Hulda Rós Guðnadóttir in Icelandic, Moroccan and North American harbor cities since 2010. An ongoing investigation into coastal cultures, transnational labor relationships and the movement of bodies, machines and commodities, Keep Frozen materializes at the intersection of the global fishing industry and neoliberal urban development. 

Gathering practitioners from artistic, curatorial and theoretical fields, a group of artworks and audience members, the three-day program of various figurations, including performances, conversations, a site visit, roundtables, video screenings and physical exercise, links current practices and discourses of arts-based research with thematic and topographic contexts of the project. 

22 – 24 January 2016
Kunstkraftwerk Leipzig
