Akademin Valand MFA year one spring exhibition

What happens when artists engage with an archaeological excavation? A group of ten MFA students from Akademin Valand in Göteborg, Sweden are developing a laboratory exhibition as a way to approach fieldwork as an artistic method. Taking the dig site at Nya Lödöse as a starting point, the artists interact with history, identity and ethics through their artistic practices. The juxtaposition of science and art invites new ways of seeing for both the artists and the scientific community.

Over the course of a week, the exhibition space will be activated with a series of events with invited speakers, performance artists and musicians. Dialogue will take place across fields including archaeology, contemporary art and poetry.

To follow the process and events, follow updates on this tumblr page.

Can you dig it? is developed within the framework of the EU-project NEARCH – (New Scenarios for a Community-involved Archaeology) of which Gothenburg University is a partner and to which Jason E. Bowman, Programme Leader of the MFA: Fine Art is affiliated as a researcher.
