Attention, Distraction and Detention

The configuration of spectatorship across the dark room, the white cube and the monkey island.
Considering how the inception of cinema occured in parallel to the institution of various forms of contact, control and observation of animals. "Attention, Distraction and Detention" will look at how the histories of the cinematic and zoological apparatuses have a common reliance on notions of spectacle, domestication, and experimentation, profoundly intertwining the notions of entertainment and science.

PROTEST!? workshop
Heidrun Holzfeind

discusses the possibilities and difficulties of art as an arena & medium for political protest and social engagement.

"…sometimes we must put our bodies where our beliefs are. Sometimes pressing send is not enough." Gloria Steinem, Women's March, Washington D.C.

How do we react to the increasing collapse of the social state, the rise of populism and right wing parties, restrictive immigration policies, violence against immigrants, minorities, women, the curtailing of our privacy? How to advance women and LGBT rights, environmental issues etc.? Which social issues do we as artists address? How do we respond to, engage in and capture dissent? What is our public role, our relation to and engagement in our communities?

"If art isn't allowed to address and transform the conditions of real life, I don't see the point of it." Adrian Piper

We will look at how artists (such as Adrian Piper, Coco Fusco, The Yes Men, Christoph Schlingensief etc.) have voiced and visualized critique and staged protests in the past and present, in and outside the white cube; how artists use historic material to question our present social & political engagement. We will discuss strategies and experiment with using text, collage and photography as tools for politically and socially engaged work. We will also talk about the importance of using photography (and video) to properly document performances and actions. We can make flyers, stickers, posters or organize our own demonstration in the city - Act! Play! Subvert! Perform! Collaborate!

The workshop includes a guest lecture by Erik Persson about the history of protest and social movements in Umeå as well as a guided tour by Johannes Samuelsson through his exhibition at the Västerbotten museum (open to everyone !)
