Welcome to a conversation and listening session between Tentative Transmits and Meira Ahmemulic.
The platform Tentative Transmits will introduce their work and research about politics of memory, archives and storytelling, as well as post-socialist transitions.
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.
Meira Ahmemulic is an artist and writer. She studied at Valand College of Art in Gothenburg and at the Academy of Fine Arts in Colombo, Sri Lanka. Her work has been exhibited at several art institutions in Sweden, most recently at Blå Stället (Angered), GIBCA (Gothenburg International Biennial of Contemporary Art) and Moderna Museet. As an author, she has been published in magazines such as Ord&Bild, Glänta, OEI and Paletten.
Tentative Transmits: The Radio as G/Host is a discursive audio platform that investigates memory, radio histories, solidarity practices and post-socialist transitions, across and beyond, Central and Eastern Europe. Through concepts such as hauntology, post-memory and off-modern, Tentative Transmits together with its collaborators seek to put the relationship of archive and narrative into question.
Tentative Transmits is organised by Olivia Berkowicz and Marianna Feher.
Accessibility: Mint can be reached by lift (K2) and accessible toilets are available on all floors.
Tentative Transmits is supported by the Swedish Arts Council, Nordic Culture Fund – Globus Opstart, and artistic and research funding from the Royal Institute of Art, Stockholm.
