Knowledge Production

Museum of Impossible Forms,
Kontula Shopping Centre, Keinulaudankuja 4 E, 2nd floor, lk 21, Helsinki

Welcome to join us for the next CuMMA DS with Ayse Güleç at Museum of Impossible Forms!

In her contribution Ayse Güleç would like to reflect on how ‘practice-based research’ can work as collective knowledge production in activist-artistic contexts through solidarity, cooperative and performative gestures and acts.
Güleç will take a look at the concrete example of the ‘Society of Friends of Halit’, a group of local and international activists and artists, who together with his family, commemorate the life and death of Halit Yozgat and concurrently, all victims of the NSU (National Socialist Underground).

Talk with Osei Bonsu
The Economy of Living Things

17th of October 2017, 18:00
Museum of Impossible Forms,
Kontula Shopping Centre, Keinulaudankuja 4 E, 2nd floor, lk 21, Helsinki

Welcome to this autumn’s first CuMMA DS lecture on the 17th of October!
Presenting his research project “The Economy of Living Things”, London-based curator and writer Osei Bonsu will draw upon fields of visual art, archaeology, music and literature to reveal an alternative map of modern migrations. Taking as point of departure the emergence of video art as a new frontier of documentary form, “The Economy of Living Things” is concerned with how artists capture the constant flow of bodies and the movements of plants, animals, artefact and other cultural products across real and imagined borders.
