Lecture by Arnar Eggert Thoroddsen & Hjálmar Stefán Brynjólfsson, (I)ndependent People, Hafnahus, Thursday 31 May 12.15 p.m.

Arnar Eggert Thoroddsen critic and Hjálmar Stefán Brynjólfsson lawyer give a lecture in a series of presentations held as a part of Hlynur Hallsson´s and Jóna Hlíf Halldórsdóttir´s exhibition at Reykjavik Art Museum - Hafnarhús. The cumulative and process-based character of exhibiting is evident in the work of Jóna Hlíf Halldórsdóttir & Hlynur Hallsson, in their use of the Reykjavík Art Museum as a public platform. The exhibition is part of (I)ndependent People and further information can be found at

Apart from a new edition of the self-initiated journal, Blatt Blað—inspired by Dieter Roth’s Magazine for Everything—their project involves more than one hundred participating artists, contributing to the journal, producing direct statements, critical talks and an ‘open floor’. Talks and presentations by academics, activists and artists will be recorded and relayed on a growing number of screens in the venue.

The lecture takes place in Icelandic.
