WEDNESDAY 3 APRIL (Only for invited guests of Press and Professional Preview)

15.00 PERFORMANCE 

Belonging

Khin Thethtar Latt (MM)

Investigating various approaches and perceptions of migration in different societies, Khin Thethtar Latt is interested in the concept of belonging, and the curiosity in how to fit in new contexts and environments. Through interactive moments with the audience, she reflects on her own descent and searches for a place to belong.

Duration: 15 min. Location: Talks & Performance stage, 2nd floor

 

19.00 PERFORMANCE 

Parole Dentro 

Antonio Irre (IT)

Parole Dentro means ‘inner words’ – a project that focuses on exchange of the artist and the spectator. An imaginative portrait in words reflects on human interaction and attention towards the other. To break the lines that define artist or spectator, the audience is invited to create a work in tandem with the artist which they are both going to sign. However, the fate of the artwork is already decided: it will soon end up being crumbled or eaten.

The performance is being repeated several times and lasts 10–15 minutes for each person.

Durational. Location: Offstage / Café area, 2nd floor

 

21.00 PERFORMANCE 

2/2=1

Maria Kalaridi (GR)

Welcome to a revolutionary wedding-like performance.

Duration: 33 min. Location: Talks & Performance stage, 2nd floor

 

19.30 PERFORMANCE

A Slutty Bisexual

Vili von Nissinen (FI)

In his intimate and outspoken autobiographical queer performance, Vili von Nissinen engages in dialogue with memories, philosophy, sexual encounters and robbed texts. Relief can be found in politics, provocation and porn. Embarrassing and funny moments are combined with punk attitude and glitter. The show is challenging the form of performance art: it is a lecture and stand up at the same time. Cute animals included!

Duration: 45 min. Location: Talks & Performance stage, 2nd floor

FRIDAY 5 APRIL

12.00 TALK (in Swedish)

Vad gör staten för konstnären?

Konstfrämjandet

Den statliga utredningen ‘Konstnär – oavsett villkor?’ (SOU 2018:23) visar att Konsten är avgörande för innovation och samhällsutveckling. Utredningen visar också att ett av de största hoten är ekonomisk stress hos konstnärerna. Samhället vinner på konsten men ingen vill betala för den. Hur kan en statlig utredning förbättra konstnärens situation?

With: Ann-Christin Nykvist (särskild utredare för Konstnärspolitiska utredningen); 

Måns Wrange (konstnär och ledamot i Kulturrådets styrelse); Johanna Gustafsson Fürst (konstnär och lektor på Konstfack)

Moderator: Per Hasselberg, Konstfrämjandet

Duration: 1.5 h. Location: Talks & Performance stage, 2nd floor

 

14.00 PERFORMANCE

Klassik Krise

Puschan Mousavi Malvani (DE) Presented by Kunstverein Familie Montez

Duration: 20 min. Location: Talks & Performance stage, 2nd floor

 

15.00 PERFORMANCE

Hamartiology

Jakob Niedziela (SE)

The performance investigates the inheritance of collective trauma and its consequences for the coming generations of both victims and culprits. Interested in the concept of the original sin, the artist raises questions about inherited sins in families, traces of trauma that linger in your genes, and asks whether the unknowing body can show remorse. 

What family sins have you inherited? Is there a way to apologise for the actions committed by those who came before you? And who is owed that apology?

Duration: 1 h. Location: Talks & Performance stage, 2nd floor

 

17.00 PERFORMANCE - CANCELLED

exit the void

Jagoda Szmytka (DE/PL) Presented by Kunstverein Familie Montez

Duration: 22 min. Location: Talks & Performance stage, 2nd floor

Durational. Location: Offstage / Café area, 2nd floor

 

16.00 PERFORMANCE

Anatomy Studies

Oleksiy Zaitsev (UA)

Memory is the subject of impositing truth and ideology. Oleksiy Zaitsev uses three words “yesterday, now, tomorrow” as an allegory of constancy. Today is the mediator between past and future. Yesterday is the foundation and the shadow, which dissolves in time and forms a different interpretation and manipulation of social consciousness. The performance explores the impact of artists on the process of writing history, and what kind of impact this process has on society itself. It is an investigation which will come to its conclusion when the artist is exhausted.

Duration: 1 h. Location: Offstage / Inner yard, 1st floor

Om konsten att söka gestaltningsuppdrag 

Konstpool

Ragna Berlin, grundare av Konstpool, har utvecklat ett ansökningssystem som vill ge förbättrade förutsättningar till mer överblick, öppenhet och mångfald inom offentliga upphandlingar av konstnärliga gestaltningar. Hon tar upp frågeställningar kring att ansöka om gestaltningsuppdrag, för att väcka tankar och funderingar. Var hittar man uppdrag? Vilka uppdrag ska man söka? Hur gör man en bra ansökan? Hur presenterar man ett verk? Hur bedöms en ansökan? Ragna Berlin går igenom vad som är viktigt att tänka på, och exempel tittas närmare på tillsammans i grupper.

