(I)ndependent People: Þóranna Björnsdóttir and Þráinn Hjálmarsson, Hafnarhús –Hlynur Hallsson & Jóna Hlíf Halldórsdóttir, Thursday 7 June 12.15 p.m.

Þóranna Björnsdóttir sound- and visual artist and Þráinn Hjálmarsson composer 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.

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.
