The Sweetness of Living Art Symposium - Part 1
Det gode liv // The Sweetness of Living is an ongoing networking, knowledge exchange, and experience-sharing artistic research and contemporary art process. Beginning through a symposium format in 2021, with inspiration from Matt Hern and Am Johal’s 2018 publication Global Warming and the Sweetness of Life: A Tar Sands Tale, the process continues in 2022 on Friday 25 and Saturday 26. February.

This time the focus is on communities, and the knowledges, structures, and relations that form and emerge through both their continuities and their continual processes of re-configuration.

Friday 25. February 15:00 - 17:00 CET

Irina Shirobokova: Exploring Queer Potentialities of Darkness - a multivocal lecture on modern marginality in the North. Stemming from an involved research process using collective writing as a community engagement method, the lecture shares some of the research insights found throughout the process + Q&A
