In memoriam/In futurum is an interdisciplinary artistic project with curating students at Stockholm University, artists studying at the Royal Institute of Art (KKH) and student researchers from different departments at Stockholm University.
It takes experimentation as a starting point. A loaded tension between past, future and present. It aims to enable collaborations between students across different fields, taking advantage of studying as an exploratory, liminal state where anything could happen.
The project was initially inspired by the exhibition “The Experimental Field” at Accelerator, which traces back the history of the SU campus as a site of agricultural experimentation and opens up questions of experimental ways to live together and with our environment.
In memoriam/In futurum is designed to encourage artists, curators and researchers from other fields to meet and test things out together. Curators and artists have been paired with different researchers according to interests, forming eight experimental clusters that meet regularly for discussions, workshops and experimental activities together.
The experimentation undertaken by each cluster will become a series of zines in June 2021.
Go check out each of our clusters to see what they’ve been up to!

In memoriam/In futurum is made possible by our sponsors Stockholm University and Accelerator. The website is sponsored by Loopia and was built by our artistic design collaborator Frida Häggström Gerdt.
