Artists, artistic collectives, thinkers and activists from Iceland, Germany, Kenya, Mali, Syria, Greenland and Poland have been asked to engage with the theme throughout Spring and Summer of 2022. The growing body of thoughts and ideas will coalesce from 5th to 15th of September in Reykjavík, when the results of their explorations will be presented to a wide audience in a holistic program – on site and digitally at the Nordic House Reykjavík, as well as in schools and in the outdoors.
The exhibition A Growing Body of Evidence will be open in Hvelfing at the Nordic House in Reykjavík from 10 Sep – 23 Dec 2022. Curators: Arnbjörg María Danielsen and Thomas Schaupp.
We live in a crisis-ridden time of hesitation and do not seem to be aligned for a positive shared future. At the same time there are ideas to confront the explosive issues – climate, migration, inequality, and resources. Goethe Morph* Iceland, a transcultural intervention by the Goethe-Institut and Nordic House Reykjavík, provides a platform for artists, thinkers and activists to share their ideas along an engaging and unifying theme: How we always wanted to have lived!
Poetic reflections on the body as a political, cultural, and social oracle will merge with future-archaeological, transmigratory, decolonizing, and queer visions of history, nature, time and (im-)materiality. Goethe Morph* Iceland becoming a recalibration of common knowledge and an invitation to all of us to actively shape the morphology of our lives.
