|CuratorLab 2017/18 (Eds.)Red Love: A Reader on Alexandra Kollontai
Kollontai. A Play by Agneta Pleijel
Red Love: A Reader on Aleksandra Kollontai stems from a yearlong research by CuratorLab at Konstfack University together with Tensta konsthall, leading up to Dora García’s exhibition “Red Love” and its related public programing. A number of artists and thinkers revisit Kollontai’s ideas on the politics of love and their relation to current political, social and feminist struggles. The publication also includes the biographical play Kollontai from 1977 by distinguished Swedish writer Agneta Pleijel.
|Erik Niedling with Ingo NiermannBurial of the White Man|
Burial of the White Man is a bildungsroman about the friendship between artist Erik Niedling and writer Ingo Niermann. While in their thirties, they begin collaborating on a series of projects of ever-increasing ambition and scope: a tomb for all humans, a dissident replica of the U.S. Army, a German-Mozambican liberation movement, a ritual of living one year like it’s your last, a transformation of the oldest and most troubled German political party, a global fitness cult … Each failure is answered with an even more outrageous endeavor—culminating in the burial not only of themselves, but of the entire subspecies of the white man.
