Spring School 2021

(Re)configuring Territories Spring School 2021
With Francisco Martínez and Andra Aaloe,
Maria Muuk, and MYCKET (Mariana Alves Silva, Katarina Bonnevier and Thérèse Kristiansson)
May 31 – June 6, 2021

(Re)configuring Territories programme continues as a week-long Spring School on May 31 – June 6, 2021. The Spring School consists of three simultaneous workshops mentored by anthropologist Francisco Martínez and urbanist Andra Aaloe, graphic designer, baker and writer Maria Muuk, and architecture, art and design practice MYCKET.

POST-BROKENNESS
In the Post-Brokenness workshop led by Francisco Martínez and Andra Aaloe, participants will study how personal and collective relationships are sustained in relation to maintenance and repair practices. This programme opens up a wide range of questions about recuperation, care-taking, and sustainability by focusing on how life goes on even in a context characterised by negative capability and exhausted ecologies. The workshop can host 5 presencial participants at Narva and will consider the possibility of also having a few participants online.

OBSCHENIE
In the Obschenie workshop led by Maria Muuk, participants will set out to feed themselves and the whole group. This necessity will be used as an excuse to explore habits and preferences that start with food and dining but tell a lot about class, cultural backgrounds, feelings of home and political inclinations. The workshop prefers to host 5 participants at Narva (as part of the workshop involves cooking dinners together) and a few participants online.

TROLLPERCEPTION IN THE HEARTLANDS
In the Trollperception in the Heartlands workshop led by MYCKET (via Katarina Bonnevier), participants are invited to delve into trolls, spirits, and animism together, joining the pack, and craft together, while simultaneously mediating and sharing these artworks through filmed animations – investigating what new and unforeseen knowledge can be derived from the process itself. The workshop can host 5 participants online.

Post-Brokenness

Andra Aaloe and Francisco Martínez will host the workshop ‘Post-Brokenness’ in the (Re)configuring Territories Spring School taking place in Narva (May–June 2021). Selected participants will study how personal and collective relationships are sustained in relation to the maintenance and repair of the surrounding environment, opening up a wide range of questions about care-taking, sustainability and the fragility of the worlds we inhabit.

Obshchenie (working title)

The main aim of this workshop at the Reconfiguring Territories Spring School is very simple: to feed ourselves and the whole group. We will use this necessity as an excuse to explore our own as well as local habits and preferences that start with food and dining but tell a lot about class, cultural backgrounds, feelings of home and political inclinations. Let us carefully scavenge our surroundings for matters to bring to the table: radishes and cucumbers from the supermarket and a local dacha; eggs from a nearby farm; sakuski and toasts; lunch offers; Turkish pizza and Chinese takeout; undervalued grandma pastries from around the corner; overpriced puree soups from the university cafeteria; basement shops and banquet halls; strange jars in cyrillic with surprisingly familiar contents.

Trollperception in the Heartlands

In 2021, MYCKET will embark on a new three year artistic research project called Trollperception in the Heartlands. In Trollperception in the Heartlands, we turn to folktales and legends to reconnect to that time when people in our regions lived closer to, and were more subordinated to nature. Trollperception in the Heartlands is a transdisciplinary design project emerging out of our own heartlands in southern rural Sweden, expanding the formal field used to generate sustainable future scenarios through site-specific crafting and crafting video animations informed by folktales and mythology.

MYCKET collaboration

MYCKET collaboration
Stockholm & Östergötland, founded in 2012 by Mariana Alves Silva, Dr.Katarina Bonnevier and Thérèse Kristiansson. The architecture, art and design practice MYCKET develops artistic research from intersectional perspectives such as anti-racist and queer-feminist theories. A practice informed by the theatrical, the carnivalesque and political activism. Together they rummage through the borderlands of the lives we live, and the environment that surrounds us.

(Re)configuring Territories Talk: Feminist Fairytales, Parties and Eating Together as Spatial Practices

(Re)configuring Territories Talk: Feminist Fairytales, Parties and Eating Together as Spatial Practices
Could fiction and eating dinner together be seen as ways to question the conventional methods of spatial and design practices? Can these careful methods create a more resilient and discursive architecture and design culture? In the talk, the art & architecture group MYCKET (Mariana Alves Silva, Katarina Bonnevier, and Thérèse Kristiansson), graphic designer/writer/baker Maria Muuk and curator Kaisa Karvinen investigate strategies in each of their practices and dream about possible roles of architects and designers in the neighborhoods of current society. The talk starts with a short reading.

(Re)configuring Territories Talk: Anthropology, Fieldwork, and Design Research

(Re)configuring Territories Talk: Anthropology, Fieldwork, and Design Research
Interest in anthropology is growing in situated architecture and design research circles, with fieldwork and community-led design processes becoming an increasingly important part of the critical discourse. What should architects, designers, and artists know from anthropology and its methodology? What can these disciplines learn from each other? (Re)configuring Territories program curator Tommi Vasko will talk with professor Francisco Martínez and filmmaker and artist Polina Medvedeva about fieldwork and the relationships between artistic research and anthropology.
