20.30 Jon Brunberg om sitt arbete med bl.a. monumentet The Polynational War Memorial.

Från hemsidan: “Jon Brunberg has worked for ten years as an artist and has exhibited frequently in Sweden and abroad. He is currently working on a trilogy in which he takes on complex issues such as utopia, conflict and power. One part of this trilogy is The Polynational War Memorial, which is an interdisciplinary art project that will result in an architectonic proposal for a global memorial for all wars since 1945. Another work in this series is the internet-based work Power as Metaphysics and Measurable Unit. Jon Brunberg has also produced more intimate works, for example the interactive video installation Disjunction (and nowhere to turn to), which has been shown in Stockholm, Berlin and San Francisco, and a series of video- and audio works, such as 101 Years and 19 Years, which both use a political map to display certain events at a high speed.”

“Jon Brunberg was a member of the artist group and experimental art space SOC.Stockholm between 1999 and 2005, and intitiated during that time the internet-aided art project The Utopian World Championship together with Annika Drougge.”

Om Pia Rönicke‘s film Rosa’s Letters – Telling a Story, från Hot Docs 2008:
“Rosa’s Letters – Telling a Story centres on the letters of Rosa Luxemburg (1870-1919), pioneering Polish socialist, philosopher and revolutionary. But rather than simply documenting the life of a historical personality, artist Pia Rönicke appropriates the letters in a deliberately subjective manner. The film’s voiceover is based on fragments from various stages of Rosa’s remarkable life, including many years of correspondence to her lover and work partner Leo Jogiches, her letters to lover and friend Konstantin Zetkin, and writings from her time in prison in Wronki and Breslau to her friends Sonja Liebknecht and Hans Diefenbach. A fascinating transformation takes place as intimate letters become publicly accessible, historical documents.”
