In light of the current situation where an increasingly heated political climate is shaping the rhetoric and discussion concerning migrants and refugees - we wish to investigate the agency of art and artists working with these matters or within related fields.
The symposium Blind Spots will explore a number of different artistic practices operating in a social and political context over two days. In order to expand the critical perspectives, practitioners and institutions in the Oresund region as well as transnational agents are invited to contribute with their perspectives in relation to art and migration. The focus will be on questions concerning inclusion/exclusion, activism/art, empowerment/representation and the artist's role when working in political contexts. The symposium is also an opportunity to meet and exchange ideas with practitioners in the field of art dealing with migration through different approaches.
The symposium is organized by Woodpecker Projects and artist Maj Hasager in collaboration with Inter Arts Center (IAC), Malmö and Malmö Konstmuseum.
