RISK(U) #6: Cultural hegemonies and third culture kids
NKF is pleased to have Karina Sarkissova visiting for a Covid-19 safe working session the 16th to 22nd November 2020
Watch the result from Karina's work here.
Karina Sarkissova will make a video at the Nordiska Gästateljén Malongen to process and present her thesis research; studies around north-western Europe and contemporary symmetries of artistic production. Through Donna Haraways situated knowledges into Sara Ahmeds performatives and non-performatives, to artistic references like Erik Lundin, This is Sweden and Ceylan Öztrük creates a lens of artistic production and subjects that are examplifying procedures of discussing art and society today. Karinas artistic interest lies in performances and other artworks that are positioning themselves in relation to a northwestern, white european cultural hegemony.
Guests will join Karina to discuss the topics and themes that the lecture is presenting. Video and framing by Ana Barata Martins. A video will be made of the discussions to be shared after the stay.
