Open House at Höfði, Nomeda & Gediminas Urbonas
+ MIT 4.333, Sunday 3 June 2-5 p.m.

Sunday June, 3rd the historic house, Höfði will be open to the public in relation to the work of Nomeda & Gediminas Urbonas currently on show at Reykjavik Art Museum – Hafnarhus.

In Reykjavík, they are collaborating with a group of students from Massachusetts Institute for Technology, MIT 4.333. They engage in a critical reflection on military technology through playful and seemingly innocent art production.

Hearsay House is a cross-disciplinary investigation and deconstruction of shared histories of the US and Europe in the ‘neutral grounds’ of Reykjavík, manifest through the imbedded narratives of Höfði. Höfði, location for the meeting of presidents Reagan and  Gorbachev in 1986, has become an interactive space communicating with the installation at Hafnarhús.

Nomeda & Gediminas Urbonas are known for a socially interactive and interdisciplinary practice that explores the conflicts and contradictions posed by economic, social and political conditions, primarily in, or in relation to, the former Soviet countries.
