Recording of the future lenght futuristic Nollywood movie Nolly 2025 in Badore Lagos during 5 days in feburary 2015 with Sonia Hestrand.

Lagos år 2025. Nollywood dominerar nu den globala filmindustrin totalt. Den militanta AFIAN-gerillan bestämmer sig för att organisera sig för att skapa ett alternativ mot den kommersiella filmindustrin! De skyr inga medel i sin kamp för den nyskapande, revolutionära film de vill göra. Bland våra hjältinnor råder ingen brist på visioner men pengarna saknas. När de möter Oljebiljadären Mr Adeosun ser de sin chans. De smider en plan som ska förändra samhället genom konstnärlig film. Kommer de att lyckas eller kommer hela projektet grusas när en av militanterna blir handlöst förälskad i oligarkens unge vackre son? Är det möjligt att både skapa grandios konst, göra revolution och vinna den stora kärleken?

The future was at her fingertip- digital ambivalence, cyborging and technofeminism

In The future was at her fingertip- digital ambivalence, cyborging and technofeminism 0s+1s Collective is exhibiting works produced during our five years of collaborations at Södertälje konsthall during the summer 2018.

0s+1s Collective utforskar tillsammans cyberfeminism och teknikhistoria ur feministiska perspektiv. På Södertälje konsthall visar de sitt gemensamma konstnärliga arbete tillsammans med sin research från de senaste 5 åren i en installation. Tillsammans utforskar kollektivet den tekniska historien ur feministiska perspektiv, anti-hierarkiska sätt att skapa konst i grupp samt cyberfeminismens förändrade villkor från 1980-talet till idag. Installationen är ett samarbete mellan konstnärerna Sonia Hedstrand, Anna Kinbom, Rut Karin Zettergren (Sverige) och Choterina Freer (Storbritannien). Konsthallens besökare ges möjlighet att ta del av gruppens referenslitteratur, egenproducerade artiklar, videos, ljudverk och hemsidor.

The exhibition is opening between 2018.06.09 - 2018.08.26.

Winner of the drawing competition Den tänkande Handen 2018

Between 20 of april and 25 of June 2018 I partook in an exhibiton that showed the works of the ten finalist in the drawing competition Den tänkande handen (The Thinking Hand ) at Gustav III Antikmuseum at the Royal castle in Stockholm. I showed drawings in ink and charcoal on papper, documentation from performances and homepages. The works was made during the last two years and deal with the history of internet, technique developed for surveillance, structures of multinational technique companies and technofeminism.

 



The jury from Kungl. Akademien för de fria konsterna (The Royal Academy of Fine Arts) chose me to be one of the three winners of the price with this motivation.

”Rut Karin Zettergren har kopplat den tänkande handen runt det mest och allomfattande i våran digitaliserade värld. Ställd mot denna blir tecknandet perfromativt, personligt humoristiskt och poetiskt. Det glider ut och in ur funktioner och betydelser och blir i ordets bemärkelse ett redskap att tänka kring strukturer, makt och motstånd.”

”Rut Karin Zettergren has wrapped the thinking hand around that witch is most generic and universal in our digitised world. Against this backdrop, drawings becomes performative, personal, humorous and poetic. It slips in and and out of functions and significations and becomes, in the best of sense of the word, a tool for thinking about structures, power and resistance.”

 



The competition is organised by The Royal Academy of Fine Arts and founded in honor of the Swedish King Carl XVI Gustaf. I received the price from the king of Sweden at the Swedish national day and I will The price money will invest my price money in my coming work Hearing, Iron, Gunpowder, Humans and Sugar. In the work me and the jamaican dancer Olando Whyte will look in to how current culture forms and cultural institutions historical connections to the triangular trading system that was underpinning the transatlantic slave trade. One essential part of the project is to investigate Sweden’s role in the trade. Among the beneficiaries of the trade was the Swedish ”theatre king” Gustav III in who’s sculptural gallery The thinking Hand was exhibited. Except from Sweden's income from the iron and hearing that was sold to England and exported to Africa or the Caribbean the king was also one of the founder of the Swedish Caribbean Company and received 25 percent of its gains from the slave trade and the Swedish slave colony Saint Barthélemy. Gustav III was also a grate cultural lover and the founder of several important cultural institutions that still plays a major role in the Swedish culture scene as the Swedish Academy, The Royal Academy of Fine Arts, The royal Opera, The dramatical thatcher, the royal bailey and the Royal institute of Art and more. So this cultural grant connected to the monarch will serve us well when we are following the money Sweden gained from the triangular trade and the cultural heritage that was formed from the money gained from the trade.

 


 

Mozarts Ghost– internetkonst, feminism och motstånd at Göteborgs Konsthall.

