Wednesday 17/11 Gothenburg

Lytle Shaw, Jonas (J) Magnusson & Cecilia Grönberg on fieldworks, locality, and alternative histories

New York based writer Lytle Shaw will talk about his recent book New Grounds for Dutch Landscape (OEI editör, 2021), where he uses an experimental, site-specific method to demonstrate how 17th century Dutch painters did not so much represent the newly made landscape of Holland as reenact, through the materials and techniques used in their paintings, its reclamation and the ongoing threats to its stability: from flooding to erosion.

Jonas (J) Magnusson & Cecilia Grönberg will discuss entanglements of fieldwork, editing, and local materialities, based on their work ”reading | locality (mountains, prints) [strata from an expanded book; billingen, kinnekulle (2001-2021)]” currently on display at Göteborg Konsthall as part of Göteborg International Biennial for Contemporary Art.

The evening is moderated by Lisa Rosendahl, Curator of Göteborg International Biennial for Contemporary Art 2021 and Associate Professor of Exhibition Studies at The Academy of Fine Art in Oslo.
