As part of the Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma’s Edge of Europe’s experimental project, head of education at Dramatiska Institutet in Stockholm Ylva Gislén will give a keynote speech on how knowledge is created and distributed in society. The idea behind the project is to discover new ways to mediate knowledge via art and digital media.
Gislén will discuss the underlying assumptions in the construction of knowledge, power and “valid knowers” as well as point at contradictions, basis for productive awareness and ethical and aesthetical counter strategies within artistic knowledge production.
Edge of Europe, designed and co-ordinated by artist Maija Hirvanen and funded by the Nordic Culture Point is part of Kiasma Theatre’s programme.
“What does it mean to be in the geographical edge of Europe? How do artists connect in this part of the world? Questions of the kind were the starting point and previous discussion before the four months’ development of the project,” explains Hirvanen.
is held on 21 March
from 15:00 to 17:00
at Kiasma Seminar Room.
