The Comissioned Drawings

30 August–29 September

 
The Commissioned Drawings is a project that José Luis Martinat embarked on in 2007, in which he works with portrait painters and street artists in Latin America. First, he asks the artists to paint a classical portrait of him, and then he urges them to portray him as though he were deceased. They are allowed total freedom in how they choose to depict his ‘death’. So far, the project consists of 120 paintings, and has taken place in cities in Mexico and Peru. Particpants: José Luis Martinat
 
Inauguration: Thursday 5 September, 5–8 pm.
During the sneak preview of GIBCA Extended, the exhibition will be open and the artist José Luis Martinat will be present.
 

If the LORD your God enlarges your territory

4 October–3 November

The origins of archaeology as a discipline are tied to the colonial capitalist power regime that is rarely questioned today. If the LORD your God enlarges your territory is a process-based project that was initiated in 2001 at Tepe Sial, a large prehistoric archaeologic excavation site situated in a suburb outside the city of Kashan in Iran. The project investigates how archaeology and cultural heritage perform a political function today. How does archaeology's current purposes rhyme with today’s conceptions of cultural heritage, of national treasures and of patriotism? Furthermore, the project moves on to raise questions about material culture, the object’s ability to carry memories and traumas as well as the relationship between cultural heritage, citizens and territories. Participant: Azadeh Esmaili Zaghi
 
Opening: Friday 4 October, 5–8pm
 

Den allmänna ordningen och den inre säkerheten

8 November–8 December

In the exhibition Den allmänna ordningen och den inre säkerheten the artist David Larsson presents material from the mapping of arson at refugee and asylum centers in Sweden. This is something he has been working on during the past three years. In a growing series of photographs, we encounter places that exist beyond the singular event that is being portrayed. We are fed with images that on one hand show the usual Sweden, that many of us might recognize, and on the other hand, these places are nodes in a historical and political moment, which contains histories of violence, hatred, migration and vulnerability. Participant: David Larsson
 
Opening: 8 November, 5–8pm
 
Workshop: 10 November, 11am–3pm. What was the “refugee crises”?
Currently, up to 70 million people around the world have been forced to leave their homes. The highest number ever. In Sweden and Europe, we proclaim that the so called “refugee crises” has come to an end. In a workshop we discuss and work together in order to come to an understanding of what the idea of a “refugee crises” may or may not be.
The workshop is open to the public and requires no previous knowledge.
Coffee and snacks will be served during the day.
Please notify mail@davidlarsson.net if you are interested in joining the workshop.
