MKP at CICO in Mexico City

MKP (Tomorrow’s Art Audiences) has been working with students at CICO (Center for Choregraphic Investigation) in Mexico City in January. Together they have been developing new formats for the integration methods from contemporary visual art into education in dance and Choreography. The visit is supported by Helge Ax:son Johnsons stiftelse, Stockholm stad and the Swedish Arts Coun


EEGsynth Receives Grant

We are very happy to announce that our partner in developing the EEGsynth, Vision Forum has been rewarded a considerable Kulturbryggan grant. With this grant we will together develop ways to fuse musicians’ brains, furthering our interdisciplinary research in brain-synthesis. Specifically, we will create ways for people to “jam” together, by connecting their EEG to sound equipment. It will allow anyone with a brain – irrespective of clumsy hands, or any hands at all – to use their brain as an instrument and learn to communicate in non-verbal way through sound and musical. Stay tuned for more!


1+1=3 in Uppsala

At the finissage for the exhibition “Inget att se h√§r!” Jean-Louis Huhta will present magnetoencephalography (MEG) recording made using 306 sensors that picked up his brain’s magnetic activity, while he was falling asleep. The recording was done by neuroscientist Stephen Whitmarsh, who then analyzed oscillatory activity in several frequency bands (theta, alpha and beta), reflecting shifts in Huhta’s focus, attention and relaxation. Jean-Louis will use open-source software and hardware to transform these fluctuations of brain activity into control voltages, which he will use to control his modular synthesizer.

Curatorial Mutiny gets support for Nordic Tour

Curatorial is proud to announce that the Nordic Culture Fund supports our project "The Boundaries of Death Challenged." The project is a platform to bring together music and visual art from Haiti and the Nordic countries to reflect on how human mortality informs our every day existence.

Together the artists (Jean-Claude Saintilus, Jean-louis Huhta, Per Huttner) will develop a collaborative performance that brings together two distinct and opposing cosmologies: On the one hand, the secular, scientific Nordic tradition that sees death as the end and the Haitian vision where the boundaries between the living and the dead remain porous (The dead “live” among as humans and voodoo artists like Jean-Claude Saintilus interact with them on a daily basis.)

The artists will create a performance together during a two-week residency in Kirkenes that reflects on these questions. They will continue to develop it as they travel through Norway, Sweden, Finland and Denmark integrating traces of the research as well as knowledge acquired along the way. They will use modular synthesizers, percussion, acoustic instruments, voice and video projections in the process. Along the tour, the will invite a series local of guests who will contribute to the performances.

The journey will give them a better understanding how the two perspectives on death and what can be learned from them. The project also offers new insights into how inter-cultural and interdisciplinary dialogues can support tolerance as well as offer depth in our daily lives.

The performances will be presented in two forms:
- Clubs, museums and concert halls in the visited cities.
- In public spaces including old burial places, disused execution places and other spaces where mankind is confronted with its mortality.


OuUnPo returns to Japan

Following up on the successful session in Tokyo and Yokohama members of OuUnPo travel to Japan to create a publication. The book is related to the use of body and its imagination in books and the culture of Japan. It connects to the topic of catastrophe and heritage that OuUnPo investigated in the Japanese session as well as in Beirut, Sao Paulo and Gibellina. The questions will further developed in the publication.