På 1960- och 70-talen använde sig feminister av personliga upplevelser inom konst och litteratur som ett sätt att öka medvetenheten kring kvinnliga erfarenheter. 30 år senare, på 90-talet – när internet blev tillgängligt – formulerade en ny generation feminister utopier för en mer sammanlänkad, jämlik och uppkopplad framtid. Cyberfeminism tog avstamp i det förflutna och ifrågasatte internet som de menade var ett patriarkalt system.
Göteborgs Konsthall presenterar Mozart’s Ghost, en utställning som genom konst, workshops och seminarier belyser nätet som ett utrymme för både motstånd och utopier.
Utställningen samlar konstnärer som inspireras av nostalgin som idag finns kring internet-, tv- och kändiskultur från 90-talet – en period som sammanfaller med att cyberfeminism växte fram.

Dagens självdokumentations– och bekännelsekultur är på många sätt kopplad till tidigare rörelsers motstånd. Samtidigt har den också utvecklats till en jakt på “likes”, en idealiserad och kommersialiserad konstruktion av jaget och identiteten. Kulturen som vuxit fram genom sociala medier, som Facebook, Instagram, Youtube och dataspel, tvingar oss alla att omvärdera frågor kring frihet, intimitet och anonymitet. Vi ser idag allt fler konstnärer som, genom videor, gifs, memes och annat webbaserat arbete, vill ta tillbaka makten inom dessa forum.

Mozart’s Ghost medverkar både svenska och internationella konstnärer med arbeten från de senaste tio åren. Flera verk berör sexism, rasism och ekonomisk ojämlikhet, medan andra fokuserar på teknik och dess estetik. Gränsen mellan verklighet och det digitala är mer flytande än någonsin, och i utställningen visar vi hur det har påverkat konsten..

Inna di Video Light nordic tour

During the autumn and winter me and Anna Rokka has exhibited our common work Inna di Video Light at Gallery 54 in Gothenburg September 5- October 4 , Titanic in Turko November 2 to 26 and Sinne in Helsinki 25 January to 4 Marsh. The exhibition has expanded both in area since, amount of screens and cd.

In Inna di Video Light you’re guided through the noisy world of dancehall by the Internet_Dollz; two It-Girl cyborgs. Meet the stars of the night, dancehall queens and kings during 100 long party nights in Kingston, intermixed with life online in a dreamlike hyper-reality. The club scene forms a stage for blasting feelings and physical discharge, which is intensified by the presence of the camera. This expression, which in other times might have been acted out through spiritual rituals, is now captured by the parallel universe of the virtual world, where its users reinterpret and transform it. The internet becomes an image of the globalized society’s collective subconscious, which holds everything from the most forbidden, amusing and raw to the most loving, well-polished and personal. Get captured inInna di Video Lights world where there are no longer clear boundaries between the cinematic and the physical or the dreamed and the lived.

1,2,3,4: The Rhythm Method by 0s+1s Collective

0s+1s Collective shows work at the festival Work Hard! Play Hard !
Saturday 8 July 2017
7.50-8.50pm: Minsk

 


Four members of 0s+1s Collective will share a group conversation – alongside text, video and performance. The collective will be introducing the selected works via Skype within the context of recent group discussions on how emotional labour and personal feelings form an essential part of our collective practice.

1. Anna Kinbom will be streaming two of her songs (Love and Smaragden's Song to Mick) in her inclusive karaoke style.

2. Choterina Freer will present her multiform essay film Impatient Voices – in which she considers the commercialisation of both the collective impulse (as seen in social media) and of biomedical technology (health tracker apps) through using their forms and imagery with archival documentation of women’s health collectives from the 70s.

3. Rut Karin Zettergren’s web-girl alter-ego Soft Light – clued up in technology, surveillance and dance hall – will stream a live performance lecture on the subject of artificial intelligence.

4. Sonia Hedstrand’s text The Performative Worker will be partially translated (from Swedish to Russian) by Maria Kotlyachkova. The text is based on the artist’s personal and political experiences of performative service labour from Parisian Au Pairs to Tokyo Host Boys.

5. Jenna Collis will participate with ‘Rain So Hard’ a recording of a dispersed performance by 0s+1s. She has arranged the sound of a passing rainstorm from stock sounds and distributed parts to each member of the collective who were in Sweden, the UK and Argentina at the time

The Legacy Complex by 0s+1s Collective at Gotlands Konstmuseum

Gotlands Konstmuseum presenterar The Legacy Complex av svensk-brittiska konstnärskollektivet 0s+1s Collective bestående av Jenna Collins, Choterina Freer, Sonia Hedstrand, Anna Kinbom och Rut Karin Zettergren. Utställningen visar nyproducerade verk i form av video, ljud och installation. Verken är resultaten av drygt ett års efterforskningar som inbegriper överlappande militära, filmiska, sociala och personliga historier på Gotland ur ett feministiskt perspektiv. Centralt i utställningen är konstnärernas gemensamma intresse för teknologi, internet och cyberfeminism. Konstnärskollektivet ifrågasätter hierarkier och tänjer på konstutövandets kontext, vilket också gestaltas i utställningen genom att verken är sammankopplade både innehållsmässigt och visuellt.
www.0s1s.net

Utställningen har öppet från 18 Februari till 23 of April 2017.

