Abstract:

  • Panel: Mind the Gap

    This the­matic art pro­ject in a sub­urb of Stock­holm is a means to gen­er­ate prob­lem areas in focus for a re­search pro­ject on mul­ti­modal com­mu­ni­ca­tion and de­mo­c­ra­tic de­ci­sion-mak­ing at Stock­holm Uni­ver­sity. Artists’ ac­tions, in­stal­la­tions and me­di­a­tions cre­ate a di­rect con­fronta­tion with the place and its in­hab­i­tants, and ex­plore the dy­namic global & local re­la­tion­ships that con­sti­tute its con­text. The art pro­ject is a col­lab­o­ra­tive process where no­tions of democ­racy are ex­am­ined in order to in­ves­ti­gate, ex­pose, en­hance and / or re­model re­la­tions of the site.
