New issue of VIS!


On 18 November, issue eight of VIS – Nordic Journal for Artistic Research was released, with the theme “of Rules and Alternatives”. The editors of the issue are Serge von Arx and Eliot Moleba.

VIS #8 oscillates between established structures and their innate disturbances. The seven expositions under the theme “rules and alternatives” operate in the blind spots and on the fringes of the arts, they open up new perspectives and frames, and recontextualize what is hidden in well-known areas.

The Expositions in the issue are:

  • Vietnamese Diasporic Voices: Exploring Yellow Music in a Liminal Space by Nguyễn Thanh Thủy

  • In circles leading on – folkdance, a choreographic intersection by Andreas Berchtold

  • Circular Bowing, Cyclical Work by Karin Emilia Hellqvist

  • A to Z: Visualising Every Word in the Dictionary in Alphabetical Order by Dave Ball

  • Back to present by Thalia Hoffman

  • Traditioning, dissolving (Tradering, oppløsing) by Ingfrid Breie Nyhus

  • Tree of Dawn: Translation as a Method by Aurora Del Rio
