The 14th edition of AVANT focus on bodies and boundaries. The body is both our most private territory and a social interface, a boundary that both divides and unites. The point of departure of AVANT is in one of the most legendary artists when it comes to the socio-political dimensions of the body, VALIE EXPORT, followed by Jayne Parker's early performance-based films. The theme of the body and its boundaries, as social body and embodiment of inner states and feelings, is followed up by focusing on external mechanisms of making boundaries; fences, border controls and the politics of immigration. The theme is introduced through the premiere of Gunvor Nelson's latest film, ON THE FENCE, and concludes with a program by artist duo Minna Rainio and Mark Roberts. AVANT begins on Friday evening at Kristinehamn Art Museum by artist talks with VALIE EXPORT and Jayne Parker. Saturday opens at cinema Arenan in Karlstad with a screening of films and videos by VALIE EXPORT and Jayne Parker. After this follows two works by Gunvor Nelson and a program with videos by Minna Rainio and Mark Roberts. AVANT has been organized since 2002 and the 14th edition is a collaboration between Världsalltet, Kristinehamn Art Museum, Karlstad and Stockholm University. AVANT17 is sponsored by Karlstad University, Karlstad Municipality, Kristinehamn Art Museum, Region Värmland, Folkuniversitetet and the Swedish Film Institute. Friday/Fredag 8.9.
