6 pm. Collected Works! Art’s Expression

An evening of talks on contemporary Swedish art

Since its foundation 30 years ago, the Maria Bonnier Dahlin Foundation has consistently sought out the new and innovative, and championed the young artist. Past grant recipients work within a wide variety of artistic fields, methods and expressions. The resulting collection, which now constitutes the exhibition at Bonniers Konsthall, provides a glance into each type of art and time frame, but also provides an overview of the developments to have taken place over a period of three decades. This evening’s events will be led by Niclas Östlind, as he hosts a discussion with a few of the exhibiting artists around the question: what has taken place in the Swedish contemporary art world since 1986?

Niclas Östlind is a freelance curator, writer and editor of Collected Works! 30 Years with the Maria Bonnier Dahlin Foundation, being published alongside the exhibition.

Tickets available from 28 April. Members can book complimentary tickets from 21 April.

6 pm. Astroecology

An entire evening of art with Johannes Heldén, including talks and live music

Bonniers Konsthall proudly presents a multimedia work by artist and author Johannes Heldén: Astroecology. Precisely where are we headed, as we manipulate DNA, species become extinct and climate change races full speed ahead? In Astroecology humanity is searching out any patterns in nature and existence, in order to understand them, control them and attain a sense of security. An experience of nature continuously brushing up against the potential of the digital static to transcend or extinguish. Zoom out as the pixels transform into stars.

Astroecology is both a book published by Albert Bonniers Förlag, as well as a series of performances at the Royal Dramatic Theatre in Stockholm. The multimedia work takes the form of a website, which can be described as an interactive map and a way to experience the world of Astroecology. This event includes a unique viewing of the work in the Bonniers Konsthall Library. Johannes Heldén will read from the work, while Wildbirds & Peacedrums contribute with a musical performance. Johannes Heldén will also speak with Ida Bencke, the editor of Broken Dimanche Press, on ecology and animals, consciousness and the future. The discussion will be held in English.

In 2015, Johannes Heldén was granted Sweden’s highest art award from the Åke Andrén Foundation. The jury praised his ‘fiercely unique artistic direction’ and ‘highly individualistic, poetically minded GPS.’ Live music will be provided by duo Wildbirds & Peacedrums, who have released four acclaimed albums and toured the world.

This project is a collaboration between Dramaten& and Albert Bonniers Förlag, with additional funding provided from the Swedish Arts Grants Committee, the Swedish Performing Arts Agency and the Helge Ax:son Johnson Foundation.

Tickets available from 28 April. Members can book complimentary tickets from 21 April.

Travel with Bonniers Konsthall to the Berlin Biennale, 9-12 June!

Join us as we head to Berlin to experience the leading contemporary art, and attend the 9th Berlin Biennale, one of this year’s artistic highlights!

Throughout the new millennium, Berlin has been establishing itself as one of the world’s true centres of art and culture. The intensely active art scene has been making its mark on the city and carving out an entirely unique atmosphere. This year’s Biennale has already sparked great interest in the art world, as it is being curated by the young New York-based art collective DIS.

We have selected the most inspiring exhibitions to attend at the Biennale and will venture out to experience the living art and culture in the city of Berlin. We will take in the unique Sammlung Boros private collection, wander round the trendy gallery district and take our time to discuss the art at a number of Berlin’s pleasant restaurants. Thérèse Dyhlén from Bonniers Konsthall and Berlin-based artist Kalle Brolin will lead us on this trip, and guide us through the various exhibitions.

Departure 9 June, Return 12 June. Bonniers Konsthall members receive a discounted price. Read more and book your trip via our collaborator Lotus Travel.

6 pm. Collected Works! Art’s Conditions

An evening of talks on contemporary Swedish art

Over the past 30 years, the Maria Bonnier Dahlin Foundation has awarded grants to young Swedish artists. The foundation’s work has continued uninterrupted, but the world in which these artists create has transformed. Working conditions have altered, influences have shifted and digital advancements have created a radically new framework for art and artists.

Theodor Ringborg and a number of the participating artists will discuss how the conditions for art and artists have changed since 1986. What did it mean to be an artist in the 1990s compared with being one today? What did a grant enable an artist to achieve in 1986, 2001 and what possibilities does it offer in 2016? How do changes in the economic, political and technical spheres affect the work of artists and what is expressed through art? What are any thoughts these artists have on potential challenges facing tomorrow’s artist?