With: Ragna Berlin, Konstpool

Duration: 1 h. Location: Talks & Performance stage, 2nd floor

12.30 TALK (in English)

Commercial galleries and their role on the contemporary art market

Panel discussion

Commercial galleries have a major role in the art world, creating conditions for artists, shaping their careers and introducing contemporary artworks to institutional collections.

For a balanced relationship between the gallery and the artist to flourish, a clear set of rules and functioning dynamic need to be established. Today, at a time of new technologies and changing political and economic situation directly affecting the art field, such relationships are rocked and transformed, and new paths of working within the art sector arise.

How does the commercial gallery view the current opportunities and difficulties in selling art? Why do so few new galleries open? What is the vision of tomorrow's gallery and art market in general?

With: Cecilia Hillström, Cecilia Hillström Gallery; Paul Thomassen, Galleri Thomassen;  Eva-Lotta Holm Flach, Galleri Flach; Clay Ketter, artist

Moderator: Pontus Raud, Supermarket – Stockholm Independent Art Fair

Duration: 1.5 h. Location: Talks & Performance stage, 2nd floor

 

14.30 PERFORMANCE

O

Laura Cemin (IT/SE)

O is a shape. A line. A circle. O is a sculpture. O is a body. O is an exploration of a shape. Of the body. The shape is changing while we keep talking, words are exhaled and by that air is lost. But how can we stay afloat without air?

Starting from different utterances, some personal, some collectively repeated, a voice will guide the listeners through different questions, images, and bodily sensations.

Duration: 30 min. Location: Talks & Performance stage, 2nd floor

SATURDAY OFFSTAGE

13.00 PERFORMANCE

The Penal Labour

Heidi Edström [ingentinget] (SE)

A foundation does not have to be expensive to be good, but it is worth investing in. A good foundation is essential for smoothing out and concealing irregularities. Then you have something: something to continue to build on, on and on. Cover it up and create new outlines. Stare yourself blind upon the most inconsiderable details and watch them grow beyond recognition. I am building a wall between us. To shut me in, to shut you out, in a desperate attempt to be just like everyone else. Soon my nose will be covered by pebbles and maybe it is good, because it still smells piss in the town by 1 o’clock in the morning.

Durational. Location: Offstage / Café area, 2nd floor

Stuck in a Moment

Pınar Derin Gençer (TR)

The difference between past, present and future is nothing but a widespread illusion. In the body lies the soul of all time. The past can only be known, not changed. The future can only be changed, not known. And words are gone in search of the present / you.

Artist as Influencer: “Disrupting" the Art World

Amanda Wasielewski (US/SE)

In her talk ‘Artist as Influencer: “Disrupting” the Art world’, artist and academic Amanda Wasielewski will investigate the changes in contemporary artistic practice as influenced by digital tools of production and consumption. Based on her book ‘Made in Brooklyn: Artists, Hipsters, Makers, Gentrifiers’, Wasielewski looks at how contemporary art has become mainstream: artists operate through social media and other platforms of communication rather than through traditional art forums, such as museums and galleries. Ultimately, the question is asked what is considered as shocking art today? A selfie?

Proper Proximity

Marija Griniuk (LT/DK) Presented by BiteVilnius AiR

15.30 WORKSHOP (in English)

Fears Of

John W. Fail (FI)

‘Fears Of’ is a short, intensive workshop to experiment with the challenges we create for ourselves in our lives as artists and audience. The workshop will investigate taboos, boundaries, and self-created barriers to cultural interaction, not necessarily at the level of aesthetics/content, but in how we perceive ourselves, our engagement with others in the field, and our sense of belonging. The workshop will involve individual and group writing, drawing, and unchoreographed movement. This workshop is open-form and experimental in nature and promises no breakthroughs or answers, but possibly more questions.

The goal is to provide a showcase of artist-run spaces from all over the world and create opportunities for new networks on Swedish and international art scene. It is an art fair that strives to offer the visitor an experience rather than focusing on sales.

SUPERMARKET TALKS & PERFORMANCE PROGRAMME
TALKS & PERFORMANCE have formed a vital part of the art fair since its beginning with the aim to stimulate interest of broad public in questions, topic and trends relevant for contemporary art.

(2015), 10th anniversary of Supermarket (2016), Intimacy (2017) and Legacy: who will survive and what will be left of them? (2018). The theme for SUPERMARKET 2019 is Temporary moratorium: all allowed?
