Talks in Town

Written by Art Editor

Even though some of the participants in Stockholm Art Week might be a bit tired from the bombastic closing party that took place at Alma last night, there are still great art experiences to be had around town.

Market Art Fair at Liljevalchs hosts no less than three interesting talks today on Sunday May 1 (all in Swedish):

Art in the age of climate apocalypse

”A conversation exploring the art world’s urgent need for change to ensure a sustainable future for people and planet. Climate change and ecological collapse present tomorrow's fastest accelerating apocalypse, one which will impact every area of our lives. In recent years the art world has turned its attention to addressing the climate crisis, and increasingly artists, curators and researchers have raised the alarm calling for urgent action and change across the art world’s practices. Despite this heightened focus, urgent questions still linger: what is to be done and how fast? Is it possible to achieve the massive change necessary, and what are the paths going forward?”

Participants: Ylva Hillström, Linda Tedsdotter, Tinni Ernsjöö Rappe
Moderator: Robert Stasinski

Stockholm School of Economics Art Division take-over: How can art in business education affect the academic environment and perception of art?

A conversation exploring the impact of embedding art in business education. Together with artist Bella Rune, Stockholm School of Economics students and faculty consider how the presence of art and artistic methods in business education at SSE affects the academic environment, enriching research and shaping the perception of art. Stockholm School of Economics Art Initiative explores and develops knowledge at the intersection between economy, the arts and humanities, producing art exhibitions and symposiums for researchers, students and the public, placing art at the heart of a knowledge-rich education for all.”
Participants: Jessica Backsell, Cecilia Parsberg, Emma Stenström, Bella Rune
Moderator: Students from Art Division, the student-run part of Stockholm School of Economics Art Initiative, part of the Student Association at SSE

C-print take-over: FAIR SPORTS

C-print’s Market Talks takeover asks us to reconsider the seemingly disparate themes of Sport and Art. They present a film programme and related panel discussion that explores the parallels and crossovers, raising thought-provoking questions about the performative, aesthetic and social aspects of these practices.

Participants: Sofia Runarsdotter, Emelie Carlén, Jasmin Daryani, Josefina Malmegård and “Mr Power Up! The Thunderbolt”.
Moderator: Ashik Zaman

No pre-registration is needed for the talks, but there is a limited number of seats available which will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
