Ulla Wiggen in conversation with Mats Stjernstedt

Saturday April 30
12:00
Market Art Fair

Language: Swedish

Ulla Wiggen is an artist and psychotherapist. In the spring of 2022, she will participate in the main exhibition at the Venice Biennale, and in exhibitions at the Centre Pompidou, Paris and Kunstverein Hamburg. In the 1960s, Wiggen became interested in electronic components creating motifs assembled from the internal parts of machines and with a focus on the visual qualities of the components. In recent years, this early artistic activity has attracted increasing interest and appreciation.

In a conversation with Mats Stjernstedt, director of Malmö Konsthall, where Wiggen is currently present in the exhibition "Åke Hodell - Motstånd". The discussion will centre on her early work, the importance of portraiture and her new world of motifs: slow, methodical observations of the internal systems of the human body, with an emphasis on the brain and the iris of the eye.

 

Participants: Ulla Wiggen (Artist) and Mats Stjernstedt (Director, Malmö Konsthall)

Art in the age of climate apocalypse

Sunday May 1
12:00
Market Art Fair

Language: Swedish

A conversation exploring the art world’s urgent need for change to ensure a sustainable future for people and planet.

Climate change and ecological collapse present tomorrow's fastest accelerating apocalypse, one which will impact every area of our lives. In recent years the art world has turned its attention to addressing the climate crisis, and increasingly artists, curators and researchers have raised the alarm calling for urgent action and change across the art world’s practices. Despite this heightened focus, urgent questions still linger: what is to be done and how fast? Is it possible to achieve the massive change necessary, and what are the paths going forward?

 

Participants: Ylva Hillström (Writer and curator, Moderna Museet Stockholm, where she has led projects on art and sustainability, such as Acclimatize), Linda Tedsdotter (Artist, working with sustainability. Her current work Apocalypse Insurance is based on threats to humanity, including climate change) Tinni Ernsjöö Rappe (Executive Director Art Initiative, Stockholm School of Economics, previously at Mistra Centre for Sustainable Markets with the connection of climate change, sustainability and artistic interventions)

Moderator: Robert Stasinski (Editor-In-Chief at Konstnären Magazine)
