Lundahl & Seitl, Stefan Jonsson och Devin Phillip Zuber. Moderator Susanne Fessé

Samtalet sker på engelska.

Utifrån den nyöppnade utställningen fördjupar vi oss i begreppet Involution, som bland annat Carla Hustak och Natasha Myers influerats av i feministisk teori kring plantekologi. Stefan Jonsson, litteraturvetare och kritiker anknyter till begreppet Motståndets estetik, utvecklat av Peter Weiss roman med samma namn och reflekterar kring estetik som motståndshandling idag tillsammans med konstnärsduon Lundahl & Seitl. Medverkar gör även Devin Phillip Zuber, professor i amerikastudier, religon- och litteraturvetenskap. 

In English:

The artist duo Lundahl & Seitl will discuss different aspects of the newly comissioned art work Involution together with Devin Phillip Zuber, Associate Professor of American Studies, Religion, and Literature, and Stefan Jonsson, who is a Cultural Theorist with a specialism in Peter Weiss's work, as well as a Professor at Linköping University. The talk will be moderated by art historian, curator and writer, Susanne Fessé.

Stefan Jonsson is Professor at Linköping University. His research is multidisciplinary with a base in critical cultural theory and aiming toward an understanding of the social and historical formation of collective identities. Originally a scholar and critic of literature, aesthetics, and intellectual history, Stefan has increasingly focused on the social and historical processes through which identities are constituted and transformed in the crossroad between the psychic and the political or the social.
