On (dance) art and cultural politics

Sweden is facing a shift in art and cultural politics, and we’re not the only ones. As one travels internationally in Europe nowadays, almost everyone (with a few exceptions) is talking about the massive budget cuts and how artists and institutions are struggling. In some countries, this is also tied to democratic restrictions.

Showing: several attempts at braiding my way home

Creative Crossroads artist Adam Seid Tahir is showing their work several attempts at braiding my way home, which they developed together with their sister Amina Seid Tahir, at MDT Stockholm. Shifting between labour and speculative proposals several attempts at braiding my way home insists on fiction as a tool for quaking potential and finding opportunities for recovery and belonging. The performance swims alongside Clymene dolphins, who defy understandings of heritage. It listens to walruses who trust their hair for navigation.

Reza Mirabi is at MDT Stockholm

Reza Mirabi started his Artistic Residency at MDT Stockholm. He investigates the role of seeds during times of crisis. Inspiration for this research is a graffiti he saw around the corner of his grandmothers house and a former barren terrain in South India, which was transformed into a dreamy garden by two activists – only by using seeds.
