LOL in Sweden

by Ellen Mueller on September 12, 2012, no comments

art:screen has been invited to curate a screening program on the theme ‘LoL’ (Laughing out Loud) for Onskoldsviks Museum & Konsthall ‘Black box’, Örnsköldsvik, Sweden from September 18 – October 5, 2012.

The program consists of works from art:screen’s archive. My video ‘Preparing for Bioterrorism‘ has been selected and will be shown during the event.

art:screen is a platform that showcases new, compelling, innovative and contemporary video art and moving image from Swedish and international artists. art:screen is, for many artists, the window for showing their work in Sweden and Europe.

art:screen shows single-channel screening programmes which have tempo and flow. To create this, the duration of works are at maximum five minutes long. The programmes explore new ways of seeing reality from a cultural, social and individual perspective and often employ humour to give new insights.

art:screen is an artist-run, non-profit initiative organised by Eva Olsson and Jonas Nilsson who are both practising professional artists with an extensive experience of curating screening programmes.
