Symposium with Iaspis studio grant holders Mari Bastashevski and Reynold Reynolds at Umeå Academy of Fine Arts

2017-11-24
Post-911 Society. Public symposium at Umeå Academy of Fine Arts, November 27.

On Monday, November 27, Umeå Academy of Fine Arts organises a one-day symposium titled Post-911 Society, featuring Mari Bastashevski (DK/CHI/RU), Jacob Lillemose (DK), Reynold Reynolds (USA), and Christoph Draeger (CH). The symposium discusses issues and topics raised by the video The Last News such as: the role of the media within the terrorism complex; the correlation between religion, fanaticism and radicalisation, state surveillance and increasing public security versus individual freedom.

The symposium is part of and will be followed by a 4-day workshop* by Reynold Reynolds that is addressing the question of how can we as artists reclaim the realm of the automated image, as in public surveillance? How can we turn the camera around and re-appropriate the images that are taken from us?
