We will move in triangular formations and step on each other's feet.

Time: Tuesday May 29, 6 pm
Place: Lucie Fontaine’s studio, Iaspis, The Swedish Arts Grants Committee, Maria skolgata 83, Stockholm

The talk I am talking about something happening right here, right now is part of Body of Work, a project developed by Lucie Fontaine in collaboration with Iaspis and based on the following topics: authorship, signature, creativity and labour.

YES! Association / Föreningen JA! has once again invited Lee H. Jones to Sweden to discuss institutional critique in relation to the institution as a workplace at a time when space for critical reflection within the institution is continually diminished. Jones will present a report regarding the current situation and this will be the point of departure for a following discussion.

Lee H. Jones is a highly acclaimed organic intellectual, an activist thinker and a celebrated public speaker. Jones is also a well-known figure in the activist community in particular within the Movement. Founded in 2005, YES! Association / Föreningen JA! is a separatist association for art workers whose practices and activities are informed by feminism with an intersectional perspective.

In parallel to the talk, Lucie Fontaine’s exhibition space in Stockholm, a satellite of the space she established in Milan in 2008, will host a solo exhibition by Romanian artist Alex Mirutziu.

Lucie Fontaine is in residence at Iaspis during spring 2012. For more information about Lucie Fontaine and Body of Work, please visit www.konstnarsnamnden.se and www.luciefontaine.com

  • YES! Association / Föreningen JA! was an art collective, an artwork, an association, an art worker, an institution, a group of people working to overthrow the ruling system of heteronormative, patriarchal, racist, and capitalist power structures by putting into practice a structural redistribution of access to financial resources, space and time within the (art) field.
