Studio grant holder in Malmö 20 June – 20 September 2021
Sebastian Moske. Born 1984 in Stade, Germany. Lives and works in Berlin, Germany.
In my artistic practice I work with the Western literary canon as an archive of emotions and a possible psychological template. Text-collages of cut-up lines become the base for performative interpretations. Video-images are shot at locations in the city I visit relating to the texts; used as stages for narrative investigations.

During my residency, I will focus on the Swedish literary canon while discovering the city of Malmö. Whereby I’m very interested in the history of the 20th century, the construction of the Welfare State and the literary traditions concerning crimes.
On 24th/25th of September I will show the video »I myth you« for Gallery Night Malmö in C-Sal at Malmö Konsthall.
The video is in collaboration with Mary-Anne Buyondo, Hans Carlsson, Saga Gärde and Yasmine El-Baramawy and will be the first of two videos dealing with my time in the city, with questions around community and society. And the pleasure of narrative thrills.