The Legacy Complex symposium

28th - 29th June, 2016. Malongen , Stockholm.

The Legacy Complex (TLC) is an on-going international artists research and production project that thinks through the interconnecting military, filmic, social and personal histories located on Gotland island from a feminist perspective. Now halfway through the project, the symposium is a chance to come together and present particular interests, share research, and discuss the various contexts and histories the artists within 0s+1s (and guests) have responded to.

 


My presentation at the seminar was the performance: A home surveillance system for dancehall queens: Soft Light on Alphabet Inc.. During the performance Soft Light presented a series drawings based on the structures of the company Alphabet Inc. (the multinational conglomerate company that was formed from Google). The drawings are inspired by google brain, YouTube, Googles AI ;Parsey McParseface, Android, its robotic companies, Google cloud service, Google earth etc... The session was also live broadcast on Soft Lights Periscope.

The performance is a part of my ongoing work A home surveillance system for dancehall queens where I investigates self surveillance culture on internet. The work takes it starting point in my involvement in homemade dance videos for internet forums. In the work I tries to investigate the systems, technique and ideologies that are the base of this culture in a historical perspective and work with it within short video performances.

The Legacy Complex

0s+1s Collective have started the work on our new project. The Legacy Complex is an artistic research project investigating direct democratic organizational models based on a radical women's group-traditions and the military origin of communication and documentation technology in combination with the development of cyberfeminism as artistic genre. The project starts from the Swedish island of Gotland, it’s film history, geopolitical situation and defence strategic position in the Baltic sea historically and today. The work that will be carried out on the island during spring and summer 2016 consists of research in form of visual mapping and an ongoing seminar that will result in five individual works and a common large scale performance-, video-, and web-based work performed in Kustateljén, Fårösund.

With this project the 0s+1s explores what it means as a flat organized feminist collective to express ourselves artistically through technology developed for military purposes to fit a hierarchical organization as the army? How can we adopt Donna Haraway's concept of the cyborg as strategic position to orient this technology towards an alternative, democratic and critical use?

The Legacy Complex is supported by Kulturbryggan, BAC, Baltic Art Center, Bergmangårdarna and Malongen/NKF, The Nordic Art Association.

Vissa lämnar sina barn i Sydostasien för att arbeta som husor hos oljemiljardärer i Arabemiraten. Några vandrar från sina byar i Västafrika till megastädernas getton när öknen förstör deras jordbruksmark. En del flyr inbördeskrig sponsrade av multinationella företag som letar efter tantal för att producera fler smartphones. Andra hotell-hoppar i Kina för att göra affärer i den nya ekonomin. Och så vi, de samtida konstnärerna, den prekära överklass som reser världen runt på vistelsestipendier. För att försöka försörja oss, förstå, bearbeta och uttrycka denna situation. Den globala moderniteten.

Utställningen Den konstnärliga reseberättelsen sammanför flera verk på detta tema, gestaltat genom video, foto och performance. Dryckesbröderna är en resande duo som tar sig till olika romantiska platser med betydelse i europeiskt konstliv. I Nollywood Hustlers /Nolly 2025 reser två megalomaniska svenska filmare till nigerianska Lagos för att göra revolutionär Nollywood-film i världens största filmindustri. I FIFA Song sjungs en sång om konstvärldens villkor på gatorna i São Paulo under fotbolls-VM. Videodagboken Ukiyo Diary skildrar en amoralisk pojkfotograf när hon porträtterar unga eskortkillar i Tokyos undre värld. I Rebuild and Change Nature får vi ta del av en biståndsarbetares upplevelser av att vara europé i ett postkolonialt Kampala där unga kvinnor bleker sig och musiker använder vita dansare i sina musikvideos för att bli kända. I Things that are far yet near drömmer en resande kvinna om ett liv med en man i Mexico City som aldrig blir av. I The Lost Generation betraktar en världsfrånvänd antropolog unga kubanska reggaeton-dansare som önskar att de kunde uppträda med R&B-stjärnan Chris Browns i USA. I Theatre Musical in Stånga reser en konstnär till Stånga för att leta efter en skola där hon som 12-åring framträtt i en musikal.

Sonia Hedstrand, Anna Kinbom och Rut Karin Zettergren arbetar alla med en kombination av performance och video med dokumentära aspekter. Teman som förenar deras praktiker är resande, migrerande populärkulturer, konsumtion, kamerans makt, underhållning, samt ett undersökande av konstnärsrollen i en globaliserad värld. Utställningen består av egna verk, projekt där konstnärerna assisterat varandra samt gemensamma samarbeten. De tre konstnärerna är baserade i Stockholm men har på senare år verkat på platser som Buenos Aires, São Paulo, Lagos, Kingston, Tokyo, Mexico City, Wien, Peking, New York, Kampala, Havanna, Bryssel och Nairobi.
