We will also listen together to a piece by artist Nakul Krishnamurhty that invites another set of vocal sounds into the fabric of the installation.
Affective Infrastructures: Chronic Film and Decolonial Image Artefacts
Lecture performance and meeting with artist Alexandra Anikina
Mint is pleased to invite you to a meeting with Alexandra Anikina as part of an exchange program between artists in Russia and Sweden.
Alexandra (Sasha) Anikina is an artist and media theorist whose work focuses on image politics, algorithmic imaginaries and myth-making, feminist STS, and technological conditions of governance, labour, and affect. She is a Senior Lecturer in Media Practices at Winchester School of Art (University of Southampton). Anikina works with moving image, computer simulation and lecture-performances, investigating affect, image politics, labour and temporalities in digital culture. The persistent themes in her practice involve procedural animism, algorithmic imaginaries, digital folklore and post-socialism.
In this event at Cascade Bend Chamber, Stine Janvin and Cara Tolmie respond to the environment of the exhibition through their ongoing explorations with explorative ‘hand to mouth’ vocality and ASMR inspired intimacy. This responsive ‘functional’ music further expands their previous vocal explorations into the repeated, fragmented and extreme voice set within the uncanny setting of fabrics, unreliable echos and curious small sounds found at Mint.
Welcome to a conversation and listening session between Tentative Transmits and Meira Ahmemulic.

Saturday’s program includes a conversation and listening session with the artist Meira Ahmemulic, featuring the premiere of her newly commissioned sound work När moster gav SKF fingret (translation, “When aunt gave SKF the finger”).
När moster gav SKF fingret is about the haunting power of words and cursing as resistance. Ahmemulic is inspired by curses from the villages Gusinje and Plav in Montenegro, situated in the shadow of Prokletije – the Accursed Mountains.
The conversation and listening session will be in Swedish.

This evening departs from a series of reports from different contemporary struggles that reflect the conditions to document and establish one’s public narrative. Based on this aspect, which historical continuities with earlier movements can we see in today’s struggles?

Which narratives are given a voice, which are suppressed? How is the ongoing struggle over history expressed today in different contexts? Participants: Judith Kiros, Stefano Harney och Fred Moten.
