Artistic practice beyond institutions

In this conversation visual artist Lisa Nyberg and choreographer Carolina Bäckman take a closer look at how we research within the arts and might conduct artistic practice beyond institutions. With each of their artistic practices as starting point they will reflect upon how art can suggest new ways of writing history and share knowledge.  

This Conversation On will be held in English.
