May 10 – 12: 67,3% performative research seminar/Malin Arnell (SE)

Over the course of three days, artist Malin Arnell will enact a performative research seminar at Weld in Stockholm. The seminar encompasses a number of public actions, screenings and discussions that directly engage her ongoing artistic research, which is generated through live events.

Specifically, the title 67,3% performative research seminar points to the moment that this seminar occupies within the arc of her research, which currently takes place within the framework of a PhD in Choreography at University of Dance and Circus / Stockholm University of the Arts.

Arnell understands 67,3% performative research seminar as a methodology of entanglements in which each participant comes to exist within the research, and in which the movement across reenactments, presentations and conversations generates the choreographic.
